I can't decide whether I'm jealous or thankful that I can view something so amazing from the comfort of my couch...

INCREDIBLE.

Nate:

Be thankful. Youtube (among other sites) is off limits in China (where I am traveling now).

Put this video on your list of to-dos when you get back. It's pretty crazy.

Well, at least the Chinese government hasn't yet discovered how subversive ultralight backpackers can be. :)

Oh - sorry about the off limits Ben.

I have watched it several times and I concur - bookmark it.

I thought you were back before Christmas?

Howdy Dave:

I have just one more day here in China. Hard to believe that my 7-month trip is fast coming to an end.

I will be boarding my freighter ship on 11/23 -- and should be back home around 12/5 -- a 13 day crossing.

Once I get back, I plan to spend "quality time" going through the forums and the articles. I'll be sure to view the link then.

Hey Ben, I've been thinking your trip must be near its conclusion. I'm looking forward to plenty of stories when you are back on US soil.

safe travels!

an original moment on 12/03/2009 22:46:13 MST Print View

You know I think in many ways this sums up why I like traveling in the outdoors so much.

Not that I'll ever have a moment this amazing. (Though anyone could, you never know.)

It is the originality and uniquness of the experiences I'm mostly talking about. And we all have truely unique and original experiences all the time.

Particularly in a world full of youtube videos of completely contrived human experiences recycled over and over (man hit in balls, music videos, train wrecks, etc, etc, etc.) an original experience with the natural world is truely refreshing.

That's just absolutely amazing. Nature is an amazing thing. It will never stop amazing me. Great photos. I'm thankful every day that i've discovered the joy of the outdoors.
