Adventures in Australia - ask my gear by email on 02/20/2007 08:52:32 MST Print View

Dear all,

my name and website is : http://www.Louis-Philippe-Loncke.com

I call myself a Belgian Adventurer Photographer, as my aim is to show what I've been seeing, and no go to places where the main reason is only a challenge (not interested to go to North Pole as when there, not much to see)

I'm just back fom 1 year in Australia, where I did 3 adventurers (all solo, no fooddrops, completely unsupported, no communication systems):

* The Mountains of the Outback, 330km, 12 days
* The Great Sand Island, 250 km, 9 days
* Wild Mountains of Tasmania, +- 500km, 47 days

You find reports on my website in the adventure section. For the last project, you'll have to wait a bit for the excel file, the photos and some info about how it went.
Briefly said I started with 49 kg (not very light) containing 40 days of food. I lasted 47 days as I had to finish to save my life. After 40 days I still had food, broke my GPS and the vegetation was so dense I couldn't even use a personal locator beacon... and I had no Satelite phone.
Underway I met lots of Australians impressed by the adventure aims (climbing 15 mountains underway, I climbed 19 at the end) and asked me for a book. I'm thinking seriously about it.

I'll put a draft content of the book asap on my website, probably in the Media section.

So if you like my adventures, drop me a line (see contact on website). Feel free to ask me more if you wanna walk in these areas.

PS: More photos wil be added in MArchApril
PS2:Website is in English if you click on th English Flag.

PS3: I'll probably create a mailing list for people who wants to receive 2 times per year a newsletter (especially if a book comes out :p or to annunce new projects). Drop me a line with "mailing list" if you wanna be in.
Otherwise my blog has news once in a while:
