I made this photograph on the Masai Mara in late January, part of a one-month sojourn in Africa and time among nomadic tribes in the north before flying home to pack my life into boxes and prepare to begin a nomadic journey myself. It’s now the end of February as I write this. Every stick of furniture has been sold, conveniently, to the woman moving into my old condo. My remaining possessions have been boxed and stored, and my cameras and laptops and other essentials have been put into Pelican cases and packed in the truck. The truck, Jessie (read more about Jessie and our travel plans HERE), has had some issues and it’s been an adventure just getting her ready for this journey. Some of the pieces got done very last minute, some will just have to wait.
Tomorrow morning my buddy Al Smith and I will jump into the Land Rover and head to Tofino for a few days on the far west side of Vancouver Island to get the bugs out of the truck. Then I’ll come back to Vancouver, pick up Dave Delnea and head south towards Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, down the Oregon coast and eventually to San Francisco. At San Francisco Dave will fly home and I’ll just keep going.
Keep an eye on the blog, and on Twitter – that’s where you’ll find me, and when I pull into a town with time to spare I’ll let you know where you can find us and share a coffee or a meal.
Ok, big deep breath. Here we go.
