Thanks Scott, I tryed but I did not know how to put here the youtube movie..

About the cameras, I use one Nikon D100 and one small Canon MiniDV sometimes with one bullet cam attach, they are quite robust but in the end of the next trip I probably have to by new ones

Bom ler português por aqui, um abraço

I'm Canon. I used an an EOS300D (that's a Digital Rebel for you 'mericans ) on the Guinea leg, but you can count on a lot of dust on the sensor. Also because I keep changing lenses... at the time I carried an 8mm fisheye and the POS 18-55 kit lens.

The fisheye is nice - dramatic distortion!

Went looking for the fisheye ones and found this one related with the sandblast winds we got on that road...



Notice the sand on the left side of the rim... the wind always blows from NE, from the inland, and carries a lot of the saharan sand to the coast.

So did you end up with a lot of sand in your camera? I remember after a day of riding and taking pics, there was a slight progression of a fogging affect caused by the dust on my lense

I can only imagine what the dust out there would do!

A bit more about the Fromager here et ici.

About the cameras, there's not really much one can do. Dust in the sensor and lenses is inevitable. But these Nikon and Canon digital SLR's are tough MF's - they take the abuse quite well.

This has been an amazing report, with incredible photos. Kudos to all of you for seizing the day and revelling in the adventure. It truly is difficult for many of us to create the space in our lives for such a journey. As the parent of two small children, I struggle many times with balancing all of the things that my heart yearns for--being there when my children need me, riding dirt bikes with my friends, adventure riding around the world, maintaining a strong and beautiful marriage, exposing my children to the joys of international travel, providing financial stability for my family, and so on. Generally speaking, I think it may be easier logistically for men to be gone from their families for a month (or two or three) than women. (I may be wrong.) And the fact that I have an adventurous husband who wants to go along on my journeys means that the children wouldn't have a parent at home to attend to their needs if I were away for a very long time. Yes, my husband and I do plan on having our "round the world" ride "when the children are grown". (I know it will happen!) However, in the meantime, we fulfill our dreams by getting away for a few weeks at a time here and there to ride motorcycles in faraway places--including Bolivia last year, and Bhutan at the end of this year. And we also travel extensively with the children to have family adventures. In fact, we will be arriving in Lisbon, Portugal soon (in 13 days!) to experience your beautiful country for two glorious weeks with our children. We will be in Lisbon for three days, staying near the Praca Camoes--perhaps we can all share a meal together and talk about your travels.

Anyway, I have truly enjoyed your story and video (the music choice was excellent). Thank you for sharing your adventures with all of us.
