First and foremost, before i even begin – We both wanna apologize for the tardiness in this post. We were hoping to have this up on the 19th or so but we just haven’t had anything for cell reception or internet in weeks.
Second order of business, we haven’t been able to properly thank everyone who helped with our kickstarter campaign. It was fully funded and ended up reaching 112%. We’re ecstatic about that. Thank you all so much.
Our roadtrip is real and happening and that reality is slowing creeping more and more into us as we go farther and farther from home. Our first stop was Moab, Utah where we spent a week backpacking and photographing the arches. The heat was intense. It was a constant battle to simply stay hydrated. At points during our stay, the days would top out at 105F. The night’s were cooler – some went to an unpleasently cold temperature, but i’ll take cold over hot any day of the week.
We met a small handful of people in Moab. Two became great acquaintances. Smart cookie photographers who can dial in star exposures like it’s nothing – Shaun and Micheal. You can read a pretty funny segment about our experience with them on his flikr feed (the link).
We’ve got another post on Moab coming in a couple days so stay posted.
