Manolo al Sol, an overland journey, learning by adventure.
While on playa at the 2019 Burn, serving cocktails with ice cubes from behind our theme camp bar to some friendly, hazel-eyed Argentinian ladies with these incredibly mesmerizing sky blue iris’, learned of the upcoming southern hemisphere solar eclipse. They had been eye-witnesses to the Oregon 2017 solar eclipse (Aug 21, 2017) up in the Pacific Northwest, and the way they described the climax of the celestial event, followed by coming down to the Nevada high desert for the Burn later that month, sent a resonating shiver down my spine!
It was total irony discovering all this at Burning Man, completely man-made and artificial yet a creative experience, that the next total solar eclipse would occur over Patagonia from Dec 10-16, 2020. Upon an invitation to their home country, it was now a matter of setting a trip heading and securing event tickets to the gatherings across Chile and Argentina.
Come along and let’s embark on another travel project and learn by adventure.

Bring on the overland journey south. Rolling on a 4×4 diesel vehicle, with an M.O. of hitting much of the improved roads and trail angeling along the way.
