Manolo al Sol, learning by adventure.
While on playa at the 2019 Burn, met some hazel-eyed Argentinian ladies with these incredibly mesmerizing sky-blue pupils. They were talking about an upcoming southern hemisphere solar eclipse happening at the end of 2020.
They had been eye-witnesses to the Oregon 2017 solar eclipse (Aug 21, 2017) up in the Pacific Northwest, describing the journey from the celestial event, then coming down to the Nevada high desert for the Burn later that month. It sent a shiver down my spine!
It was total irony discovering all this at Burning Man, at a completely man-made and artificial experience. Discovering the next destination would be a total solar eclipse occurring over Patagonia from Dec 10-16, 2020.
With 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 truck, with an M.O. of hitting much of the unimproved roads and being trail angel along the way.
