I really enjoyed the presentation on Expeditions 7 by Greg at the Expo, and looking forward to hearing about the south and central America segments!
Whatever the pace, it beats sitting at home hammering on a keyboardQuestion: Why the grueling pace?
No question about that, but I was surprised at the 24 hour continuous driving. Daylight alone doesn't seem like the sole reason to do so. I was wondering if there was a storm cell that was pushing you guys, or permit issues, or whatever. Then again, maybe staying in the cabin was more comfortable than setting up at tent at those temperatures!Whatever the pace, it beats sitting at home hammering on a keyboard
Some travelers meander, some like to pack the experiences in, some have other responsibilities that dictate a faster pace. The E7 pace works for the team, and we have had a blast!
To echo what Scott said, in my 1992 Subaru Loyale 1.8, I block the entire radiator with cardboard, leave it plugged in to about 500Watts of block heater, oil pan heater and battery blanket permanently, let it idle for about 30 mins before driving, and even after 2 hours of driving at -40C/F, the temp needle never moves from absolute rock bottom....at -40...... At idle, the engine actually looses heat to the point of being a risk.
