juan manuel

We overtook Juan Manuel after we had driven uphill for quite some time. And since we wanted to take a break anyway, I waved him to our place and we offered hin coffee and chocolate.

He is a venazuelan guy, left his country some time ago and lives by juggling, clowning and unicycling. He has welded his bike by himself using a lot of iron. His bike weights about 130 kg together with der rider, but he brings hardly anything on the scales. Downhill it is getting fast, sometimes too fast, as his missing incisors prove. Juan Manuel is a happy guy, he always was laughing when he told his stories, then he got on his bike again and kept pedaling uphill.

“heavenly heckflosse” / gold medal

Today I got a great mail from gary anderson, the editor-in-chief of the mercedes-benz club of america. I was awarded a gold medal for the best photography in the american car magazines in 2016. I had photographed andrew atwood´s perfectly restored “heckflosse” for „the star“ magazine as a small thank you for his help and support searing for the failure in our truck software.

By the way: Last year I got gold medals as well. At that time for my contribution “the big trek” in “the star” magazine.

globetrotter meeting

It was nice, at the fifth globetrotter meeting at the unimog museum / gaggenau / germany. Even a unimog, which we had seen in alaska, was here. Making friends, having interesting conversations, cooking and eating together, that´s what makes such meetings special. In addition, several lectures (a small one held by myself), completed the program.
