Lost Blog Posts Volume III: Namibia Part 2 - Episode 1 Sossusvlei Dunes

Here's a treat since you all have been so good. The first video of the blog! I spent a huge chunk of the day trying to figure out the best way to do this and have found a pretty nice solution. Perhaps more videos will appear in the future as well.

I am not going to write much about it today. Descriptions and pictures will be posted in Episode 2. This was from the vacation to Namibia I went on quite a while ago. All you really need to know is that the best way to get down the huge dunes in the Namib desert is to run down them. Look out for celebrity guest appearances from other famous Peace Corps South Africa Bloggers. Warning: Very shaky at times and I apologize for my cackling and heavy panting but what do you expect, I was running down an enormous sand dune!


You'll notice I came really close to face-planting a few times. Holding the camera did not help out at all.

No kidding, you flew down that thing! I ran out of gas near the bottom. Definitely harder than it seems.

Shawn & Danny would have loved that giant sand dune!

Obviously a love for giant dunes is written into the Prescott genes. We were probably dune people a few 1000 years ago.
