Desert Walk

When you pass by what looks like a great desert sometimes you just have to stop, get out of your truck and take a quick walk. Trouble is, when you are still adjusting to the high altitude of Tibet, you can tire yourself out pretty quickly as Kathy learns. Next post, we will see a more overt version of the dificulty of that even climbing stairs at high altitudes can provide.

Stay tuned for that.

4000 meters that's about 13000 feet, the tibeten highlands I presume. The himalayans. The roof of the world. It' funny but even in the video you get a sense of the height and yet all those peaks around. Perhaps it's the lack of vegitation. Perhaps it's because the clouds are so close.

The highest I've been is 13,400 or was it 14,000. Up in Arapahoe basin aka A-basin ski resort in Colorado. Also, up in the Loveland pass. Perhaps I'm a wuss but it it would have even occured to me to take a jog like that I would have blacked out I think.

This is truely awesome footage. You've got a great thing going here. If we can somehow monetize this stuff, get it on cell phones and other portable devices and set top boxes I'd bet people would pay money to follow this story. We need marketplaces though.

Great stuff.

We were not even close to the Himalaya's at that point. That desert was about 2 hours from Lhasa.

As far as Tibet is concerned we were at low altitude there.
