Getting out in a hurry. By Kate Leeming

March 27, 2020

Kate cycling Death Road, South Yungas, Bolivia

“As you are probably aware, I had to get out of Bolivia in a hurry, in fact we caught the last flight out of La Paz before the airport and country closed. Now on my sixth day of self-isolation, I thought I'd pull out a few images of me using the Hammerhead rain jacket. It was a vital piece of equipment given the rain and windchill I had to deal with.

Hopefully, I will be able to return to South America and complete the last two-thirds of the journey once this virus is under control.

Hope you are all OK at Mont.

Cheers, Kate”

Are there underlying differences between sites with differing dieback severity, or is dieback severity a product of patterns in the spread of the insect responsible?”

“@mont.. good tent!

Here is some camera phone footage of a storm that rolled in quickly and caused a surprising amount of change to the landscape. I couldn’t escape my tent so I’m glad it protected me from the weather. It was a bit scary but also very beautiful. Other tents around mine were torn to shreds. Always choose quality! 👌”
