In the third photo, does the boy have a gun in his hand?My views are 2-fold I guess. First off, are the stories my Mother told me of the adventures my Grandparents took her on thru northern Africa and elsewhere as a kid. My Grandfather was one of those larger than life adventure type souls. As kids we would sit in awe and listen to his tales and stories.
Secondly, would be the spirit of misadventure that has been left in my genes by both my Mother and Father..... and how it plays out as the lust for travel takes us on our adventures.
My Grandmother, picture taken by my Mother....somewhere in Morocco I believe. Their trusty Bedford took them everywhere. Eventually my Grandparents would ship it from the UK to Canada, drive it across the country, find a spot near Hope, BC to call home, build a cabin and settle in for the remainder.

My Mother and Uncle on some adventure somewhere in Germany. My Grandfather was stationed there and he would "borrow" vehicles from the carpool to take his family exploring and on camping trips.

Trying to do my lineage proud. Camped out on the point in Tuktoyaktuk in July 2018. As soon as I heard they were building the all weather road, I knew I wanted to drive North as soon as possible after it opened. We were fortunate in that we traveled up North before it became too popular, and were able to camp right on the point at the end of the road. I've nevertraveled near that far North before, it was a trip of a lifetime for me and one I won't soon forget. The new road from Inuvik to Tuk was still so new they were continually laying gravel and grading it, and we drove a good portion of that 150+km in 4Hi just to track thru it.
