MONTANUS

Montanus is an all-seasons bikepacking project, born in Abruzzo, the Italian region where the mountain chain Gran Sasso d’Italia shows its majesty. Montanus is an attitude, an intimate journey. Montanus is the call of the wild of Buck, the dog in the novel of Jack London. Montanus is the smell of moss on your gloves, the dry red mud on your bike, the frost on your sleeping bag. Montanus is the life outside from the ‘comfort zone', it is an inspiration for those who want to experience nature. Montanus is about enjoying the slow ride, perceiving the smells and taking in the colours. FB: https://www.facebook.com/MONTANUSthewildside IG: http://instagram.com/montanus_thewildside

@stefanfresh: Yep, the same mindset we use when a gas stove doesn't work or we have some issue with gear in the middle of nowhere. You need to find an alternative, that's the why they call this sort of adventure "unsupported" and you have to find an alternative if you want to continue the trip. You can find our past adventures here: www.montanuswild.com Ciao

Glad you like it. Planning a trip is part of the game and that's why adventure begins at home. We use to study the area we intend explore, consulting local paper maps, helping with Google Earth, RWGPS and Wikiloc, watching videos and sometimes we have to rely on instincts and intuitions, as we did in Patagonia. Near Lago Argentino we had no chances to follow the planned route, because the territory’s morphology has been altered by water rising from the melting of Perito Moreno glacier, and the maps were unusable. But that gain this is adventure!

Winds in Patagonia can be brutal. I remember when, during a storm, our tent was going to meet the same fate of that flag: https://vimeo.com/281403510/22f9b79ed8

...from Montane in classical Latin. Patagonia is an amazing place, far away but worth it.
