Well, I started this little challenge to give everyone a chance to make a compilation of their best posts and let everyone read about it.
If you want to join the challenge, Check the announcement here. Also, If i nominate you and you want to humour me and join, check the announcement cause it´s got a few rules.
It started to move towards me. In the heat of the moment I wasn´t paying attention to how close I was and how threatened could this animal feel having me around. Wait, I´ve seen this before, this is the position they take right before striking, if the Boa feels he is not a match for you but feels threatened, it will strike trying to bite you to scare you away...Continue reading
We reached base camp. It was nothing like I expected. There was not one soul there even though we know a lot of tours climb Acatenango on a daily basis. Did we make a mistake? Is it today a dangerous day to climb therefore no one came today? Are we in the right spot?
It was already almost dark. I am never going to be able to set up camp and light a fire, we need help. I whistled and not a single reply was heard...Continue reading
If you have ever climbed a mountain or volcano you might concur with this: Making summit is about the challenge but once you are there, the climate conditions are so harsh that you don´t want to stay for a long time. Well, as you might have guessed correctly, I am not like that.
So I took off my Batman Hoodie and one of my shirts, improvised a flag and declared Acatenango´s Summit as... A Nomad Soul´s territory...Continue reading
We both jumped into the water and pushed the boat against the waves but it wasn´t enough, other people came to our aid when they noticed we couldn´t get it done by ourselves and then, all at once - coordination is key to succeed - pushed and after 10 minutes we reached open water and jumped on the boat, ready to attack the Cayes.
After one hour navigating the Caribbean we reached this island called Chachahuate, an island full of houses and people, literally no space to build another house, every available inch had already something built. I have to admit I was a little...Continue reading
It had to happen. To put yourself in continuous risk sometimes catches up on you. But it doesn´t mean that I´m going to stop getting the most I can from this journey. The doctor was very clear. Eric, by the looks of your injuries your back should be broken or your head should be open. I don´t know how or why but you are a rough guy, like Tarzan. Words that obviously were a compliment to my ears...Continue reading
I have never wild-camped before and I know in some parts of Europe it is forbiden but still, we had no other option. We decided to walk to the edge of the road and walk towards a hidden spot where we could pitch our tent and sleep at least for a few hours - you have to wake up very early before the sun comes out in order to avoid being detected in case the police comes around. For me this was kind of stressful mainly because...Continue reading
Next two are my most personal posts on the Blockchain
Growing up I was insecure to the point of not being able to speak to other people to avoid stuttering. When I finally convinced my mom to order pizza I couldn´t call the pizza shop myself because I wholeheartedly believed that the person on the other side of the phone would laugh at my stuttering. I was 8 years old and was so worried at what other people would think of me when meeting me that I chosed to be a loner.
My drinking became a habit. I started to fail at college, a very expensive college which my parents were struggling to pay for. I was drinking on school nights and going to uni on the next day still drunk, driving the car my parents gave me. Obviously, I lost the semester, my girl, my dignity and the remaining respect my college buddies had for me but most importantly, I lost both of my parents trust.
Next post is my most "succesful" in terms of payout and I´m really proud of the job we all did to achieve it. I apologize for uploading it to scammy, deceiving and treachorous Dlive but I didn´t know they were like this back then.
I hope you liked reading these few posts I´m very proud of, I hope it wasn´t too much from me in one take :P
I know a lot of Steemians who would definitely love joining this idea and also that I would love to read their "best" posts, so, I am nomating:
Yeah, I nominated too many but I don´t care, perks of starting the challenge myself :P
I also want to thank (and nominate) @theaustrianguy for his message today, it was you who inspired this little challenge man. Don´t forget to follow him.
