Our day arrived, after a long time preparation here it comes. Our adventure in Pakistan can finally start.

Is there a better place than the high mountains of the Karakoram to fly, hike and train? I am leaving tomorrow to meet my friends Hernan Pitocco and Horacio Llorens in Abu Dhabi. From there we get on a plane to Islamabad. Red Bull Pakistan will be waiting for us there. We will stay 3 days in the city waiting for the rest of our team (prod, photographer, tandem pilot, etc. Then we go to Hunza. Hunza became famous trough the adventurous flights of John Sylvester and Brad Sanders. We are going there with a prod team to produce a film and hopefully enjoy the incredible flying conditions. :-) Stay tuned.

Hi all,

There is just 20 days left before we get on the plane to Islamabad. I am getting all the necessary gears bit by bit. For once I think I will be ready on time... I needed a third expedition to the Karakoram to learn how to get ready on time...

I just received a huge box full of brand new Black Diamond gears I will bring to Pakistan next month... ;-) Looking forward to use it in real conditions... For now I am just climbing trees around my house and running around with my bagpack full of old books to train for the Red Bull X Alps...

The trekking poles are so light and super short when packed.. Perfect for the race too. The BD team also sent me a few headlamps for late night walk... Getting ready... :-)
You know the saying: "hope for the best but be ready for the worse." Let's see if we can fly high...
