My friends and family do know my engagement and effort I personally do to reduce my waste and energy consumption. It is not fair to pretend to one of the most pure desert trek (no stove, no cart, just me, the sands, the wind, the animals and the stars) if I fly to Australia for just a few weeks. CO2Logic does offset my carbon emissions for the entire expedition (flights, cars). They were already doing this in the 2008 expedition so I'm very happy to count them again as a partner.
For the Americans who read this, well they are also in the USA so have a look at their site.
I used the Panasonic HDC SD800 for all my expeditions since 2011. It was at that time the best prosumer camera with stunning image quality and OIS (stabilization). I made it suffer from -70m to 4500m on 3 continents. Panasonic agreed to give me a new model to suit my next expeditions.
As in 2008, the family owned business with be my safeline. I would never leave without an EPIRB distress beacon and a Satphone. You only have one life...and only 2 legs and 2 arms to save in case of.
Cascade Designs, the company owning MSR and Thermarest are now giving me something better to carry my water in the Simpson Desert. Using water bladders (goon, from wine cubicles) is nice and lighter but too fragile. I had a leak in Death Valley. I didn't loose that much water and din't get too wet but it's the loss of time to figure that out and stress that I want to avoid this time. Water is time. I can only succeed with no failures all the way to the end.

Many Thanks to my colleague Pascal Massin who 3Dprinted a small converter device to link my Panono 360 camera to m tripod screw.
