Quite a lot about a small part of Santiago.

Posted by on Mar 13, 2013 in Chile, Places to Trek, South America | 0 comments

This is a story written by my friend Daniel Hagen, who introduced me to South Africa and showed me its true culture and people. He has recently moved to Chile to teach English. If you would like to hear more of his adventures visit here! -Evan Quite a lot about a small part of Santiago. “I grew up in this town, my poetry was born between the hill and the river, it took its voice from the rain, and like the timber, it steeped itself in the forests.” – Pablo Neruda Saddam Hussein is alive and he drives a taxi in Santiago. I saw him just the other day. I have now spent just over a week in Santiago, having arrived in less than ideal circumstances.  Getting from Brazil to Chile was not a pleasant experience, with a needless...

Moose Stew with Gravy

Posted by on Jan 25, 2013 in Go West U.S., Montana, North America, Places to Trek | 0 comments

After spending three months filming a moose hunt in the mountains of Montana, packing out the quartered carcass across the rocky mountains, and processing the meat for days, I can finally reap the rewards of my labor. This is a simple and easy recipe to make, but no less tasty. The main ingredients include- -Pressure cooker -2 lbs of moose meat -6 small potatoes -1 onion -5 garlic cloves -3 long carrots -1 tbsp olive oil -salt -pepper -1/2 cup white wine -2 cups water -2 cans of beef gravy First, set your pressure cooker to brown. Chop up the moose meat into squares and brown in the pressure cooker with 1 tbsp of olive oil.

Missouri Breaks

Posted by on Oct 15, 2012 in Go West U.S., Montana, Places to Trek | 0 comments

Trekking deep into the wilderness in search of Elk can bring you to places where no other human has traveled in years. One great place to do this is in the Missouri Breaks in Eastern Montana.  The desert terrain of the land, with the addition of the constantly moving mountains of sand and dirt carved from the overflowing Missouri river, makes the land very difficult to explore.  The first European’s to explore into this territory were the Lewis and Clark expedition which warned of the perils of land the land including the prickly pears(whose thorns caused Lewis’s foot to swell with infection), the Grizzly Bears, and the threat of the “Gumbo” when it rains (Gumbo refers to deep slippery mud that forms in the Breaks even with a small amount of rain). Lewis concluded that no one would ever settle on this land....

Eastern Montana and the Missouri Breaks

Posted by on Sep 7, 2012 in Go West U.S., Montana, Places to Trek | 1 comment

About to leave for Colorado for 3 weeks to hunt elk at high elevation. Sadly I will not have cellphone or internet to keep in contact with the outside world. But, in the meantime here is some photos I was able to take in between filming elk hunting in the Missouri Breaks and Antelope hunting in eastern Montana. We began this trip by staying at a Hutterite community in an old abandoned farm-house in the middle of the plains. The Hutterites who thrive off the profit of their vast amounts of land and farming live here disconnected from the world. They rarely make contact with outsiders,so to say the least they enjoyed our company. When on the farm, however disconnected from the world, the world still finds you in the form of nuclear missile silos. Supposedly, very anti-war even...

Go West Continued…Western South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana

Posted by on Aug 29, 2012 in Go West U.S., Montana, Places to Trek, South Dakota | 0 comments

Left Brookings, South Dakota and my great girlfriend on Saturday and headed West towards Montana where I will be filming a wildlife/hunting show for the next three months. During the 12 hour drive to Billings, Montana I moved through the plains of the Northwest and watched the gradual change in the landscape.  While travelling many of the same paths as the Lewis and Clarke expedition I felt as if I was living a history book. Many of the rivers and mountains I stopped to photograph were historical markers where either Lewis, Clarke, or Sacagawea had paved the way West. While travelling across the plains I began to grasp the harshness of the terrain. The dry climate has caused a land void of life and full of run down remnants of past boom days.  Old crumbling ranches, abandoned cars, and rusty farm equipment litter...
