Which Central Asia country are you most looking forward to:
Kyrgyzstan and Iran
How would you describe bush camping to someone that has never done this before:
One word: freedom
Same as camping on a camp site with the benefits of free-to-pick-your-spot, being-out-there, great-star-viewing, no-noise-regulations, again: freedom
What are you looking forward to on your Central Asia trip:
Meeting different cultures, having some awesome views, good trekking.
Best animal you have seen on trip and why:
Cougar! Unexpectedly appeared on the way to the start of a 3 day trip in Torres del Paine.

Bife del Chorizo, Argentinia
Best drink on a trip:
Freshly blended fruit juice in just about any South American market.
What should people expect from an Overland trip:
stunning views, what-you-put-in-you-get-out attitude, not to have to shower everyday, great people to travel with, flat tires, late nights, lots of pictures to sort out, lots of outdoor adventures, different food you used to, truck games, adjusting to and learning about local cultures.
