A van as a mobile base to photograph the Arctic
Living in a van far north of the arctic circle ? Does not sound like a smart plan ? You might be right but it’s not even a camper =) It’s just a regular cargo van and you can’t stand in it so it’s all you would not choose when looking for a camper.
I think it’s the perfect car and I will try to explain why. When up in the north and out in the cold the last think you need is a lot of room to heat up and to get dry.
Your clothes will always be wet and cold when you come back and your boots will need a lot of heat to be used again. So having a relative small car which can be heated up to a sauna with a average heating system makes live a lot easier.
Every window is a bridge for the cold to come in so this will be limited to one single window on the workplace and this window will be the best I can find when it comes to insulation.
The car will:
– carry all the gear
– keep me warm
– provide power to charge all the camera / PC equipment
– provide a kitchen out of the cold
– be a warm bed in all weather condition
– store my clothes
– store the necessary outdoor equipment
Ok, so as most people start there van reports with Isolation I start mine with a workshop, insurance and myself moving to the northernmost lighthouse on the mainland.
Slettnes Lighthouse and working remote in the best possible way =)
