Spied: Toyota Hilux/Bimobil Camper - An uber-rare sighting around here, a right-hand drive diesel Toyota Hilux (Tacoma in the US, the Hilux in the rest of the world) with a German made Bimobil camper, or caravan body. It’s owned by an older couple from Germany, who had shipped it over to the states and they were touring North & Central America for 12 months. We crossed paths in the Wyoming mountains last summer and had a nice visit about their travels. I’m not sure which I envied more, having a year to spend on the road, or their sweet overland rig.

OVERVIEW (by Planetary Collective)
On the 40th anniversary of the famous ‘Blue Marble’ photograph taken of Earth from space, Planetary Collective presents a short film documenting astronauts’ life-changing stories of seeing the Earth from the outside – a perspective-altering experience often described as the Overview Effect.
The Overview Effect, first described by author Frank White in 1987, is an experience that transforms astronauts’ perspective of the planet and mankind’s place upon it. Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.
‘Overview’ is a short film that explores this phenomenon through interviews with five astronauts who have experienced the Overview Effect. The film also features insights from commentators and thinkers on the wider implications and importance of this understanding for society, and our relationship to the environment.
