    Drone Laws world map and travelling with drones

    Unfortunately this isnt maintained well. It can be done, like theses "global fencing" on lime eletric scooters whichs just drive slow in inner cities or when the parkingzones are limited. But DJI didnt restrict any of my flights so far. Does this just works in the US? Surfy

    Best 4x4 not actually going very far..

    It`s always easy to tell about the good old times. Are they really that nice? Is everything newer that bad? I`m not shure, if I had enjoyed my 110`000km / 68`000 Miles trip through africa, south america that much in one of these old camel trophy cars. No aircon means open Windows, means a...

    To drive the officially closed road 40 from Payogasta to San Antonio, was not one of my best ideas. To prepare the vanished roads at above 4000m heigh, to put big rocks in the rivers to build a passage you can cross... That was way too much for my condition at that height... Stupid to...
