Pass The Remote

Extras from the road trip with Team Remote

Words and Photography by Garrett Cortese

Most trips never go according to plan, especially those of the wake variety. So it can only be reasoned that the Remote team trip last fall went so well because there was no plan at all. The story we featured in the Photo Annual issue of Alliance was one of the best trips I went on last year, and it was a trip that didn’t include an exotic destination, or even a lake for that matter.

The fact that we didn’t have a plan on this trip only made it that much more fun. We were free to do what we wanted, when we wanted to. Obviously we came up with a general idea of where we were going and when, but that general idea was altered many times and many different ways throughout the course of the trip. From finding friends on Facebook helping us locate new spots, to just looking at Google Earth on our iPhones and scouting, we were constantly tweaking the trip and looking for new, fun things to do. None of this would have been possible, of course, if it weren’t for the little machine stuck into the hitch on the back of the Sprinter van: the winch.
