The Lion in Summer Its 5 AM and Im lying on the Kalahari Desert face to face with a male lion Hes 20 feet or so away and I know deep down inside that he could cover that distance in less than 2 seconds Nothing happens for a long time Then he moves Its two weeks earlier and Im gathering a backpack with a mix of very warm and very cool clothes and stepping onto the Outback X3 the truck that we would drive across the desert The Outback X3 is no normal truck Imagine an enormous SUV Then slice off the roof Add an extra 5 or 10 feet on the back with extra seats a modified roof on the front half of it with lights and some seats on top and an external outlet for a big freezer to keep meat cold and you have the Outback X3 the only vehicle you could ever need It was like a tank - unstoppable but 50 times faster On long stretches it could easily hit 180 200 mph The Outback stops and within 5 minutes we can set up a camp site that we can take apart in 2 minutes There are 7 of us out here - my parents my brother myself our tracker Thomas our guide Pete and their boss Diane We drove long stretches daily often flying across the desert at 100 mph so that we could cover 400 mile drives across the desert safely in less than 6 hours We take just enough clothes to survive and pile into the Outback We get going our first long stretch takes us 200 miles into the heart of the Kalahari We stop to make camp at 10 oclock that night Now Diane wasnt only the boss but the cook as well and he had tons of meat to eat Whatever was cooked but not eaten we couldnt keep so it was left
