Overseas above the sea: let's go West!

Dear fellow loungers,

After China in November I just did an other study trip, this time in Austin (McCombs) and Vegas (Vegas was for vacation, not study) ! It has been 2 weeks full of mechanical joy, with my trustee Overseas but not only...

Let's start with some local cultural exploration, Go Spurs Go!

Then relaxing with an other kind of toy (Bushmaster) - took care to remove the watch before the shooting session

Let's not forget to visit the local night clubs (Broken Spoke in Austin)

Very nice, but kind of reminds me the Titi Twister!

6h of hiking in the mud and snow... Don't tell me that an Overseas is not a real "sport" watch, even on the croc strap !

25 hours of driving in 5 days, but so hard to give the keys back crying, at least I brought the Overseas back home!

Whew, I'm tired just following along cool.  Your photo of Antelope Canyon is stunning (actually they are all stunning), but the dirty boots and Overseas combo is my favorite.  Great territory with awesome vistas and amazing contrasts; you've captured it all!  Thanks for showing us the Overseas truly "in the wild".
Hey, pardner!

Thanks for the pictures. I ordered this watch sight unseen and expect deliver sometime in may. Seeing pictures like this adds the the excitement of the wait. I love how much the watch seems to change depending on the lighting. 
Seb - thanks for taking us along...

I enjoyed your beautiful array of photographs as the journey unfolded. It's easy to appreciate how difficult it must have been to return theheart vehicle keys - falling in love with that beast wouldn't have taken too long. All in all the boots and the watch came through well! My journey was much slower than yours - just one frame at a timeyes. Sharing such a marvellous experience has been a tonic for the eyes. Good luck and safe driving. Best wishes Tony
Love the photos!

one of my watch collecting buddies is selling his Shelby GT-500. The spoiler is in the form of my spouse. :-) Bill
