Base Camp – Mount Everest 2017
For some people, an adventure of this magnitude happens once in a lifetime. But for Sandra, an experienced world traveller, Base Camp at Mount Everest was only a little hill to climb!
I got wind of Sandra’s expedition as she was raising funds through Interplast for the Turia Pitt Everest Trek 2017. It wasn’t hard to get on board and support such a great cause.
Despite being a single mom with an 18-month old little boy, Sandra trained hard! Every spare moment was hiking up trails between Byron Bay to Noosa (Australia). Building up the stamina and focus to tackle this amazing adventure.
Well done Sandra, you are an outstanding person. And thanks for sending through a photo at Base Camp with your Ride The Swell 10L Dry Bag.

Most of the Ride The Swell Dry Bag users are people who are kayaking, hiking, or simply heading to the beach. But we recently received photos and an email from Liz and Sal, who ventured down to Antarctica! Here’s their story ….
One of the requirements for the trip was to take a Dry Bag. And with what we experienced, it was essential equipment. We decided to take a 20L and 10L bags, and both were used nearly every day. As the brochure said, no two days were ever the same!
Leaving Argentina, the cruise ship took 2 days to get to Antarctica. We were lucky enough to have several trips out on the zodiacs (inflatable boats). Taking our brand new camera, some food and water, and a few other belongings, the 20L Dry Bag was large enough and gave us reassurance that nothing was going to get ruined with water. And having the double straps was so handy when walking around the Shackleton’s camp.
None of the photos I have sent have been touched up. The colours there are amazing! And the wildlife absolutely abundant. Mind you, as cute as those penguins look, the smell is beyond belief!
Thanks RTS. We’ll be using our Dry Bags for many more adventures!
Thanks Liz for sending through your Ride The Swell story. Looks like Antarctica is going on my bucket list now too.
Sally recently used her 20L Orange Ride The Swell Dry Bag on her travels through Argentina. Here she as Iguacu Falls.Â She sent through this photo after taking a break on her hike.
“I didn’t want to take a lot with me, but I grabbed my 20L Dry Bag all the same”, Sally writes. “A water bottle, my hotel room key, purse, sunscreen and a throw over sweater. It was cooler than I thought, so I put the sweater on after we had stopped half way.”
This orange 20L Dry Bag has the Double Straps which makes it ideal for hiking. And while it might have been a little large for the activity for the day, it kept all her belongings secure and dry.
Congratulations Sally. That’s one great shot of the Iguacu Falls. And one great memory that will last a life time!
