Watch Long Way Up

Pull up a couch. It's cool in the Lounge. Just remember to be a good neighbor.

Watch Long Way Up

Post by troy »

Some of you are probably aware of the latest ride adventure series from Ewan MacGregor and Charley Boorman.

It appears the only way currently to watch the show is through AppleTV. I ended up starting a 7 day trial and installed the AppleTV app on my Roku streaming device. This was a pain in the butt, by the way, because I'm not an "Apple guy". I had to install iTunes just to setup a payment method to start the trial. Really? Is that the only way to make this work? Why did I have to install an app I don't care about and won't use just to give you money for your TV app?

My wife and I are on about episode 6 and have enjoyed it. The interesting thing is the boys are on electric Harleys custom built for the adventure. Also along are 2 beta Rivian electric trucks. I'm a big fan of what I've seen from Rivian so far. As you can imagine, the need for charging is making life difficult. By episode 5, I feel like they are hiding how bad the charging problem really is.

Some great South America scenery to enjoy, too.

I also enjoyed their "Long Way Around" and "Long Way Down" series.

I've watched them all so far and it definitely make me want to ride that western South America area. Kind of like the harley's. That being said that is the last place I would want to take them. You couldn't enjoy the ride always stressing your range. My work phone is an iPhone and so I got a year free of of apple TV with it.

Cool, Luc! I had not seen that interview. I will watch it.

My wife, Jodi, has loved Long Way Up so much so far she wanted to also watch Long Way Round and Long Way Down. We finished Round and have started Down. It's cool watching it with her as she has a greater understanding now for my week-long motorcycle camping adventures. We've both loved learning so much about different cultures and places.
