This convenience carries over into 2021 when we’re seeing restrictions on our movements ease more and more. I love to be self-contained and have everyone in one place. I’d always choose my Adamo 75-4 DL over a hotel room for work for a number of reasons.
Firstly there is ease of being able to pack all my kit (and sometimes there is a lot of it) in one place and be able to access it at any time rather than have it spread between hotel, car and location. I have the room to set up an office and, because I usually have my Adamo on-site with me, I can chip away at writing, editing or answering emails when I have breaks during the day or when I’m waiting for dinner to cook or the coffee to brew.
The ability to cook food for myself is important to me. In previous years it’s all too easy to fall into bad eating habits when on the road filming. Whether its service stations, take-aways or tasty hotel food there are not many healthy options. My work requires me to be in reasonable physical condition and I strive to eat well. The Adamo, with its massive fridge/freezer means I can stock up on supplies and fuel myself when traveling.
Another advantage to my recovery and performance is sleep, something hugely important to me, and something I often struggle with when I find myself in a different hotel bed every night. I, and I think most people, sleep better in a familiar setting, ideally their own bed. I’ve now spent so many nights in my Adamo that it’s my second bedroom and I can sleep as well there as in my other, fixed-to-the-ground, home.
