Australian Lecture Tour Details [3rd Oct 08] See below for comments (8)
Australian Lecture Tour!
In May, Chris Bray (then 24) and Clark Carter (then 23), both from Sydney, began hauling, paddling and dragging 500kgs of equipment and supplies behind them in unique carts they designed and built themselves. Their mission: to cross 700kms of snow, frozen lakes, mud plains, boulder fields, tundra, endless jagged ice, shattered rock and even rapids.
Their remarkable journey is a world first, with the duo passing through regions that have likely never before been seen by human eyes.
Overcoming countless setbacks, the pair encountered arctic wolves and polar bears, and were forced to make do with what limited resources they had to repair and even re-build their carts along the way. But that‘s what makes it an adventure.
Come and hear Chris and Clark recount their amazing adventure for one night only in your city.

I can put you up, I have lots of tents, only kidding. Love to see you in Perth. Give us a bit of notice and we could book a Hills camp site in Lesmurdie. Sit around a fire and tell stories. Accross the road, an open air theatre. Tempted? You deserve it. You have entertained us! (Offensive Comment?)
