Pole to Pole Manpowered 2007
James Hooper and Rob Gauntlett, two 19 year old teenagers from UK are embarking on a remarkable journey that will take them from the North Pole to the South Pole using only human and natural power. They have already succeeded in setting foot on the summit of Mount Everest earlier this year on 17 May 2006. However, this is the first time such an expedition is attempted.
Their challenge called “180 Degrees – Pole to Pole Manpowered” will begin in March 2007. This groundbreaking adventure will be a combination of skiing, cycling and sailing. The whole journey will cover 17,000 miles over 3 continents and is estimated to take 10 months to complete. Check out the introductory video from the following link.
