Here’s another great expedition that is set for next year, in which former British solider Ripley Davis will set out on a solo, unsupported trek across Mongolia in an effort to raise funds and awareness of the Hope and Homes for Children project, and UNICEF.
The expedition is slated to get underway next April, with Ripley pulling all of his supplies behind him in a wheeled cart. He anticipates that he’ll be towing more than 100kg (220 pounds) of gear over a 3000km (1865 miles) course between 47º and 50º north latitude. The journey is expected to take roughly 90 days.
Ripley has just launched his website for the expedition with plenty of news and information on his plans. On the site you’ll find more details on the route he’ll be taking, recent news on his preparations, as well as links to the charities he’ll be working for and sponsorship opportunites for becoming part of the project. Youc an also learn more about Ripley himself and his previous adventures as well as read an FAQ on his latest endeavor.
This is going to be an amazing adventure to follow next year. A trek across Mongolia is no small feat, as the vast majority of that country is still very remote and rugged. Good luck Ripley! We’ll be pulling for you all the way.
