If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you’ve no doubt seen me mention Dave Cornthwaite and his Expedition 1000 project on more than one occasion. The concept is a simple one: Dave wants to undertake a series of expeditions, covering 1000 miles (1609 km) or more, completely under his own power. He’s already been successful at a number of those expeditions and he is always planning his next one too. The beautiful and inspiring video below shares the philosophy behind Expedition 1000 – where it came from and where it is going. It also gives us a glimpse at some of the things Dave has accomplished so far on his amazing adventures.
Dave isn’t letting up however. Later this year he has a 2000 mile recumbent bike ride through Chile’s Atacama Desert scheduled and another 1000 mile non-motorized expedition in Europe as well. After that, it’ll be 2000 miles of kitesurfing in Brazil.
At this point, I’m not sure if he ever stops moving.
