Video: Dave Cornthwaite’s Expedition 1000 Project

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.
