Expedition 360

June 20, 2007 | 1 Comment

Thanks to Kathy Barlow with Travel Insurance Services for sending information about her friend Jason Lewis’ Expedition 360, “an attempt at one of the last great firsts for true circumnavigation: reaching antipodal points on the surface of the globe using only human power (no motors or sails). Bicycles, in-line skates, kayaks, swimming, walking and a unique pedal powered boat are being used by Englishman Jason Lewis and an international team to travel over 40,000 miles across five continents, two oceans and one sea (1994 – 2007).”

Check out Jason’s fascinating journal; he’s currently in Sudan (Wadi Halfa), where at midday “I have to wear gloves to even touch my bike frame without getting burnt.” Here’s a link to a piece by Carl Nolte about Jason’s journey that ran in the SF Chronicle.

    Jason is due to complete this 13-year expedition this October. The final legs of the expedition and completing this quest will make for a compelling story. Jason can be reached directly via email at jason@expedition360.com
