In early September 2012 Gareth Jones & Aaron Chervenak will begin a world-first, ‘human powered’ voyage from north to south across Brazil, covering a distance of over 9000km (5500miles) by foot, paddle and pedal over an estimated 15 months.
The expedition will begin in the remote Amazon jungles in Mount Caburai, where Brazil borders Guyana, and end down to the coast town of Chui, on the border with Uruguay.
Gareth and Aaron aim to become the first people in history to complete this voyage, as well as to create an unprecedented portrait of Brazil through photography, film and story.
We've set them up with some Obi Elite 1P tents and Zor sleeping pads for their trips. Join us in following them on their adventures through facebook and twitter.
