In July 2005, two young Aussies Chris Bray and Clark Carter plunged inside the Arctic Circle to travel unsupported across Victoria Island, the world’s ninth largest and largely unexplored island. After 58 days of hauling, paddling and dragging 250kgs of gear behind them in their home-made aluminium kayaks with fold-down wheels, they were only 1/3 the way across! It was such an incredible adventure though – including wolves, polar bears, artefacts, blizzards and unseen landscapes – that they vowed to return. After two years of thought, The iiNet 1000 Hour Day Expedition is shaping up for May 2008.
