" A colourful character born with that compulsion to do something crazy, something INCREDIBLE "

Alec Baldwin

" They spoke of their adventure with a great balance of facts, emotion and humour, and most importantly, they linked in very well with our conference themes of planning and team-work. "

Foster's Group

" It’s more than a tale about two mates and their passion for adventure. It’s a story about mindset; the influence of positive thinking. It’s a story about planning; a well thought out approach. It’s a story about what to do when things don’t go your way; risk taking and risk mitigation. It’s a story about motivation, sheer grit and determination; a genuine desire to never give up no matter what. But most of all it’s a celebration of success: a wonderful journey with one of the finest young Australians you and your business partners will ever meet "

ING Direct

" An incredible feat of endurance that is a testament that surviving hell is all about heart, grit, humour and friendship. "
