“In a day of so many journeys to the Poles and summits of Mount Everest, what these lads have undertaken in the form of Expedition5 is a truly unique world first.
They will battle some of the toughest environments on earth including unexplored jungles, deserts and polar environments, with absolutely no support.
To cross the five largest island on earth using only human power will push these blokes to the edge and I wish them the absolute best of luck”.
