I recently did an interview for a website called CheapTents - in the last couple of weeks they've been doing great series with some fine folks in the adventuring world (see Andrew Skurla's here and Al Humphrey's here.)
To read mine, mainly focusing on my upcoming trek from Mongolia to Hong Kong, check it out by following this link
First off, a quick update on our progress. Rob and I have been working hard over the last few weeks to finalise our choice of gear for this expedition. The equipment we use is obviously vitally important, and could be the difference between success and failure on this journey, and we are delighted that some excellent companies are coming on board to supply us with top-rate gear - keep an eye out on this blog for announcements of our major providers very soon.
Note from Rob and Leon: This is a guest post by the Lawlor Clinic on the technical side of preparing our bodies for the walking and kayaking, for which we are most grateful. A post about our physio sponsor in Hong Kong, Sports Performance, will be coming soon.
On talking with Leon about the expedition, it became apparent that physical preparedness was essential in the successful completion of the expedition as their bodies will be subject to extreme conditions and made to endure many hours of physical activity.
Physical preparedness is something that we advise regularly to all our clients regardless of their level of physical activity. Our bodies have to move efficiently to avoid injury during activities of daily living.
