‘Pushing the Limits’ are the recipients of this year's Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and Land Rover ‘Go Beyond Bursary’.
Led by disabled adventurer Andy Campbell, the three-man team will be travelling from the Royal Geographical Society, London, to The Black Sea.
Their aim is to widen our understanding and enjoyment of the geography on our doorstep. The team will demonstrate that the exploration of a diversity of landscapes is within everyone’s reach, whatever their ability.
Beginning their journey in June 2012, they will travel through Europe following the route of the River Danube and finish in early September 2012. Using a wide range of equipment – including off-road wheelchair, handcycle, kayak and paraglider - and accessing remote off-road areas with the Land Rover Defender 110, the team will explore the river and surroundings by water, land and air.
Sharing the journey from the field and interacting with their followers through a range of social media, the team will create interest in their expedition and actively encourage suggestions for ‘detours’ and visits along the route and will be posting regular photos, blogs and video of the expedition. Follow the Pushing the Limits team through @PTL2012 on Twitter.
