Well today for my book promotion I flew up to Brisbane and back just for a 1 hour interview with well known ABC Radio National interviewer Richard Fidler for his wonderful 'Conversations with Richard Fidler' program which was just awesome! Instead of the usual rushed interview where there's only time for the usual 'getting chased by wolves' story, here we got to have a good old chat about all sorts of details about Clark and my 1000 Hour Day expedition.
You can download the whole interview or...READ MORE >>

THE BOOK and setting off for our next expeditions! [22nd Jul 10] Comments (12)
Astoundingly, a full year has almost passed since our last update, and with so much going on, Clark and I thought it was about time to fill you all in:
As mentioned last year: "My partner Jess and I have just got a little 29-foot junk-rig yacht over in Halifax, on Canada's east coast, and we've re-named it 'Teleport' and are now saving hard to fly over there and start sailing her home, via the Northwest Passage, Alaska, Siberia, Kamchatka etc.." Well – guess what? Jess and I ...READ MORE >>
The latest news & upcoming charity paddle [20th Aug 09] Comments (11)
Well it's been just over a year now since we 'got to the far side', so I wanted to send out a quick update to let you know what we've been up to.
So we came back, did a lecture tour and things like that, and then life settled down to normality again:
For me, that involved cycling around Tasmania with my girlfriend, then heading down to Antarctica on a cruise ship as part of their 'Expedition Team' and official, returning then to keep planning towards what was to be my 'next big expeditio...READ MORE >>
So since returning home from the arctic and finishing up our Aussie lecture tour, Clark and I have been pretty busy, including one thing that I'd really like your help with!
Clark, as you can see HERE, has re-done his website www.ClarkCarter.com, which now features his upcoming attempt to row solo across the Indian Ocean in 2011 (He and housemate Ryan Storey were going to be rowing it t...READ MORE >>
Australian Geographic Spirit of Adventure Award [27th Oct 08] Comments (7)
Clark Carter and I were recently presented with the Australian Geographic Society's 'Spirit of Adventure' award at a function in Sydney. It was a great evening, good to catch up with many of the Aussie adventurers all in one room. As I said in my 'thanks' speech, I think that Aust Geo deserves the medal really though, for it is AG that keeps the spirit of adventure alive in so many Australians. Goon on you Aust Geo, and thanks!...READ MORE >>
Australian Lecture Tour!
In May, Chris Bray (then 24) and Clark Carter (then 23), both from Sydney, began hauling, paddling and dragging 500kgs of equipment and supplies behind them in unique carts they designed and built themselves. Their mission: to cross 700kms of snow, frozen lakes, mud plains, boulder fields, tundra, endless jagged ice, shattered rock and even rapids.
Their remarkable journey is a world first, with the duo passing through regions that have likely never before been s...READ MORE >>
Clark and I are safe and sound, back home at last in sunny Australia. From where I sit I can see the sparkling blue ocean waves furling onto the golden sands of Palm Beach, and feel the sun literally burning warmth into my skin, soothed by a gently cooling sea-breeze. The sound of my watch alarm didn't strike dread into me this morning, and I had no need to try and pretend I didn't hear it and lay still to avoid hauling. Im not saying I leapt out of bed – on the contrary - I simply rolled over, ...READ MORE >>

Finished: 70 DAYS!
What it's all about
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 prep, The iiNet 1000 Hour Day Expedition set of in 2008, and finished what they started.
