Thanks for visiting our Just Giving page and joining in on our Double-Solo expedition over frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia. Rosie will be starting 1st March from the most southern point of the lake and Mike from the north three days later. We will be totally self reliant and facing average temperatures around -35C with dips below -40C. We aim to meet midway and will raise the VA banner before continuing on our separate solo journeys to our finish points.
Our route will be approximately 725 kilometers long. Farther than a straight line between Inverness and London. We will be travelling almost a marathon per day for 20 consecutive days whilst pulling sledges that will be upwards of 60 kilos. Our route will be a World First across the lake and having your support will make a world of difference to us and to Veterans Aid.
But we also want to make it count for something, which is why we are literally 'flying the flag' for Veterans Aid and making it a fundraiser for a charity that we both admire.
