Walking the Amazon – Ed Stafford at the Night of Adventure

Ed Stafford is the first man in history to walk the length of the Amazon river.
His expedition is, rightly, feted and lauded at the moment.
So I was really grateful when he agreed to speak at the London Night of Adventure.

Get a glimpse into this epic achievement through this short talk:

  1. 7 minutes can never do this justice. What a stupid format for an incredible journey!

  2. May be the first person to walk it but someone did swim it! (With a support boat.) I guess some of you also heard of Martin Strel as well
    Maybe they could both go back and have a race 🙂
    Maybe Al could join in and make it a kind of triathlon.

  3. A few weeks ago I went for a walk in a very thick wood about a mile long just to see what it was like. After battling through the twigs and trees with about a hundred scratches for about 20 minutes I finally came out the other side. Except strangely I didn’t and actually came out at a point about twenty metres from where I entered. So I better not try and copy this guy’s trip. It might not go well.

  4. Come on Al, I bet no-one has ever been lunatic enough to cycle the entire length of the amazon. You’ve already got one of those folding bikes and it can’t be that hard to carry in 40 degree heat and high humidity through thick rainforest so that’s your next trip sorted.
