The Earth Expedition: Walking around the world in 7 years

leave a comment »

I just got off the phone with Daren Wendell. “Who is Daren?” you may ask.

Daren is a guy who tomorrow morning at 10:30am eastern time is taking off on a 7 year hike around the world. He is embarking on The Earth Expedition which will take him across 3 continents, through 14 different countries and 11 different languages.

“Why???” tends to be the response to such a feat. He’s promoting awareness for Blood:Water Mission an organization committed to providing clean water and clean blood to fight the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa.

You can follow Daren and The Earth Expedition by way of live GPS tracker, available on the website. And if you are anywhere close to his route, you can join in on the expedition for a few days. He’s a cool guy and what he is doing is pretty impressive, I give him a “hats off” and happy travels.
