Mission Antarctica

Mission Antarctica is just a small part of my personal challenge to complete the Explorers Grand Slam and summit Mt Vinson.

The Explorers Grand Slam is an adventurer goal to reach the North Pole and South Pole and as well as climb all Seven Summits.
- The Seven Summits - the highest peak in each of the 7 continents of the world: Mt. Everest (Asia),  Aconcagua (South America),  Denali (North America),  Kilimanjaro (Africa),  Elbrus (Europe),  Vinson (Antarctica) and Kosciuszko (Australia).

Due to the high costs of these 2 expeditions which includes the assistance of a guiding company (which organised permits, team, guides, food, etc)
$60-70k USD. Ski the last degree and
$40-50k USD. Climb Mt Vinson 
Combined looking at about 100k+ AUD
Your kind donations will help me with what is needed to complete these expeditions and help me reach my personal goal. 
The plan is to Start this expedition Dec 2021, leaving me enough time to plan out and prepare myself physically, mentally and financially.

In doing this challenge and my upcoming expeditions, I wish to help where I can in the smaller communities I will be coming across, leave a positive impact on everyone I meet and those around me to get up and get going into living a more kinetic lifestyle. I like to encourage people with something as simple as taking the stairs over the escalator/lift or just going for a nice walk instead of watching TV.
It’s so simple yet so effective.


My Upcoming Expeditions for next year are:
Aconcagua (South America – 6,962m) Jan 2020
Kosciuszko (Australia - 2,228m) March 2020
Kilimanjaro (Tanzania - 5,895m) Second half of 2020
