High Altitude Truck Expedition

Two trucks, two wounded veterans, one world record attempt: Paul is about to embark on an expedition in Chile to set a new world altitude record.


Together with expedition leader Matthias Jeschke, and fellow Wounded serviceman Chris Bailey we will attempt to reach the highest point on Earth for wheeled vehicles. This will be on Chile‘s Ojos del Salado mountain.


Paul and Chris are military veterans who have faced serious obstacles in life and have successfully overcome them. They are now tackling this new challenge with the same energy and determination. Unforgiving terrain and tough climate conditions await them on their way to surpassing a high point of at least 6,690 m. A bold adventure which will take both man and machine to their limits with thin air and temperatures down to -30.


The expedition is all about capability, it will highlight the capability of the Rheinmetall vehicles but also that of wounded Veterans. “We are not limited by our injuries be it physical or psychological.” The veteran community needs strong leadership in Australia to combat our unfortunate depression and suicide epidemic and Paul will lead from the front to achieve this goal.

Paul was blown up by an IED on deployment in Afghanistan in 2009 resulting in a right above knee amputation but even worse, a mate to many Ben Ranaudo was killed instantly. This event has taken a severe toll, not only on Paul but many members of the unit. This is only 1 example of what many members of the Australian Defence Force have faced as they have deployed throughout the Middle East.


With this is mind Paul has chosen The Bravery Trust as his charity of choice for this event. The Bravery Trust provides financial assistance to Military personnel in need.

“The last thing a recovering Veteran and their family should have to worry about is financial stress, focus should be on rehab, recovery and reintegrating back into the community to eventual meaningful employment, this is where we get our sense of purpose and self worth.”     

“To this end I would hope that you would take the time to look at the links and donate any amount so we can support the Servicemen/women and their families who have sacrificed so much for our country.”

Exited to be starting this journey today with 2 weeks acclimatization. I couldn't do this without the support of my wife Dee Warren and my family.
