We understand that you may have questions about our route, the challenges we will face, and how we plan to overcome them. That's why we've put together this FAQ page to address some of the most common questions we receive.
From charging our car in the Polar Regions to sleeping arrangements during the expedition, we've got you covered. Read on to learn more about our ambitious mission and how you can follow our progress along the way.
Where is the start line for the Pole to Pole expedition?
The start line for the Pole to Pole expedition is located in the Arctic, at the 1823 Magnetic North Pole chosen for its accessibility. By beginning our expedition at an accessible magnetic North location, we can better manage logistical challenges and help ensure the safety of our team members throughout the journey.
Why are you fundraising for the Pole to Pole expedition?
Our expedition costs aren’t fully covered. We are fundraising to cover the expedition's practical costs, including the Antarctica leg. Your support helps us raise awareness and inspire others to tackle seemingly impossible challenges.
Why is the Pole to Pole expedition not zero emissions?
Achieving a zero-emissions expedition is currently nearly impossible due to the lack of necessary infrastructure worldwide. Our journey aims to minimise our environmental impact, but the available technology and support systems have not yet advanced to the point of enabling a completely carbon-neutral expedition.
How will you charge your car in the Polar Regions?
We've got an innovative solution in the works! Our team has partnered with experts to design a portable wind and solar charging trailer that will generate and store renewable energy to power our Expedition Nissan Ariya in the harsh Polar Regions.
How will you cross the dangerous Darien Gap?
Our safety is our top priority, which is why we won't be driving our car through the treacherous Darien Gap. Instead, we'll be taking a boat service to transport our vehicle from Panama to Columbia.
What is the range of your car?
We're still testing the limits of our modified Expedition Nissan Ariya, but we'll share the range with you as soon as we have the results. Right now, Chris is doing a 3000-mile range test across Canada, so stay tuned!
What are your sleeping arrangements during the expedition?
We're ready for any adventure! Depending on the region, we'll either be camping in a tent directly on the sea ice or sleeping inside the vehicle. In the Americas, the car will serve as our hotel, stopping at campsites and renewable energy sites along the way. We'll also stay at motels or hotels as needed.
How can we follow your journey?
We'd love for you to be a part of our expedition! You can track our progress on our social media channels below.
