Current Adventure

Paddleboard the Nile

The challenge is to paddleboard the longest and most dangerous river in the world, the River Nile, all 4265 miles, from its furthest source in the Nyungwe rainforest in Rwanda, through Tanzania, Uganda, South Sudan, Sudan and finish at the shores of the Mediterranean Sea in Egypt. Live tracking will be made available online, along with updates using satellite technology. It will be an extreme interactive educational adventure, bringing awareness of other cultures, our effect on nature, and, the determination of man. It should take between 7 and 9 months. Experience has taught me, however, that such expeditions can throw you a curveball at any moment!

2007: I began my round-the-world backpacking experiment in Egypt and through Africa, determining whether it was possible to get mobile communications and internet connections anywhere I chose to go.

2010: I found myself in a real survival situation. I survived, but also discovered I didn’t have the skills I thought I had. Since then, I have learned the basic primitive skills needed to survive in extreme conditions. I continue to hone and extend my skill-set, with the goal of thriving in the wild, and, coming out on the other side.

2012: Hiked 5 weeks following the Way of St James (Camino de Santiago).

2014: Set off from Southampton on the 6th March and trekked 6,600 miles, 14 million footsteps, following Britain’s coastline as close to the water’s edge as possible, wild camping and using my packraft. I finished 17 months later.

2015: In November, I attempted a training exercise to paddleboard the length of Britain’s longest river, the mighty Thames. Mother Nature won.

Spring 2016 I had another crack at the Thames, this time I owned it :)

Extreme activities Adam is proficient in are …... Scuba Diving, Rock Climbing and Abseiling, Long Distance Hiking, Wild Camping, Primitive Survival Skills, Snowboarding, Canoeing and Kayaking and …….Paddleboarding.

Very recently I published my first book, “It was all going fine...until I met Kate!”. Kate refers to the hurricane we had back in November and how she ruined one of my training exercises. I am also finishing off the manuscript for my book about my mammoth coastal walk. This, I hope to have published in the next couple of months.
