The Cape to Cape Expedition have reached the Bering Strait

 

The members of the Cape to Cape expedition use BASK equipment which they received from BASK Official Distributor in UK.

The Cape to Cape Expedition is an adventure of epic proportions. Steve Burgess and his partners are going to drive a purpose built Land Rover from England to South America across the frozen tundra of Siberia. After getting the Bering Strait the Land Rover will be converting to its amphibious state to cross 56 miles of water.

Steve Burgess, head of the team, said he has never lost his sense of adventure. He explained the idea of the expedition: "It is a big world out there and I want to see as much of it as I can."

Steve said: "The weather is critical being a farmer helps because you are always checking on the weather in this job.

The members of the Cape to Cape expedition use BASK equipment which they received from BASK Official Distributor in UK.

The vehicle for this route has been specially adapted. Travelers have spent about 250,000 transforming their Land Rover into an amphibious vehicle.

The Land Rover, which is registered as a boat, has two floats which are secured on the back when it is on the road. For the drive across the Bering Strait they will be attached to brackets on either side.

The journey started in Mirfield on January 29 and reached Moscow by February 5. Steve and his team spent about 2 months for crossing Central Russia and Siberia and getting Uelen on the Bering Strait on April, 2.

Late May or June 08, in the end of ice melting period in the Bering Sea, Steve together with Dan Evans will return to Uelen and make the crossing of the Bering Strait. It is possible they will be the first to successfully cross the 56-mile Bering Strait between Siberia and Alaska one of the most perilous stretches of sea and ice in the world in a single vehicle.

Steve Burgess and his partner are planning to continue the journey down the coast of Alaska and onwards down to Cape Horn in Chile.
