Another big year of adventures planned for Chaz Powell

2018 is sure to be another fantastic year full of adventures for our inspiring ambassador, Chaz Powell, and by the end of this blog post, you will understand why.

 

After the completion of my 2016/17 source to sea Zambezi journey by foot. I have decided to turn my focus onto 2018 and a whole fresh new year of adventure and challenges.
I decided to kick off my year by walking from Birmingham to London via the Grand Union canal whilst wild camping and learning in depth about the unique history of the British waterways, as well as embracing the beautiful surrounding countryside and urban suburbs that this 130-mile route takes. On reaching London I then delivered a talk at Tuesday evenings Tales of Adventure. It went extremely well and was a truly fantastic beginning to what is set to be an eventful year.

Leading and Teaching

Within the next few months when the new UK summer season begins. I  will be back teaching Bushcraft in various forested regions throughout the UK. Both with the Bushcraft Company and with my own group - Wildest Journeys.

 

During March, I will be leading an Outlook Expedition team to the Jebel Sahro mountains in Morocco. We will spend a total of 8 days in the country, with four of the days trekking through the Jebel Sahro mountain range.

 

Then from June until early August, I will be leading 2 youth expeditions with Outlook Expeditions.  One in Malawi and the other in Zambia and Botswana. It's always very rewarding being able to pass on the skills and knowledge that I pick up from my many personal adventures over the years, especially when leading groups in various parts of their expedition phases that incorporate the regions surrounding the Zambezi river.
As well as leading and teaching. I will be visiting various schools to go through the exciting options for their chosen destination, and helping students plan their own unique summer expeditions.

Personal Journeys

During mid to late August, I will be taking on a personal expedition in Zambia. The plan will be to retrace the final footsteps of Dr David Livingstone, to learn all about his final movements. My journey will then finish at his final resting place in Chitambo village at Ilala near the edge of the Bangweulu Swamps in Zambia. This adventure will be wild yet exciting and will see me trekking yet again through another very remote region within Zambia.

 

I also have plans for various smaller personal expeditions during 2018 both in the UK and throughout Europe, these will all be announced spontaneously just before they happen, and will go towards my goal of training for my International Mountain Leader Award. As was as pushing myself to tackle incredible life-changing journeys and experiences.

2018 is also a hugely important year to plan another big journey in 2019 for Chaz.                          Photo Credit: Frazer Waller.
2018 is also a hugely important year to plan another big journey for 2019. The expedition will see myself and a small team walking in an extremely wild part of Sub Saharan Africa for around 6 months, whilst aiming to cover in excess of 2000 miles. This is sure to be a very exciting endeavour and will be a unique worlds first expedition pushing our physical and mental boundaries to the limit.

 

This expedition is due to be announced later on in the year once the team is in place and all details have been ironed out. With exciting projects for the year ahead. I’m planning to do various talks during 2018. With speaking engagements lined up throughout the year with the likes of the Royal Geographical Society and Explorers Connect. I look forward to sharing my stories about my many past explorations and hopefully inspiring others to take on their own incredible life-changing journeys.

 

It’s sure to be a great year indeed!

 

We can't wait to hear more about these expeditions and exciting projects ahead for Chaz Powell. All we know is that Water-to-Go will be with him every step of the way keeping him safe and hydrated wherever he is.
