PBP Episode 42 - Walking the Amazon

PBP Episode 42 - Walking the Amazon

Quote:
This episode features my interview with former British Army Captain Ed Stafford. Ed is in the midst of an expedition of a lifetime - backpacking the entire length of the Amazon River.

Driving himself through constant obstacles and denying fear's hold on him, Ed's spending over 2 years trekking thousands of miles of dense jungles, wading chest-deep swamps, and experiencing interesting encounters with various insects, reptiles, fish, indigenous tribes, and more.

What drives him to do this? What gear does he use? How dangerous is this expedition? Listen in for answers to these and other probing questions.

I may have just missed this part since I listen while I'm working, but did he mention anything about how he acquires and purifies his water?

He may have mentioned something. It was one of my questions, but it may not have been asked or perhaps it ended up on the 'cutting room floor.' I don't recall - it was weeks ago when we last talked.

I was just talking about this water issue the other day with another PBF member. I knew someone would ask.

The good news is that the water treatment issue really isn't as selective as a particular gear choice (e.g. pack, stove...). That is, the ways to treat water are quite definitive -- e.g. a halogen, boiling...
