Today, two friends of mine will be flying to Oman to undertake an almighty expedition. Starting in Salalah and finishing in the UAE, Leon McCarron and Alastair Humphreys will drag a huge cart laden with a couple of hundred litres of water, 1000 miles across the Empty Quarter desert.
I remember Al telling me about his plans for this expedition several years ago so, although more than a little jealous, I am thrilled that he’s finally on his way.
Watch their teaser video below or read more about the expedition on Al’s website.
Good luck boys!
