I wish to thank the following major company sponsors, without their support and encouragement, I still might be dreaming!
I would also like to thank all the people who have been so generous enough to give me donations, through purchasing tee-shirts, sockmonkeys, Amidst Journeys products or just plain cold hard cash. With this money I was able to purchase a new camera and computer before I left Australia. Anything you contribute to me while I’m travelling, goes towards motorcycle maintenance / repairs and day to day expenses.

In 2010 Sea to Summit proudly celebrates our 20th anniversary with a heritage tracing back to the expedition undertaken by Tim Macartney-Snape in 1990. After having already reached the summit of Mt Everest in 1984, Tim decided to return. In the spring of 1990 Tim had a swim in the tepid waters of India’s Bay of Bengal then set off on foot toward the distant Himalayan foothills. Four months later, after climbing alone from Base Camp and without the assistance of oxygen, he set foot once again on the highest point on earth. This expedition is now known world-wide as nothing short of remarkable and was the beginning of our company ‘Sea to Summit’. Today Sea to Summit product is distributed internationally to over 35 countries and our reputation is well established due to our award winning product innovations, quality and range.
