The Long Haul - Lake Baikal
27 FEBRUARY 2019
Mike and renowned explorer Rosie Stancer
will embark on a Double-Solo expedition over
frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia, in support of Veterans Aid
Travelling across this frozen lake, Rosie will set off on 1st March 2019 from the southern point of Lake Baikal and Mike will start from
the northern point three days later. Both Mike and Rosie will be totally self-reliant and facing average temperatures around -35C with dips
below -40C. The aim is to meet midway where they will raise the Veterans Aid
banner before continuing on separate solo journeys to their finishing points.

The route will be approximately 725 kilometres - farther than a straight line between Inverness and London.
Mike and Rosie will be travelling almost a marathon per day for 20 consecutive days whilst pulling sledges
that will be upwards of 60 kilos. The route will be a World First across the lake in support of their
chosen charity Veterans Aid
