Michael founded Expedition Outreach in 1995 with his wife Serenity. Since then the EO team have been travelling the world and climbing new mountains, breaking Guinness Book World Records and exploring new places- all for a worthy cause. The team uses the publicity from these expeditions and focuses it on charitable causes and organisations. For more information of the team’s charitable work, check out their website.

The next expedition for EO will be to Iceland in August of this year, where the team will be focused on climbing several Icelandic mountains and doing a face-first luge run down a local peak.  Ice cave diving and a marathon run are also on the cards.

As part of the training for this expedition, Michael has been climbing the White Mountains of New Hampshire. When on these treks, he particularly likes to use his Hillsound Trail Crampon PROs and stretch gaiters. The designs of these, he says, are extremely well thought out, light weight & durable. Later this year Michael will put our products to the ultimate test in the challenging Icelandic conditions. We will make sure to bring you updates on the Expedition Outreach adventures in the coming months. Stay tuned!
