Thor’s contribution to Danish book on Expedition and Adventure. Den Yderste Grænse.

Den Yderste Grænse, Redaktør: Bjørn Harvig. Gads Forlag Maj 2022.

I had the honour of writing a chapter for this new compilation of spectacular expeditions undertaken by both Danish and international adventurers through the centuries.

My chapter is on the crossing of Cenderawashi Bay during our Circumnavigation of New Guinea, one of the most frightening experiences of my life.

The books title translates: “The furthest border/limit” Editor Bjørn Harvig, published (in Danish only) by Gads Forlag. Available from 25 May 2022.

The Paradox of Consumption – article in WILD Magazine #183

Fact is that the outdoor appeal we consume is damaging the very nature that we love to explore.

Most outdoor media is (partially) funded by outdoor brands through advertisements. Hence critiquing these companies can be a delicate matter, luckily WILD magazine recognised the importance of this issue and printed my article.

If you wish to read my proposed solutions to this paradox (like buying second hand or renting gear) then look for WILD #183 magazine in your Australian newsstand.

Summoned by the Kula Chiefs

Join the Adventures of Justin and Sanakoli and support the traditional cultures of Papua New Guinea.

On the phone to Papua New Guinea, I spoke with Sanakoli John (one of the three master sailors from our New Guinea circumnavigation).

Sanakoli told me that him and his brother Justin John, together with our proud canoe Tawali Pasana, had been summoned to a Kula* meeting by a Chief on Woodlark Island.
