Everest This expedition is regarded as one of the most inspiring and greatest achievements of the 20th century From their success companies have been able to develop equipment to with stand these environments opening the door for future expeditions. Science influences the quest for knowledge and pushes boundaries between theory and whats possible. One of the greatest series of expeditions was inspired and funded through science.... Space Race
1955- 1969 Military Expeditions Divided over 3 teams;
14 Army
6 Royal Navy
4 Royal Air Force
1 Royal Marine Tip of the Iceberg..! Scientific research has played a major role in funding of various expeditions.

This is because modern day expeds are often carried out in remote locations, in return for sponsorship/funding they may offer to collect data or small samples from the trip. UNICEF is the world's largest distributor of vaccines to the developing world, supplying immunisations for more than half the world's children in over 190 countries. Are an ongoing process of work for many companies or charities, such as Comic Relief, Red Cross and UNICEF. In 2011 Ewan McGregor took part in a Vaccination mission supported by UNICEF, to remote villages in Nepal. This journey is called a cold chain, because the vaccines have to be kept cold at all times.

If the needles freeze or get too warm, they become useless. Due to the level of remoteness and uncertainty in these expeditions, they are carried out by seasoned, highly experienced professionals. Borneo Democratic Republic

The aim of the expedition was to Continue with Scott's plans of a South Pole camp, Continue in Polar exploration and Gather research of the fast melting icecap for Polar Science. Words of the Wise... "The Best Journeys Answer Questions, That In The Beginning You Didn't Even Think To Ask".
- Yvon Chouinard (Founder of Black Diamond & Patagonia) Expedition Skills What are the benefits for people who have these skills? Police Force Expeditions UK Police Constabularies use the Duke Of Edinburgh Award for their Trainee officer and Cadet Schemes. Ambulance Service Expeditions Fire Service Expeditions “It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.”
- Sir Edmud Hilary (1st Ascent Mt. Everest 1953) “I determined never to stop until I had come to the end and achieved my purpose.”
- David Livingstone (Found the Source of the River Nile, Africa) “Nobody climbs mountains for scientific reasons. Science is used to raise money for the expeditions, but you really climb for the hell of it.”
- Sir Edmund Hilary (1st Ascent Mt. Everest 1953) Why Do you think they would be useful to the Public Services? Why do the Public Services go on Expeditions.... The Duke Of Edinburgh is a course developed to give young people experience in both the wilderness and community environments. First Aid Navigation Team Building Problem Solving Leadership Communication Volunteering, Physical Fitness, Expedition Planning

Developing practical and social skills.... Time Management Expedition companies often hire Doctors or Nurses to help if people become seriously injured. Mountaineering doctors climbed to the top of Everest in 2009 to take blood in experiments to aid the treatment of critically ill patients. To learn more about the body in extreme situations so new treatments can be developed for patients in intensive care. Treatments for patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), cystic fibrosis, emphysema, septic shock, 'blue baby' syndrome and other critical illnesses." Map of The Four North Poles In temperatures of minus 50 degrees, he will pull his supplies on two specially designed sledges for 685 miles to and from the Arctic Pole - a trip which is expected to take him 70 days. If he is successful, he will heading back to the Arctic later in the year to embark on a 1,000-mile trek to the Magnetic, Geomagnetic and Geographic North Poles.

Maps of the Specific Area Personal Kit - The Essentials Route & Destination Weather Forecast - How Will You Know The weather may well be completely different from the time you have planned the expedition, to the time you carry it out. Land Access Emergency Contacts You should always leave emergency plans and information with people who are separate from the main expedition. flights to another
country? Minibus for large
Team? Walking the
Distance? Cycle Power? Checking long range forecasts or asking local people for advice about "the right time to go" can help. Is the area of the expedition off limits or do you have public right of way? Whether its Base Camp or Mum at home. They need to be contactable at all times for the duration of the Expedition. Equipment Packing the right equipment is an essential part of the expedition planning process. Up Next..... It is always wise to allocate as much time as possible for checking equipment, to ensure that you remember everything you need. Equipment packing takes time - Don't Rush it!! Think about what you need for specifically and stop from that point. Use the activities planned on the expedition to guide you in equipment choice. Layered Clothing Layered clothing is a way of dressing using multiple items that are worn on top of each other. Ideal - Layering System Appropriate Footwear The Backpack Choosing the right pack for your exped, has now been made a lot easier with companies creating endless designs and shapes for your every need. How To Pack A Backpack Creative Backpack Pick An Expedition you would like to take part in Food Supplies Equipment - Known Activities? You may be able to make use of certain items in other ways, or for different activities all together.
(This would save a whole lot of space) This allows for flexible clothing to match the needs of each situation. Two thin layers can be warmer yet lighter than one thick layer, because the air trapped between layers serves as thermal insulation. Outdoor and sports wear manufacturers favor layered clothing because, it allows them to offer specific layers of clothing which are optimised for the particular demands of an activity. Base Layer - Soft Shell (Wind Proof) - Insulation - Hard Shell It is essential that you pack the correct footwear for your adventure.. Whatever the activity look after your Feet..!!

Safety in Expeditions What safety measures do we need when planning an expedition? Safety Requirements Every expedition will encounter hazards, which roughly need to be identified/predicted Beforehand. Environmental hazards e.g. steep terrain, deep water, bad weather, wildlife • Removal of the hazard.
• Increasing the amount or quality of training.
• Modifying the design of the activity or fieldwork task.
• Substituting an alternative exercise, experience or route. Today's Task 1. Clearly understood Layout with pictures/signs

2. A 'safety ethos' recognised by all participants.

3. A set of effective and easily understandable safety procedures applicable to the circumstances of each expedition. World Challenge;
Expedition Support World Challenge Expeditions The main hazards fall under the following headings: Health hazards e.g. endemic disease, AIDS, polluted water, poorly prepared local food. Human & behavioural hazards e.g. temper, violence, robbery, kidnapping and behaviour brought on by fatigue, stress or drugs. Activity hazards e.g. moving on deck under sail, swimming, lead climbing, spontaneous games and competitions. Safety Requirements Safety Requirements Travel and camping hazards e.g. driving, travel on overcrowded public transport, hazards of fire in camp cooking.

We are there to support you and provide you with initial expedition advice right through, from launch of expedition until the team returns home. Jimmy Chins reasons for living this expedition lifestyle was totally against everything he had done so far.. At first his family didn't like the idea of him not using his education, and living out of his car. But once they saw his motivation and level of commitment they were very supportive, and he is now highly successful. Make a list of safety issues that you know of.. Think of your expedition (earlier on in the unit)
