What an incredible 13 year voyage, human-powered, around the world.

Jason set off  in July of 18994 from Canary Warf  at the age of 26 and returned at the age of 40. His human powered journey around the world he clocked 46,505 miles over 4,833 days as logged by his GPS.

His adventure took him around the world via a 26 ft pedal boat, roller blades, kayaks and bicycles.

His journey was full of adventures that spanned the gamut form  confronting robbers, being arrested. He even had to deal with crocodiles and pirates, not to mention various authorities around the world who were not up to speed with his quest.

Jason fulfilled the rules of a true circumnavigation by starting and finishing at the same point, reaching two places diametrically opposite each other on the globe, crossing the equator and crossing all longitudes. His GPS equipment logged the total distance of 46,505 miles – more than the direct routes of each leg.

He began the trip with university friend Steve Smith, who later pulled out. The pair set the world record for the first east-west crossing of the Atlantic by a pedal-powered boat.

Jason made the first solo crossing of the US on inline skates and the first pedal-powered crossing of the Pacific Ocean, which took 178 days. His funding came from sponsors and odd jobs, including driving cattle in Colorado.
