With a complete lack of communications in the midst of a highly cyber regulated region we could not post any updates whilst in China. However now that I have returned I can safely broadcast to the world that the Silk Road Pirates championed the mighty Taklamakan Desert!
Over a period of two weeks we managed to cross the desert from South to North, with absolutely no support crews and most importantly no camels! At times we were each carrying in excess of 30kg's on our backs through soft sand for over 30km's a day. Times were tough, we got tight on water, food and endurance but we made it. We're still collating and producing all the footage to preview a teaser to the world, but for now here a cheeky sneakpeak of what we went through!
