The Turner Twins Expedition: The Green Pole

Posted on October 10th, 2017

Hugo and Ross Turner are two brothers who have set out to achieve world first expeditions combining medical research and distinctive studies of historic expeditions.

Their missions are a platform used to create awareness and raise vital funds for charities, (such as Wings for Life), brand partners and sponsors.

The Twins set out to reach the second pole of inaccessibility located in the heart of Brazil. And have succeeded! They are now making their way back to Arica, Chile.

The journey in total is set to take over 8 weeks and cross over 2,500kms undergoing diverse environments and weather conditions. Read more about The Green Pole Here.

The Turner Twins contacted Terra Nova Equipment for some trustworthy, lightweight and protective gear to use on their current expedition.

We provided the twins with a Wild Country Blizzard 3 tent to protect them against the many elements of The Green Pole. Along with 2x Elite 550 Sleeping Bags for a comfortable and warm night’s sleep.

This is not the first time The Turner Twins have experienced Terra Nova products, the boys first used Terra Nova Equipment in their early teens when they took part in the Ten Tors hiking challenge. The challenge is organised by the British Army covering 33, 45 and 55 miles across Dartmoor.

“We used the Quasar tents for their lightweight, rigid and easy assemble. From these first adventures to our latest expeditions, Terra Nova is a manufacturer we know will deliver performance and offer us protection against the elements. It’s great to be sleeping in a Terra Nova again (our home from home)!”

We will be posting updates of The Turner Twins journey throughout their trip and catch up with them once they have returned home to see how they got on.
