Motcombe Explorer John Blashford-Snell On 2022 Expeditions And His Toughest Challenge

Motcombe explorer Col John Blashford-Snell CBE has been unable to make his Scientific Exploration Society aid trips to Mongolia and Bolivia this year because of covid-19 disruption.

Several Shaftesbury area residents will join John on the re-scheduled expeditions in 2022. John tells us how his volunteers will help these remote communities next year.

2022 will also be the 50th anniversary of John’s toughest adventure. In 1972, he travelled across North and South America, crossing the infamous Darien Gap. John tells us why this mission was so challenging.
