For 114 days, Pasquale Scaturro and Gordon Brown faced seemingly insurmountable challenges as they made their way along all 3,260 miles of the river to become the first in history to complete a full descent of the Blue Nile from source to sea. The expedition spawned the popular IMAX film as well as a book, both titled Mystery of the Nile...Read More»
In the early morning hours of May 25, 2001 history was made when the National Federation of the Blind 2001 Everest Expedition stood on the top of the world. This team of climbers, led by Pasquale Scaturro, included Eric Alexander, Sherman Bull and his son Brad, Luis Benitez, Mike Brown, Jeff Evans, Steve Gipe, Didrik Johnck, Charlie Mace, Chris Morris, Mike O'Donnell, and blind climber Erik Weihenmayer. Not only did Weihenmayer reach the summit, but also the oldest climber to summit (Sherman Bull), and the largest team summiting with 19 of 21 members.

“There is no way to put what Erik has done in perspective because no one has ever done anything like it. It is a unique achievement, one that in the truest sense pushes the limits of what man is capable of.”

"OK, EVERYBODY, LISTEN UP!" Scaturro barked in a booming, gravelly voice. He was standing by the bow of his gray Avon Pro raft, dressed in a clean khaki field shirt, shorts, and flip-flops, about to deliver his morning pep talk. It was around 10 a.m. on the eighth day of the trip, in late 2006, and we were about to shove off from the previous night's camp, a narrow, terraced beach that crowded into the Omo's tangled riverine forest. Across the water, a troop of nervous baboons clambered on a cliff face festooned with tropical greenery. We were coming down out of the mountains here, some 160 river miles below our put-in, and Scaturro was worried about falling behind schedule..."

.....Well, not quite. The Siberian Gulag is long gone, a relic of the Soviet prison camp system, but for most of the last three months, I've been on a geophysical work assignment in a remote area of the Khanti Mansi Okrug in western Siberia, an area so big that it dwarfs virtually every American state and is inhabited entirely by natives of the Khanti Tribe....and a few hundred thousand oil workers. This is that “other part” of my life that is not often noticed. I usually spend much of my time on the road, either on river, mountain or flying expeditions; however, intertwined between these big “geographic” adventures and expeditions, I spend much of my working life in the wilds of the world, places so far out there and foreign to most of us that it’s tough to describe. It is my life as an international exploration geophysicist that started it all .........Read More»

Areas west of the Omo River, close to the border with Sudan, are inhabited by the Suri and Nyongatom ethnic groups, and exploration there has inspired plans for future expeditions into this isolated section of south west EthiopiaRead More»
