Resolve This: 30,000 Miles by Wheelchair [adventure journal]

Last month, at the Royal Geographical Society’s Explore weekend in London, I was quietly sipping on a cup of Earl Grey on the Sunday morning, nursing a small hangover, when I was introduced to a chap called Andy Campbell. Well, blow me down, I nearly choked on my tea when Andy told me what he was setting off to do in 2012.
Tell me, in a nutshell, what you’re embarking on in 2012?
I’m setting off from the UK to travel 30,000 miles around the world in a wheelchair and raise £1m for charity. The world isn’t really designed for wheelchairs, though, so I’ll be using whatever arm-powered transport I need to keep going and complete a continuous route from the UK to China and then from Alaska to Chile.
