The Mad Way South adventure was initiated by Geoff Wilson, a Veterinary Surgeon and adventure junkie from the Gold Coast Australia. With the help of New Zealand kite manufacturer Craig Hansen, they formed a team of Adventurers and support crew that could ultimately make this “thought in the night” become a reality. In the process they would be attempting 3 World records, including the main goal of crossing the Sahara Dessert by Wind Power.
Geoff Wilson and his wife Sarah wanted the adventure to have meaning, of course the world record attempt was a formidable goal, but to do this for a cause would give the adventurers that extra motivation when the chips were down. Geoff and Sarah decided to support the She Rescue Home of Cambodia. Money raised on the trip has been donated to this worthy cause – sherescuehome.org
