Ash Dykes - Latest News

Send-off of the decade, for the expedition of the decade

Posted in: Latest News
23rd June 2018 saw the official Chinese launch of Mission Yangtze; the third, and biggest 'world first' expedition hoping to be achieved by Ash Dykes, the Welsh / British extreme adventurer. Guests flew in from around the world to witness and be part of a fantastic party which sailed down the Bund in Shanghai on an incredible luxurious mississippi river boat.
The occasion was organised by Health and Happiness and filled with lots of support and best wishes for what will become Ash Dykes' biggest, most daring and most interactive wild expedition to date.
 
Towards the end of this month (July 18), Ash will begin something no other human being has ever been recorded to complete; walking from the Yangtze river’s source in the melt waters of the Jianggendiru Glacier on the Tibetan Plateau to its delta near Shanghai. The length of the river spans a whopping 6,450 km, and Ash will complete all of this on foot, facing a multitude of natural and wild dangers along the way.
 
Throughout the evening of the launch party, Ash fascinated all the guests with a riveting insight into his upcoming adventure. Ash also shared his own development and mind-building techniques which will ultimately be the hidden success of his expedition.
 
Ash is incredibly excited to be going in to Mission Yangtze across 2018/19 with solid partners on board. Not only his social media, development and logistic teams, but also his commercial partners; which can be found here.
 
One of Ash's commercial partners at the event was 'Water-to-Go'.
Water-to-Go has not only sponsored and provided dirty water filtration to thousands of vulnerable children and adults around the world, but they are also providing Ash with their leading scientific water bottles and filtration technology which will provide Ash with access to safe, clean water filtered straight out of the Yangtze itself.
 
One of the primary goals and why Ash loves our planet and what it has to offer so much; is the appreciation for everything the wild has to offer. Our planet, and its natural wonders need to be protected; and whatever Ash can do in order to help with filtering clean water for locals to drink or aiding in the awareness of cleaning the world’s oceans and rivers from plastic and other pollutants can only be a good thing for Ash.
 
During this mission launch party; Ash was also privilidged to be able to launch his book 'Mission Possible' freshly translated into Mandarin. Ash has a highly engaged audience in China and being able to share his incredible feats and experiences in their language was a fantastic achievement for him.

2018年6月23日,Water-to-Go(英国)官方合作伙伴贺荷(上海)环境科技有限公司,为其品牌形象代言人来自英国的冒险家阿什戴克斯举办了一个隆重的“欢送晚会”,至此揭开了其“2018长江之行”的序幕。来自世界各地的宾客们见证了这个激动人心的时刻,当晚宾客们也充分展示了其对该活动的全力支持。
 
七月份,极限冒险家阿什戴克斯将尝试他生涯中最伟大的探险,他将会从西藏高原的长江正源姜根迪如冰川出发一路直到在上海靠近东海的区域结束整个探险之旅。2018年7月20日左右,他将在长江源头开启他的旅程,并将徒步完成整个6450公里的行程。
 
整个晚上,阿什给宾客们生动讲解了他即将到来的冒险以及他所期望的路线。他强调了在进入荒野之前做好必要准备的重要性。
 
其中一个最重要的问题是如何获得安全、干净的水——这就是为什么阿什强烈推荐其探险时随行必备的“Water-to-Go好水行”过滤水杯的主要原因。
 
阿什选择“Water-to-Go好水行”过滤水杯的另一个原因是他的此次长江之还蕴藏了对环境保护的主题。使用每一个过滤器,就可以减少多达400个半升装的塑料瓶垃圾。
 
当阿什在讲述他的各种冒险经历时,宾客们都被迷住了,听得津津有味。他讲到了他在越南,缅甸,蒙古和马达加斯加穿越高山等等许多故事。而就在同一天,阿什很高兴地宣布了他的第一本书《挑战不可能》正式发行。
 
也请大家关注阿什戴克斯即将开启的冒险之旅。
