EP Team heading to Brazil
The Epicocity Project kicked off their Brazil Expedition today.
The crew has joined up with a team of scientists to descend the remote River of Doubt in southwestern Brazil. Their mission: catch some of the huge fish that Teddy Roosevelt first described during his exploration of this Amazon tributary in 1914. The EP team is following Roosevelt’s course and are the first people to descend the river in more than a decade.
Unlike Teddy’s expedition, you can follow the Epicocity Project live on their 10-day descent of this remote jungle river via SPOT satellite tracking, and read along as they send daily tweets from their satellite phone.
Track the team’s progress on Expedition Live and follow them on Twitter.
