The Long Haul Expedition - Lake Baikal Siberia
THE LONG HAUL Rosie and Mike Laird announce their planned expedition to walk and ski 725k across frozen Lake Baikal in Eastern Russia – to set a new record and in support of UK ex-service charity Veterans Aid.
"We are doing a ‘double solo’ – setting out from opposite ends of the world’s largest, oldest and deepest fresh water lake, crossing paths at the halfway point. It will be done in the spirit of adventure – and we will be taking the ‘Veterans Aid’ banner that will be raised to publicise the work of the charity we both admire.
