Cambridge Trans-American Expedition

Fifty-five years ago three young men formed the Cambridge Trans-American Expedition and set out to complete the first ever overland expedition from Ushuaia, Argentina to the Arctic Circle in Alaska. 

Yesterday marks the day that the group of adventures set out to finish the last 200 miles of the journey they ended just shy of finishing in 1960. And in the original Land Rover they used, no less! 

Ellis Canvas Tents in honored to be included as a small part of their amazing journey by supplying them with our 8x10 Torrent Tent, our 10x10 Prairie Tent, and 4 Zippered Cavalry Bedrolls

We can't wait to hear more about their incredible expedition as they get closer and closer to the Arctic Circle! Good luck lads, hope those tents are keeping your heads dry!
