Our expedition to find the Lost City of Gold

Ok so watching the movies just isn't enough for me. I had a go at making my own Indiana Jones movie (Treasure of the Templars) and now I have to actually have a go at being Indiana Jones for real to satisfy that deep yearning for adventure inside of me.

In less than a month me and a several friends will be leaving the UK for the jungles of Peru in search of the lost Incan city of Paititi. We have taken advice from famous explorers such as John Blashford Snell and Gregory Deyermenjian and have identified a region we wish to target to try to locate the ruins.

As part of the experience we are also filming a documentary about our experiences which we hope to release upon completion.

I'd like to invite you all to follow us on facebook and twitter - our plan is to update live from the jungle by use of Satellite phone to keep everyone up to date on the latest developments on the ground.

There is also are website giving a bit more information on the project and soon to be updated with video blogs, updates and photographs, etc.

Hope its something you guys find interesting. We're definitely pretty excited about it. I'll be sure to bring my fedora!

There is still time if anyone wants to be involved - but remember it is a serious expedition that will be physically demanding and not without risk. Serious offers will be considered.

There are actually quite a few big Indy fans which I'm friends with at the Morgan. But non of them are on here. I'll spread the word to them.
