In 2018 Colono Brady became the first person ever to cross the Antarctic continent alone, unsupported and completely human power.
Now he's trading his skis for orders, all right assed part of an elite team attempting to become the first people in history to Rome, from South America to Antarctica through 600 miles of the most treacherous and unpredictable waters on the planet Drake Passage.
Believe something we all have inside of us, which is these reservoirs of untapped potential to achieve extraordinary things.
Set the world record for the Explorers Grand Slam, which is to climb the tallest mountain on each of the seven continents, as well as complete expeditions to both the North Pole and the South Pole.
So I climbed the tallest mountain in each of the 50 U.
S States in just 21 days, became the first person across Antarctica solo, unsupportive donated.
There's a lot of people asking the big question, which is what is next.
So the next thing I've got my sights set on is to try to become the first ever cross the Drake Passage in a rowboat.
Although I've never rowed a boat before in my life I want to explore new avenues of my mind and body, and so that for me, the Drake Passage is an incredible opportunity to do this.
The Drake Passage, just the waterway between the southern tip of South America and the Antarctic Peninsula, is known in the world of seafaring as one of the most dangerous, if not the most dangerous waterway in the entire world is the Southern Ocean.
The Atlantic and the Pacific all converge and you know you're gonna confront, most likely know 30 40 foot swells.
You've got icebergs.
You've got freezing cold temperatures, brutal storms, wind weather, rain.
And to take that on, you know, not just in a sailing vessel, but in a rowboat where you're actually having to generate all of the power yourself.
The emotional fortitude to keep growing in.
Those conditions are gonna be very, very, very extreme.
You're out, obviously won't be perfectly straight with the waves and the currents and whatnot.
But aiming right for the peninsula, so bypassing those outer islands.
So to do this expedition and to go down to Antarctica, you can't just take a vessel down there on your own.
There's a lot of rules and regulations that Antarctic of requires and requires an assisting vessel.
So this will be the first big expedition that I will actually get to see and attend.
Running the logistics from the ship will be quite interesting.
Won't be like life on land where I have planned projects before.
It'll be a dynamic impairment toe work from from the water and from the ocean.
And then I'm excited for it.
Wide open Ocean Drake Passage and then landing on Antarctica.
No big deal.
Think e love laying eyes on it.
After all, the planning and preparation is amazing to see it.
The robot itself is just over 25 feet in length.
It's basically a Spartan, as you can possibly imagine.
Smaller of the two hatches.
Coast skippers will share this one.
It's also where all the navigation and stuff is that will be controlling more.
Since we're in the leadership role, the other four will share this compartment back here.
It's a little more spacious.
Yeah, actually, Space two people in there.
But now the thing to imagine is there will always be people rowing 24 7 Boat itself needs to be in continuous motion because the Drake Passage is so intense it if you stop propelling yourself, you drift really quickly, constantly in this cycle of 90 minutes on 90 minutes off, three guys rolling, three guys resting, continuously crossing the Drake Passage.
The safest part about this whole entire situation, right is that the boat self writes this boat hypothetically in a massive storm.
Even if we were to flip over, it automatically flips back and in massive storms when it's gives maybe too hectic for us to even row at all, we need have all six of us inside, with the hatches battened down.
If we're all inside at the same time, there's basically enough room for us to just be shoulder to shoulder.
Huddled up might last, you know, two or three days until the storm subsides.
Enough for us to be able to continue to run.
This new expedition is a completely different challenge.
You know there's not just one team member.
It's not just calling out there on the rowboat.
You're hungry or 30.
You are injured.
You are tired while wet.
It's dark, it's blowing.
You know it's noisy.
It's scary.
I think many things, and when you put it all together.
It's major fascination for me.
My mom thinks I'm completely insane, but I see a different way.
I think that these things can be overcome.
I love pushing my physical limits because I was afraid of heights, started climbing mountains that gave way to a passion for discovering what else I could take on elementary school.
Principal in a dad and I was captain of the elk routine.
Not a lot of experience with ocean rowing, just trying to do something that is felt to me like once in a lifetime.
I just love the water and a lot of open water swimming in the ocean.
I love rowing.
It's an amazing experience for me is to really push my own boundaries to try to find the edges of human potential within myself.
I've kind of identify myself as an athlete from a very young age.
One, my first state championship in swimming when I was eight years old, then ended up getting the opportunity to swim at Yale University.
Not long after graduating from college ended up on this beach in rural Thailand and were some guys literally jumping a flaming jump rope.
It looked like a fun activity.
So I went ahead and jump this flaming jump rope in an instant.
My life change, you know, the rope wrapped around my legs.
25% of my body was severely burned.
If I didn't think the physical trauma was enough, the emotional trauma was even worse.
When a doctor walked in, he looked me straight in the eyes.
He said, You know, I hate to tell you this, Colin, but you'll probably never walk again.
Normally, my immediate responses was looking down at my legs like life as I know it is over.
But my mother, you kind of just kept at me with this love and this positivity and ultimately one day encouraged me to kind of close my eyes and visualize my future.
Then, in that moment, I visualized myself crossing the finish line of a travel on, which is not something that I had personally ever done before.
A year and 1/2 after being told I would never walk again.
Normally, I found myself at the start line of the Chicago Triathlon.
No, crossing that finish line that day was a complete and utter surprise.
I hadn't actually just finished the race, but I won three entire Chicago triathlon, that burn accident and ultimate recovery and what I learned about myself.
That's where the seeds were sown to kind of continue to push the edges of my own potential.
Colin really strives to inspire other, so when he goes out there during these things, he is looking to push his own personal limit.
But it's really in an effort to showcase that We are all capable of this, that what we strive to accomplish, what we dream to do and be is totally within our own capacity.
That's what makes him tick.
Pushing his limits and finding his potential and sharing that with the others.
The next expedition.
It's gonna take a wild arrangement to actually make it all happen and come together.
We plan as best as we can.
Of course, we know that we'll be encountering setbacks and obstacles along the way.
There's a fine line between excitement and fears, but I'm really looking forward to it.
It's hard to say what exactly I'm gonna be facing on the Drake Passage, but it's safe to say that it's gonna be one of the most treacherous experiences of my entire life.
