I’m super-excited that the following generous companies are providing sponsorship support to the Amazon River expedition that is being led by Jacki Hill-Murphy. I only accept support by companies that I believe in and use their products and services.
Tep Wireless for overseas wireless connectivity. We’ll be relying
on Tep, a UK company, to provide connectivity to permit social media updates during our expedition in Peru and Brazil.
ArmaSkin anti-blister socks. I love these socks, using them regularly in Arizona for training and for big treks. They’re a wonderful small business in Australia with excellent customer service.
Summit Hut outdoor gear and apparel. I’ve been a faithful customer for over 12 years. Their customer service is consistently the very best. They have provided an array of dry sacks to help keep our gear dry.
Paleo Meals To Go freeze-dried meals. I love these healthy and tasty meals
from a wonderful family-owned small business in Colorado, USA. Business owners Dawn and Ty have provided an excellent variety to accommodate all our tastes, which are very eclectic.
Hennessy Hammock jungle hammocks and rain flies. I have already been using products from several of these companies, including Hennessy Hammock and so I’m a strong believer in them. This is because of fair pricing, outstanding customer service, quality products and services, and their commitment toward social ethics.
Craghoppers UK has recently joined the expedition to provide jungle attire for the team. Their anti-mozzie line will come in handy for the entire expedition. Based out of the UK, they are the largest outfitter of quality apparel in the British Isles, supplying jungle kits to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International, a charity that protects gorillas in Africa as well as their habitats.
We are excited to announce that AST Systems has come aboard as a significant sponsor. AST will be providing the expedition team with satellite capabilities to include GPS, weather reports, and SOS functionality. Based out of the United Kingdom, AST System Global has an office in my state of Arizona, USA.
Before, during, and after the Amazon River expedition, I’ll be making social media posts about these supportive companies, to include photos of their products as we work our way down the Amazon River.
Sincerely, Art “Karts”
