In the late 1920s, the husband-and-wife duo Don and Phyllis Munday believed there was an undiscovered peak in the Coast Range about 200 miles north of Vancouver which was an uncharted part of the province.  They called it Mystery Mountain and set out to find it.  They achieved their goal in 1928, reaching the lower summit of Mystery Mountain which became known as Mount Waddington, the highest peak inside British Columbia at 13,186 ft.   About 90 years later, a team of six set out to retrace the Munday’s expedition to Mystery Mountain using only 1920s era equipment.  Greg Gransden directed the documentary film about the adventure titled The Mystery Mountain Project which is available to view online.  You can learn more about the film and the team at canadianehsociety.ca.  Greg Gransden, welcome to The Pursuit Zone.

TPZ200: Building a Bike-Car and Cycling across Canada with Paul Everitt



Back in 2006 while snowboarding in the French Alps, he met some backpackers and became fascinated with their lifestyle and tales of travel and adventure.  Soon after, he quit his job and spent a year working and traveling Australia.  A few years later, while backpacking and volunteering in Central America, he decided to retire the backpack and begin traveling in other ways.  First, he built a bike-car that seats two cyclists in the front and two in the back.  Its maiden voyage was from the UK to Italy and after some modifications he cycled it across Canada and partway down the west coast of the US.  Since then he has gone on to do many more adventures including kayaking the Inside Passage.  You can learn more about Paul and his adventures at going-solo.co.uk.  Paul Everitt, welcome to The Pursuit Zone.
