Crazy adventure environmental warrior

  There is a man in the world who is crazy, he advocates environmental protection, pays everything crazy, ignores the danger of his life, and propagates and appeals to people to protect the environment. He is known by many as “the fearless environmental fighter”.
  Professional adventurer
  This person is South Africa’s David trump Royce. He is extremely persistent, always concerned about the destruction of the environment by human beings. Excessive consumption of resources, wanton destruction of habitats, and intensified pollution … These problems have become a pain in Duplex’s heart, which has been bothering him, and he often sleeps at night because of this.
  Human beings are just one of thousands of species on the earth, a drop of the sea in the long river of history, but under the influence of human beings, other species have gradually moved from prosperity to decline and extinction, and the earth is also experiencing unprecedented destruction. Dupuis “keep the world in mind”, the more he can’t calm down, he finally adopted an extremely novel way to defend the environmental protection-to become a professional adventurer.
  In today’s fast-paced information age, whenever something radical happens, it can attract people’s attention. Duplex hopes to “at risk” to attract the attention of the world, calling on people to work for the environment.
  Almost the cost of life
  of adventure and comfort not completely draw an equal sign, and thus Du Les life is full of hardships, of course, dangerous. In 2012, he ventured into the Amazon jungle in South America alone, almost lost his life in the jungle, and had an adverse effect on his future health.
  Duplex planned to take a canoe down the Amazon River and sail from the source of the Peruvian Andes to Brazil’s Atlantic coast estuary. The entire journey is expected to take about 5 months. But the plan could not keep up with the changes, and two months later he was attacked in the jungle of Peru. A primitive tribesman who lived in the jungle opened fire on him four times. He had several bullets in his body and fell down. Fortunately, he was still conscious, but shrapnel remained on many parts of his legs, face, and throat. He couldn’t walk, couldn’t shout, and could only crawl on the ground in order to survive. Gritted his teeth, he climbed nearly 5 kilometers, only to find a small village was rescued.
  Before setting off, Duplex thought that sailing on the Amazon was just an adventure, used to raise the awareness of personal responsibility for nature, and did not expect to become a brutal battle for survival. After Duplace was rescued, his body left almost permanent trauma. The heart, diaphragm, and back still have about 12 particle bomb fragments, which are fatal due to sensitivity and cannot be removed for surgery.
  However, the experience of dying did not bring down Duples, and he was not afraid, on the contrary, this experience made him stronger. He felt that lingering between life and death allowed him to touch the limits of his body, understand where the limits of his own endurance are, and provide a reference for future adventures.
  Greater adventure
  a few years later, Du Rice again challenge, but also greater risk. He decided to do something unprecedented to call on people to protect the environment.
  This is the transatlantic, and does not rely on oil, gas, coal and other fossil fuels, do not ride a motor boat, Dupulai specially built a small pedal boat, hoping to complete the crossing entirely by manpower. Starting from Cape Town, the capital of South Africa, all the way west to Rio de Janeiro, a famous city on the east coast of Brazil. The voyage is expected to be 6,450 kilometers in length, taking a total of 90 to 150 days. If set off, this will be the greatest adventure Duplex has ever faced.
  The so-called maximum adventure was completely “looking for himself”. For environmental protection, he insisted on not using motor boats or sailing boats, relying only on manpower to provide forward power with pedals. To this end, his uncle shipbuilder helped him find a South African naval designer, built this unique pedal boat, and named it “Vacuita” (a dolphin in the Gulf of Mexico, an endangered species).
  Needless to say, the shipbuilding materials have been carefully selected by Duplex to meet environmental standards. Compared with ordinary pedal boats, Vacquita’s biggest advantage may be that it has a sturdy cabin, which prevents Duplex from sailing in the sun and rain. However, the cabin design is not large, and can only accommodate one or two people. While Duplex presses the pedal to move forward, he can also use his hands to cook, pump seawater, operate navigation and other tasks.
  Lost credit?
  When everything was ready, Duplex set the departure date on Friday. This is a special day. According to the traditional culture of the maritime community, Friday is considered to be a very unlucky day, and Duplex is challenging the tradition. Along with him, there was an “assistant”-his mother.
  They were full of spirits, hoping on the boat with hope, and prayed for a smooth journey. However, “all the way” does not always mean “all the way”. “Vaquita” set off at Table Bay in the northern part of Cape Town. It had encountered a strong wind and a southeast wind just after its launch, in line with their course. Their boat was also blown out by the wind and disappeared.
  The next morning, Dupleis’ mother checked the dashboard and learned that the boat drifted downwind into the Atlantic Ocean, 19 kilometers from shore. The mother experienced physical discomfort that day, perhaps due to strong winds causing violent waves (at that time, the wind speed was as high as 111 km / h, equivalent to the power of a typhoon of magnitude 11), and she suffered severe seasickness. Until the afternoon did not improve, Dupulai had to contact the Cape Town Maritime Rescue Center, and they were dragged back.
  After this accident, Duplex is still full of positive attitude. He felt that at least he knew that the Vacquita could withstand the impact of such strong winds and waves. It was not damaged, and the passengers on board were well protected. During the bumps, they never felt panicked, let alone a life-threatening situation. In the same way, Duplece believes that this attempt has once again raised the limit of his body’s endurance at sea and laid the foundation for the next crossing.
  Next time, Dupleis was going to find a better time to set off, and crossed alone.
