JPFreek Adventure Magazine Joins Forces With Extrem Events for Paris-New York Transcontinental Expedition
JPFreek Becomes Exclusive North American Partner for World's Most Challenging Expedition Across Bering Strait
Houston, TX - 8/26/2009 - JPFreek Adventure Magazine today announced a partnership with Extrem Events, a German expedition company, to become the exclusive North American media partner for Mattias Jeschke and his Transcontinental Expedition team. The partnership will provide Extrem Events a new and exciting digital medium to publicize its much-anticipated Transcontinental expedition, whose purpose is to promote CO2 neutrality and alternative energies. Extrem Events will also be working with JPFreek to expand its position within the North American Jeep community and to expand its Initiative Partner 15000 project to further build its sponsor base for the expedition.
The team, which earlier this year commenced a yearlong expedition that began in Paris and traveled all the way to Russia through Mongolia, is soon preparing the second leg of its journey. The journey will be climaxed by affixing a pontoon-style attachment to the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon vehicles used for the expedition to cross the Bering Strait. Once in Alaska, the team will be met by a third Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon piloted by JPFreek Adventure Magazine editor Frank Ledwell, and will complete the remaining journey from the beginning point of the Pan-American highway, south through Alaska, and then across Canada into the United States to New York City. [hope they stop at the offices of All Things Jeep!]
Frank Ledwell said of the expedition and partnership, "Overlanding and Expedition-style travel is one of the fastest growing segments in the off-highway industry. The opportunity to join an experienced adventurer like Mattias Jeschke is not only an exciting prospect but also one that we are excited to share with the entire Jeep and off-highway community."
The partnership is effective immediately and additional details about the partnership and community involvement will be announced in the near future.
