If you ever thought you were adventurous, take a look at these guys. Not content to just paddle on a kayak across the Tasman to New Zealand in 2007, twenty-something adventurers Cas and Jonesy recently returned from an 89-day unassisted expedition to the South Pole (and back).
We got the chance to chat with the boys last week at a Garmin event for the company’s outdoor GPS products, and asked them about the things that made them tick outside the world of adventure.
Favourite sporting team?
Jonesy: Waratahs (even though they’re not playing brilliant).
Cas: Rocky IV.
Jonesy: I have a couple – Shawshank Redemption (that’s a little bit token though)… Lord of the Rings is pretty cool as well.
V8 Supercars or Formula 1?
Cas: Formula 1.
Jonesy: Formula 1.
Your current mobile phone?
Cas: What, my number? (laughs) iPhone 4.
Jonesy: iPhone 4.
Xbox of PlayStation?
Cas: I don’t play games…
Cas: (pause) Cold Chisel.
Jonesy: At the moment, Daft Punk.
Plane, train or automobile?
Neat casual or suit up?
Cas: Neat casual.
Jonesy: Neat Casual.
Watch of choice?
Cas: Garmin 610.
Jonesy: Gotta be the Garmin Forerunner 610 – although the 910 was pretty cool too.
Beer, wine or spirits?
Jonesy: Beer. Unless it’s gin.
