In 2009 Evans rode from Washington, D.C. to Antarctica—primarily by bus—sharing the 12,000-mile journey with his followers in real time. In 2011 he finished a two-month, 20,000-mile journey around Australia. In 2012 he visited a dizzying number of ports of call as correspondent aboard a National Geographic Expeditions private jet.
