The Long Way Up is coming

One of my favourite docos is the Long Way Round, and Long Way Down, with Charlie Boorman and Ewan McGregor. 

For the unfamiliar, back in 2004 the boys decided to take a trip, after looking at a map of the world. They saw the Bering Strait between the US and Russia as being just a hop, skip and a jump.


So they headed off on a pair of BMW bikes and had an awesome adventure from London to New York.

Couple of years later they headed off on another adventure, this time from the Top of Scotland, to the bottom of South Africa for Long Way Down


Well, as you can see below, there is a Third epic adventure planned - tackling the America's from South to North and they are departing in the next couple of months. 
This is the first word we have on this, so Deets are still pretty scarce, but thrilled is an understatement
