To celebrate the 125th year of the MCSA, here are our Supertramps who will be exploring the world:

Later in the year:
– Chris Arderne, Michael Kloos and Rick Kotze will bag volcanoes in the Cordillera Neovolcanica and climb in Mexico
– Alex Bester will climb in the Pedras Negras in Angola in November together with Ebert Nel
– Jed Johnson and team mates, Craig Burton, will climb at the Hand of Fatima in Mali in November
– Tiffany Wells and team members, Kirsten Roberts and Sam Stainton, will climb in South East Asia at the end of 2016. Congratulations and the best of luck to all!
Sincere thanks to the donor for a cool R128 000.

Congratulations and good luck!

The MCSA Supertramp Award has been administered by the Magaliesberg (Pretoria) Section of the MCSA since 2005 for those young, impecunious wanderers whose cynicism is still directed outwards, in the hope that they will purchase at least a map, and as a tribute by the donor to the voyager who was Alexander Supertramp who wisely gathered his rosebuds whilst he could (Read Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer).

    Wow that’s fantastic! I have a few regrets in life, but not getting involved in Supertramp was one of them

    Sounds like some awesome trips!
    I’m curious to know which charity Ebert will donate his portion of the MCSA money to. I’m sure he would never accept funding from an “insiders club” of “cynical dicks”.
    Nice work MCSA on putting up R130k to make adventures happen!

    Lol. Wow. Hector. Point proven. If it makes you feel better, I’ll be part of your club of cynical dicks by the time we set sail:) if you can’t beat them, join them and use their funding, is my strategy. And it’s not my funding, it’s Alex’s.

    Your mind will be blown when you see what a bunch of dirtbags can do with 16k. In the true style of the super tramp we might just burn it up and go in with nothing 😀
