Hello fellow hiker/adventurers!
My name is Cargo. I am here to share a unique and amazing opportunity for those few among us bold enough to take life to the extreme.  I will be brief in my description but, when you are finished reading this, those of you whose interest I have piqued or passion I have stirred will have the means to contact me for more information. 
A little more than a year ago I came upon the crazy idea to do a thru-hike of the entire Western Hemisphere, from the very bottom of South America to the very top of North America.  After some research, I found absolutely no documented evidence that anyone had ever even attempted such a feat, much less completed it. The more I researched and thought about it the more excited and convinced I became that this was a very possible achievement. And not only that, but it was high time someone actually accomplished it!  As most of you well know, in today’s world it becomes ever increasingly difficult to lay claim to having been the very first to genuinely achieve a certain feat.  But this, by God, was just such an opportunity!  
And so, last December I flew down to Ushuaia, Argentina, the southernmost city in the world, and I began my quest to be the first to complete the greatest thru-hike in the world. Unfortunately for me, 2 ½ months and 1700 miles later I rolled my ankle and severely injured the peroneal tendon of my left foot. It has taken way too many months to recover from my injury but I am finally ready to make another attempt at what I now consider my ultimate goal in life. During my time off healing though I came to the realization that although I would love to lay claim to being the only person to ever thru-hike the entire western continent, it would  make the challenge even sweeter if there were other talented hiker adventure types that I could match my skills against. Not only that, but, the more trailblazers involved, the more attention drawn and the more newsworthy the feat.  Therefore, a spirit of competition was definitely in order.  
So here is my $20,000 Cargo Challenge…..
I am willing to lay out $20,000 to any man, woman or child hiker/adventurer bold enough to begin this thru-hike with me on December 19, 2016 and to award that $20,000 to the very first one to legitimately complete an unsupported  continuous northbound thru-hike of the entire Western Hemisphere from Ushuaia, Argentina all the way to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. This thru-hike is by foot alone.  No other mode of transportation is allowed. 
Any one interested in my proposition or that would like more information and details concerning this challenge can contact me by email at [email protected] 
It is my opinion that the individual that can lay claim to being the very first to complete this most amazing thru-hike can also lay claim to being one of the greatest thru-hikers of all time……… if not the greatest!  This is your opportunity!
