Okay, so I can be REALLY bad at keeping on top of my online admin, or at least in not publishing it. I do actually have a lot of content from the last 6 months, but just never published it, life and work does get in the way and my expedition and polar work is […]

First, I need to say, I had no intention of taking a break… this was completely unintentional, but necessary. In short, life got on top of me and I needed to take care of it and clean house, so to speak. After losing my other grandmother back in the beginning of the year, I figured […]

What a year, it’s been one hell of a ride… Now, I have been quite quiet, but for good reason.

I’ve made some great contacts lately and tried to negotiate some deals for sponsorship partners and it’s looking great. I can’t and won’t disclose any information until […]

It’s been an incredibly busy time these last few weeks and have spoken to some truly wonderful people about what I and the team are doing for the #lastpole attempt. I had the pleasure of speaking with the Monmouthshire Beacon who ran a lovely story on my campaign so far, how I got here and […]

I’ve been canvassing as much as I possibly can with contacts I already know, but today I had the pleasure of meeting with The Monmouthshire Beacon news to give an interview and information about our campaign and pledge to reach the pole of inaccessibility and very much look forward to seeing the finished article. It’s […]
