On Track So Far….

Shackleton_Badge-01

Pulling together major expeditions such as these can be an emotional rollercoaster. The early phases are always particularly difficult as you are trying to get it off the ground, spread the word and build support. But eventually, after a lot of hard work (and soul-searching!) it begins to grow, support begins to trickle in and the momentum builds. And then it gets to a point where it really takes off and you become truly humbled by people’s generosity and good will. It might be a solo expedition but it would not be possible without the support of so many; friends, family, colleagues and sponsors.

One of my key sponsors, The Shackleton Company, have gone above and beyond in their support and their enthusiasm for the project is inspiring. In addition, I would like to take the opportunity to thank the following for their ongoing support:

Level Peaks Associates

Services Sound & Vision Corporation

The Infantry Battle School, Brecon

Adventure Training Group (A)

My little brother Nick Rudd 

The Alex Fairey Memorial Fund

Pete Masters at Skinzophrenic

Gus & Steve…

Team Army

Rhodri at Nordic Life

All of you and many more are all helping to make this bold and ambitious project a reality and I can’t thank you enough. Plus, I’m sure there’s someone up above watching down on proceedings with great interest…Onwards.
