Share Talk have followed Jeff Smith and his not-for-profit organisation Big Moose since he compered our Investor Show in Cardiff earlier this year. His latest (of many) projects was a small matter of climbing Mt Everest. We are a little late on this one (sorry!) but here is Jeff’s first blog since returning home having successfully completed his mission.
Jeff Smith of not-for-profit organisation Big Moose, and friend of Share Talk, will be attempting the final hurdle to summit Mount Everest as you read this article. – Update ! Jeff has done it – further updates to follow shortly.
So it’s been a little while since we updated you as to what is happening with Jeff as you may or may not know, he should probably be home or at least be on his way back home by now.
morning bigmoose team!
sorry for our radio silence on the blog front, things have been rather manic!
as you probably know, dad is out of the country until june 7th climbing mount everest! he is safely in nepal and his first 2 weeks there have been great and he is feeling really strong. the team he is with are all lovely, he is enjoying the whole experience, oh and he is back eating chocolate…. i’m pretty sure the box of 48 twirls that we bought him will have been consumed by now!
So it’s been exactly 3 weeks since Jeff’s journey to Mount Everest began. We wanted to update the Share Talk audience with some of the various videos and pictures we’ve been getting back so everyone can follow this amazing story. The pic above shows Jeff at Base Camp of Lobuche.
04:41 and i can’t sleep.
oh well, let’s get up and write my blog, what will i write about today?
no qualms about content today! 5 days to go. 120 hours. 7200 minutes. 432,000 seconds, and they are slipping by very quickly. until when?
We recently asked Jeff Smith of Big Moose to compére Share Talk’s Innovative Investor’s Evening at the National Museum in Cardiff on 18 February, sponsored by Financial Orbit Ltd. Jeff talked about his vision for the Big Moose non-profit organisation and gives us an insight to some of the many charitable projects they are undertaking.
sorry to write you a second blog on the same day, but i wanted to share some news with you before i mention it on social media.
we are going to climb mount everest!!! (hopefully you will come with me on the journey)
morning bigmoose gang,
i had hoped to bring you positive everest news today, but, and as i type this my heart is definitely beating faster, we still haven’t got the full funding for my trip, and in fact we are still quite some way off.
morning fellow bigmoose thinking people,
thanks for opening today’s blog, our numbers seem to be increasing weekly, and i would be telling an untruth if i said that seeing the subscribe and open numbers increase doesn’t give me impetus to keep rising and shining to write stuff, and hopefully the next few weeks blogs will have a little extra spice as we see whether i make it back to everest, to attempt to climb the most beautiful and tallest mountain on our wonderful planet.
