I had the opportunity to speak with an executive at National Geographic for a few
moments at an expedition presentation at University of California, San Diego. There was a short time to talk to him and I gave him my quick elevator speech about what I am planning to do.
His first question to me was, “What have you already done?”
It is a good thing that I’ve done shorter expeditions through Greenland and Yellowstone! I was able quickly relate those and received the answer I was hoping for.
“Okay, those sound good. Here’s what you need to do.”
Perfect! At least I have a little guidance to go on to get started developing media interest, finding sponsors and attaching a greater meaning and use for the expeditions in the near future and to Antarctica next year.
