Phase 2: Baz is planning a much bigger journey in Antarctica during the next summer season November 2019 – February 2020 in which he will attempt to cross the entire continent this time and from sea to sea via the South Pole. Planning has already begun but the exact distance and route he will take is yet to be decided and will be communicated in due course.
Product development for adventurers: Baz also continues to work with SATcase in the final development of the exciting new SATcase satellite communications device after conducting the most extreme field test in the market.
Continued charity work: Baz is a passionate presenter of his expeditions to schools and other youth organisations. He already has a busy programme taking him into Europe as well as all over the UK talking to thousands of children about everything from Resilience to Polar History. As well as this and as part of his charity work he plans to start a Foundation for children effected by the conflict which is a bigger issue than most people realise. He will use his skills and network to take children to the Mountains of Norway to give them the experience of a lifetime in the most remote of places. This has such a profound effect on young minds allowing them to relax, open up and talk about their feelings. They always come back different people with a much better outlook on life.
