On 24th Jan, I took a trip to London, to meet Josh Patterson (Made in Chelsea reality TV star and ex-professional rugby player) and be on his limitless podcast, which is the number 1 Apple podcast in the UK.

Joe is an American stand-up comedian, mixed martial arts (UFC) commentator, podcast host, and former actor and television host.
Ash said “I’m super stoked to be on the podcast, I’ve been a fan of Joe and his podcasts for a while now and always hoped to get on the show one day, but never thought it would be this soon!”
Ash received an honorary credential on his most recent trip to China, by Shanghai Media Group. The credential was due to Ash’ positive promotions of sustainability and environmental awareness among the course of Mission Yangtze.

This time it’s to present at the prestigious TEDx Talk in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.
Trekking 1,500 miles across Mongolia alone confronting the elements whilst pulling an 18-stone homemade trailer full of supplies. Traversing Madagascar's length of 1,600 miles whilst facing crocodile-infested rivers, bandits, and the deadliest strain of Malaria.

There has been so much energy, effort, time, blood, sweat and fear put not only into the one year of undergoing the expedition but also two years beforehand, for the planning, training and logistics.
You know, as strange as it sounds, training is something I miss most.

I’m currently leaving Dali as I write this and I feel so refreshed due to dedicating that weeks visa run to refuelling my body with all the good stuff and working on body mobility, agility and flexibility. Especially after being stuck in such a fixed position for a long time (trekking with a weighted rucksack constantly strapped to my back).
When originally mapping the route and planning the mission, Yibin seemed such a huge distance away, that I remember not really planning Panzhihua to Yibin in much detail, believing it wouldn't be too difficult. I was wrong and although no way near as tough as the first couple of months, it still had its challenges and this section took me an extra two weeks longer than anticipated.
