Rupert 'ape factor' Longsdon

Rupert Longsdon, 34 and only six weeks wed; not only is taking on the challenge reaching the Pole of Inaccessibility but also spending his first Christmas away from his new wife! As his best man said in the speech at the wedding ?What does the Baby Chick do?? (apart from snore at great volume and feast on his bogeys! - at least we know Baby Chick won't starve!)

Primarily he runs The Oxford Ski Company who are the leading Ski Agent for the very best in luxury private chalets in the Alps. With the company running since 1998 and therefore spending many winters in the Alps, a trip to Antarctica should be like a ski season. www.oxfordski.com

He also co-owns The Tunnel House Inn and The Amberly Inn in Gloucestershire.

Not content with work revolving around two great past times, skiing and cider. He now has a little Fireworks Display and Sales Business damngoodfireworks.co.uk
