Living in a small wooden hut, leading a team restoring Britain’s first science station, Pete was often invited onboard visiting cruise ships to speak to the passengers. Reveling in the warmth of a ship and enjoying the chance to get away from field rations, Pete regularly delivered talks to groups varying from 50 to 300 passengers. Amazingly between 9000 and 10,000 people visited this small isolated outpost each year to learn how people exist without electricity, heating or running water. Journalists and TV crews regularly interviewed Pete resulting in appearances on Australian TV and the BBC.
Pete was invited to speak to the annual general meeting of the International Association of Antarctic Tour operators in New Zealand.
Back in the UK Pete has spoken to schools, Probus and Rotary clubs, Motor sport and Mountaineering clubs, both informally and at annual dinners.
