Going Solo Projects > Going Solo QuadEpic
QuadEPIC is the vision of Paul Everitt, a 26 year old entrepreneur from Grimsby, NE Lincolnshire, UK. After many years of hard work, developing a successful plumbing business, he made a fateful decision in the winter of 2005… taking a vacation to France. It was during this trip, and after meeting a variety of interesting and inspirational characters, that his eyes were opened to the wonder, excitement and endless possibilities the world had to offer. In August 2006, he left his former life behind, and took off on a quest to experience new and amazing places and people.
Over the next three years, he accomplished everything he had ever hoped for, exceeding both his expectations and wildest dreams. Fiji, New Zealand, Australia, Panama, Costa Rica and Canada are among the many destinations he experienced, the last two being of particular significance.
It was here that he discovered a deep love and respect for wildlife and our natural world: from helping sea turtles lay their eggs in Costa Rica, to tracking herds of elk across the vast Canadian Northwest Territories. He found an interest in nature photography, and spent over a month camping alone, deep in the forests of Vancouver Island, Canada. It was there that Paul decided he needed to do something to help protect and conserve our beautiful planet.
It had always been an idea in the back of his mind to travel from the UK to Singapore. Upon returning to England in September 2009, Paul put into motion plans to achieve his goal. In addition to further experiencing the amazing and vastly different people and places our world has to offer, he saw an opportunity to raise funds for a charity who shares his passion, and who is in a position to really make a difference.
