An early trip to Africa changed the course of his life, it led to the British Army and the world of adventure.
I first met Graingey prior to an operational deployment to Afghanistan in 2002. We were beasted daily during the months of arduous build-up training and then served together on the same team. Living side by side in that austere environment you develop a great bond, he has been a long standing and trusted friend ever since.
Nick has led expeditions, travelled and worked extensively around the world. He has often returned to Africa. His favourite destinations are the mountains of Morocco, the Arctic and the Himalayas. Not only do these experiences give you a positive mental reference point for the future but they introduce you to cultures and people you would have never have met… a part of them stays with you when you leave.
Taking part in adventurous challenges is the only way to test your mettle to see if you have the mental and physical robustness to thrive in an ever-changing and occasionally demanding landscape. It’s where your confidence, self-esteem and humility are cultivated and humour shows its rich value. Races and events are great ways to keep you motivated in the short term but they do not live long in the memory.
Trident was born out of a passion for seeking out challenging experiences, to stretch the comfort zone and get the very best out of yourself. Above all, we are about enjoying incredible experiences with a superb team of positive likeminded people.
Going on a challenging adventure, being immersed in amazing wilderness and enjoying the company of good people… there’s never been a time when we need these experiences more than we do now.
