Far trek: the accounting generation

Devils_staircaseIn its prime, TS used to be renowned for its endurance, stamina and speed. In fact we once held the record for the fastest pub crawl around the London Underground circle line, at least amongst it peers anyway.

Nowadays we’re a lot more laid back and wouldn’t be seen dead near the latest challenge that a bunch of accountants are taking on. Actually, we would be seen dead there, if we were foolish enough to get involved

The State Street Caledonian Challenge involves trekking 54 miles in 24 hours and eight teams of accountants have been brave/stupid enough to sign up for a ‘stroll’ that takes in Glen Nevis, the Devil’s Staircase and Loch Lomond.

TS wishes the participants from KPMG, Deloitte, PwC, Andrew Hamilton, Chiene Tait, JPMorgan, Presence and RBS the best of luck in their quest for the fastest accounting team trophy, won by KPMG last year.

Unfortunately TS already has plans to have its feet up with a book in one hand and a glass of wine in the other that weekend.
