Thanks, MountainMan!

It's going to be quite a challenge, that's for sure! And my first time in India too, so all very exciting.

Thanks for your interest and do spread the word if you can, sponsors very much needed!!

Hi guys,

Yeah, sadly the India trip was canned as UNICEF couldn't get the numbers for the team to make it financially viable.

Watch this space for new adventures in 2013 though...

Hey Jeanie - thought you'd only see me on twitter eh??? Cancelled - that is such a shame! Why not pop on over to the UK and join me on the dambusters2013 run then??? Mind you - I cannot say the weather or scenery would be a touch on your trip through India!
