    Just 'cos you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you !

    Remember, experience only means that you screw-up less often.

    Thanks the thing is, there are wonderful people everywhere (except in Dublin Airport customs office) I can't tell you how many people have helped us all over the world. Most travellers will tell you the same

    Thank you very much for taking the time to tell us about your trip, the challenges you faced, your camaraderie and your experiences in such an honest way; I thoroughly enjoyed your report.
    Thanks Ella It's great to get positive feedback

    So how high did Kev actually get?
    Thanks Walter I genuinely had no idea what high altitude would do to me, and I had researched it! The boys rode to 6030m They did some really hard stuff, much harder than I did But sure you know all about it

    Great report Mide. Really brought back memories for myself and Naomi. Especially the photos. Amazing scenery and fantastic achievement by everyone in the team. Looking forward to catching up at Enniskillen.

    Maith tú Míde.

    A fantastic achievement getting the record. And thank you for the report.
    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.

    Great write up - I've just read the whole shebang today - the old catholic delayed gratification thing still lingers.
    Some achievement - my alt record is 6263M; Chimborazo in Ecuador, on foot which I recon is easier than riding a bike.
    The separate graveyards for rich & poor is a good idea - would you wish to be buried beside a rich person?
    Good to see that Kev can multitask - sneeze & fart simultaneously
    Well done you guys.
