I have been watching this fella fer a while now.
The race kicks off on Sept 4th, should be interesting to follow.

Looks like a wonderful adventure.  I really hope that he achieves his dream, and even if he doesn't, at least he knows he tried, and won't die "wondering".

Totally agree Harry.
I'm going mad that he left Crosshaven this morning (only about 20 mins away from me) and I didn't know about it, I would have been there to show my support and wave him off.
