    If i ever meet up with Mother Nature i am going to give her a hard slap across the face! Come on give the lads a break! Keep your eye on the prize chaps – your determination and the bond you have created between you will get you there and what a feeling when you arrive i can but only imagine! SOOOOOO PROUD !

    Hi MARK, Kev & Vic, well to say you have a huge task ahead of you is an under statement. BUT, if anyone can do it, it will be you three tough guys! Fingers and everything crossed that the weather will improve and you will achieve your dream.
    Hey Mark, went to breakfast this morning with ‘DS’ and his lovely family. Saskia his daughter has a school project to do on “a local hero”. Obviously she wanted to do her Dad (Paul) but has chosen to do you…..what an honour….
    Thinking of you three and wishing you all the luck in the world for the 17th.
    Keep warm, stay safe,
    Much luv,
    Mum X

  3. Dig in Vic, almost there mate. Great effort!

    Hard luck with the weather today lads.
    Dig deep for the next three days then you can spend the rest of your lives bragging about it.

    Hi Kev

    I have listened to the audio report tonight with Luka and Neve, our thoughts are with you, and we all hope you make your dream on the 17th.

    Luka said she would like to leave a message – first of all she said to wish you Merry Christmas! I told her Christmas has gone for this year and would she like to say something else.

    Her words – “we welcome you home soon daddy. We love you lots. Luka and Neve xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (she spelt and typed her own and Neve’s name) Bless.

    Good luck Kev and the Scott Team – you deserve to succeed after all you have had to deal with. We are so very very proud of you all. Stay safe and God speed.

    Love Hills and Brian XXX

    Sorry you’ve had another bad weather day.
    Mother Nature hasn’t been your friend but you, Mark and Vic have continued to defy her..20 nmi per day..No probs…She’s messing with the wrong blokes!!
    I’m sure you will get there on the 17th…Mum say’s “Of course they will!” So there you go!
    Look forward to seeing you on your return.
    Love you lots and very proud of you

    Hi MARK, Kev & Vic,
    Not far now, you boys are so tough, you’ve had it hard but still you come through with good spirits. To say I’m proud of my son is an understantement, he knows he’s my hero, I think I speak for all Mums, we all love and are immensely proud of their achievements. I was so touched by your dedication to both granddads yesterday.
    We are all waiting for your safe return, take care, keep safe and God’s speed.
    With much luv,
    Mum x

    Well done! We are amazed by your endurance and your perseverance. Can’t imagine what it’s like, whilst we enjoyed the materialism of a cosy British Christmas and new year there were you travailing through such adversity. Listened to your inspiring audio blog and my next job is to donate to the British legion as requested.

    Happy new year and look forward to seeing you soon and hearing the full story.

    Love jo, gio, Willa, Hannah and johnny

    Well done Henry and Lou, we are all so very proud and humbled by your amazing achievement and to get there on the 9th, brilliant. Just waiting on our boys now on what will be a very historic day. Take care and see you when you get home.

    Congratulations Lou & Mark. AMAZING, 700 miles in those conditions with a 9,000ft climb, truly remarkable. I can’t even imagine! I suppose this means I’ll have to make a donation!!!!

    Lucy, Amy, Sofie & Luke, you must so proud.

    Jan, Kate, Georgia & Charlie.
