I do say, stepping out of line here, aren't you Pte Fuller! Stiff upper lip, stand to attention!

As you were.

Now report to the guardhouse and do 4,000 one handed press-ups!

I think you had best do a bit of homework first before coming out with any more of these comments.

there are a few things in common with Alan and Bear.

1. They are both going to cross the Atlantic
2. They are both rivals in this respect
3. They are both using SOLTRON in their fuel

What a strange post!...With respect, I don't need to do any homework, all the facts are here!
I don't think "I've bin there, done that, and got the tee shirt" Priddy, considers Mr Grylls a 'rival' as he's only copying what the masters already done in his eyes! as for both using soltron, who gives a toss about that!
My point is that it's very 'british' to knock anything, or anyone you can, and Alan seems to be a master at this, whilst of course, blowing his own trumpet till all our ears are bleeding! does bear grylls do this publicly? (slagging people off) I doubt it.
Why is it not possible to just let the other chaps have a go, and see what happens, instead of all this juvenile 'knocking' it is after all, quite a serious thing they both want to do.

Also, your No1 fact should read, they both 'WANT' to cross the atlantic, as 'ARE GOING TO' seems a bit presumptuous!

kind regards,

No not really Alan, my gut instinct is to mock you a bit when you start blowing your own trumpet!, mainly because there's no need to do so when you 'have' actually done stuff! I have the greatest respect for anyone with the balls and determination to do such things as cross atlantic, london-monaco, and RTW, I just hate hearing all that 'tee shirt shit'! plus you lot take me too seriously!
