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!
