Jamest28.

At least we agree on one thing, I wish Bear Grylls had not mentioned me as well! Alan P

Julian, as I said in my previous post, I have the deepest respect for alan in respect of his achievements, my problem is with his attitude! as james said, it stinks, I've met Mr Grylls,(outside of the current challenge)and time will tell if he and his team are to succeed, his attitude however, was very modest with respect to his other achievements, and I don't see why Mr Priddy needs to be the way he is.

this thread seems to be going round in circles now, so I will shut up.

It's unlikely that I'm going to do much for ribs, is it!

I am certainly not linked to Bear Grylls's expedition. I have only met him (and his team) once at the London Boat Show in January.

Fortunately I have not met Alan Priddy at all!

I will now shut up on this topic and wish everyonel well.

Jon, you are right, this thread is going round in circles but on a parting posting and the last I will say on this matter, I have to say that the one and only reason I am upset about this is that Bear has made false statements not only about me but Steve Lloyd and Dr jan Falkowski which in our opinion is unnessesary.

You have hit the nail on the head when you said that you have met Bear outside of this Challenge.

The problem is that there are very few people on this forum who really know me at all. At the ripe old age of 50 I have done an awful lot of other things that I do not shout about and have no need to.

All Bear had to do is stop telling the press that he is going to be the first when it has already been done twice before.

I wonder if Alister Campell is on his team?

OK, I said I would shut up, but, what do you mean by that?

And I can vouch for the 100 people that met Alan last time he was over and they certainly do not think he is a twat!

He has been encouraged by all to come back later this year. They enjoyed his presentation and the fact that he was so approachable afterwards whilst we were enjoying the buffet.

Every time Alan and Clive come to Guernsey I have to find a bigger venue to accomodate the amount of people who want to turn up.

I first spoke to Alan as a total stranger over the phone in 2000 and he has never acted in the manner that some of you portray him in.

As every one has said let it lie, personally I am more interested in the lead up to the events from both sides and I think more positive posting and questions would be more interesting than bitching about people!

It can't be easy to find a hat that fits him either.
