The second best piece of advice I have ever been given:

If someone with a big arse gives you advice - take it.

Things must move on,or we all stagnate.

Bear is a good guy and also his crew, whilst not as experianced with ribs as Alan they are lerning real quick.

The Sea doesnt change and they are up for it,and its first time round for them.

So who actually has the most bottle the guy who takes his first steps out there or the old lags who have done it all before. ?

Alan you once were the first to do it ,and have my respect for doing so.

But things move on and now its somebody elses turn to stand on the rostrum and gain there quit rightley deserved public respect.


Bye the way Alan how long is your boat ?

I wish them both a safe passage

Ah, seems he was SAS Reserves, which explains it. Hardly the toughest of the tough, though still not people to pick a fight with!

To the best of the info I've seen its the same test for the reserves as for the regular SAS.
Sir Ranulph Feinnes and other explorers have specifided that to come on their expedituions you have to pass the TA SAS selection as its open to the rest of us not just the MoD.
I don't think anyone is saying he's not a nice chap, but question the hype and inacuracies.

Didn't say it's not hard, but it's not as if you need to be superman to get in. Sure, he deserves some respect for it, as does anyone who's done that, but maybe he should have made it clearer that he was special forces reserves, as it's not quite the same. Special forces weekend regiment doesn't have quite the same ring to it now does it?

As it was said on that climbing forum, you can walk right into the SAS reserves, which you can't do with the real SAS, SBS, or even SBS reserves, and I've known enough people myself who would be more than capable of getting into the SAS reserves, but instead chose to join the regular army or marines.

Still, I wish him good luck and hope they make it.

Matt

I have been drinking, in the past, with Tim and have been a friend of the family, he is located in my address book under "hard barsta*d".

If they have to carry their boat over a mountain or two then Tim is your man, as he has already walked to the North Pole.

Nice bloke but never buys a round !
