I've just read the SoC e-mail newsletter. Jan has had to drop out, however he has been replaced by a local film cameraman Alan Carter. This new crew member brings a strange coincidence.
Quote: Carter's skills as a TV cameraman will be put to good use in documenting the Spirit's historic voyage. And his addition to the crew results in one little oddity - all four crew members were born in 1953, the year of the Coronation and first ascent of Everest.
1953 eh! Guess what year I was born in? Yes 1953. And I am the one who started this thread as well. Spoooooky.
See y'all soon.
