Bec says: May 19, 2011 at 9:49 pm We’ve all been with you every step of the way Alan. Your last audio dispatch made me cry, listening to the your story of your Mum’s Alzheimer’s & I am about to donate now. Go summit that great hill & have a safe journey back! Bec in Sydney Australia Matt Browne says: May 19, 2011 at 9:43 pm Go Alan Go! John Little says: May 19, 2011 at 9:39 pm I’m still amazed at how strong you sound but I shouldn’t be because I know how hard you’ve trained for this. Running up and down multiple 14ers per week hasn’t hurt your chances and you definitely have the mental toughness to get to the summit and back. Stay safe. Climb on!
