Richard Whitmarsh AKA helimed01 (Whitters) weighs 102kg in jeans and T shirt just now.

However when we started talking about this gig I was 105kg. No alcohol since X-mas and been to gym 2 or 3 times a week to loose weight and train specifically for this event. By tip to tip launch day I hope to be arround 97kg, maybe less!!

Long consecutive flights make my neck shoulders and back ache. I flew from Nantes to the Pyrenees in a race in 2006 over 3 days, thats only about half the distance / effort of our challange. The weather was good the whole way and it was hard work, we might/will not have such good weather :cry: . I have no illusions as to the physical and mental efforts required to complete this event. The more training I do now the easier it will be.
