Up up and away

November 12, 2010

Dave Clamp and John Saunders are on their way .. and they’re doing it in style too!

The luxury of club class has proved to be a wonderful treat and huge thanks go to British Airways Pilot,  Ivan Davies, for sorting everything out for the lads.  Ivan is one of Dave’s Personal Training clients and is a great supporter.

Here’s a message from Dave as he boarded the flight

“Wow!  We’re in 1st class.  Got a bed on the plane.  There’s enough room to do training in here!  It’s empty up ‘ere int posh bit.  This is unbelievable luxury… right.. feet up,  top man Ivan… byee got to get some zzzzz”

A message from John Saunders this evening confirmed that Club Class had been virtually empty and the flight was good.  He went on to say:

“Houston transfer was a drag but we managed to get to the Olympic village 01.10hrs this morning, got some sleep, have had breakfast and are sorting things out gear wise.  Bike has been assembled and tested on circuit.  Got ‘Opening Ceremony’ to go to at 12 and then tomorrow to finalise preparations.  Dave is in good spirits!”

All your wonderful messages of support are being read by Dave and John and they’ll be replying as soon as they get a moment.

    I sent a note out at work to all my colleagues and the overiding feeling in the responses is just of awe at the challenges and monumental distances you are covering.
    To top it all, several people have gone off to Alex’s site to make donations – which is just brilliant. Hope that just helps with your motivation and the plans you have to support Alex – you are BOTH inspirational!

    Hi Dave,

    Glad that you and John got the Mexico ok and that you’re settling in. Huge thanks to your brother, Tim, and evryone who has donated to 10MillionMetres so far for Parkinson’s research. I really think that what you’re doing is awe inspiring and truly amazing. I often use the term “make change happen” and you certainly are! With John Saunders there, I think you’re in good hands too!! Thinking of you both and wishing I was with you in Mexico.
