Fantastic site, only just discovered it- the dispatches are
great, especially the pics.
A little message for Simon: Never really got to say goodbye, so this is a very belated
message, hope you get it.
Looks like you're having a fantastic time, and needless to say I'm extremely jealous. I
can't believe it's been over a year since I was last on John Laing. I hope the heating's
better now than it was that very cold night... I doubt that little fan would have much
Thinking of you, best (and warmest) wishes, take care of yourself,
With love, Rosa

Only just discovered your expedition today. It's difficult
terrain inland (as I guess you already know). I spent the most miserable 3 months of my
life sledging in Trinity Peninsula 20 years ago. Expect v soft wet snow, even at plateau
level, much cloud, and fohns. Guess why Rory M didn't join in the fieldwork?! Good luck
for a successful trip.

We have enjoyed following the second leg, especially as our son
Edward was part of the crew. There was a real sense of let down as they came into Rio, and
the voyage was over. We will follow the rest of the voyage with interest.
We have enjoyed your site, which is really informative. Each time we have accessed the
pages have loaded with minor errors. I don't know if that's me or you, but its not a
common problem for me.
Anyway well done , and thank you for sharing the voyage with us through your excellent

How are you Rob? I'm fine. Working away on a chat show for BBC Scotland. Programme number
three will be recorded this week. Pervious guests have included Richard E Grant, Pauline
McLynn (Mrs Doyle for Father Ted), Dougay Scott (bad guy form Mission Impossible two), to
name but a few. I'm on this until the end of November and then who knows?
My Mum and Dad are going away to Spain this Thursday for two weeks. Fiona is also fine.
Although I've not spoken to her later, Mum says she's doing well.
You've got some fantastic photos form the yacht. It looks like your all having a great
time. I wish I was there. I've still to read through all the diary pages on the net. But
will do soon. I spoke to your Mum and she told me about the cutlery. The shame of it all.
I'm amazed you've not sunk the yacht yet or have I not read enough of the diary pages. Was
that last weeks entry? Day 22 Rob's sunk the yacht.
Anyway I've got to get back to work. Well I don't really it's just I've ran out of ####e
to say. I'll email you soon.
Take care. Safe journey

also we sent news to the broadcasting Falkland Is. Broadcasting Services)
Could be interesting for our readers and for the radio to introduce some news from your

I followed the trip from Gosport to the Canaries and
thoroughly enjoyed reading about the exploits of the crew. My niece Joanne Gill was a
member of the crew and I think I can safely say it is an experience she will not forget,
she talks fondly of the time she spent on the John Laing, including the 6 days she spent
being very sick. As a relative of a crew member I found the dispatches reassuring. I wish
the current crew a safe journey.
