    A fantastic goal, and a great cause. All the best.

    Good luck Ben

    Why not take your Mum with you, she could do the cooking, washing, ironing etc.

    Hi Montgomery,

    I have a small team of friends and family who are going to work as a support unit for me. Some one will come out at least once a fortnight to resupply my food, update my maps and bring fresh underwear.

    For the more technical parts of the walk such as on Sky I have the help of a WML guide Scot Rodger (www.sdadventures.co.uk) who is also helping with the logistics of the trip.

    I hope this answers your questions.

    You should try and read Mike Cawthorne's 'Hell of a Journey', if you haven't already.
