I spent 4 days working over covering while that pilot was flying for BP, but now I'm back to my regular contract and about 200ish miles away. Where I'm at you'd never know whats happening.

The renowned adventurer was the first man to visit both the North and South Poles by foot and the first to completely cross Antarctica by foot.
Last May at the age of 65 he climbed to the top of Everest, the world's highest peak, to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Sir Ranulph had a double heart bypass in 2003 and suffered a heart attack two years later as he came agonisingly close to the summit of Everest.
He has also ran seven marathons on seven continents in seven days in 2003 and climbed the treacherous north face of the Eiger in 2007.

It lapsed because we've all been working on our Land Rovers


(I'm currently trying to find a clutch/gearbox problem on a nice Td5 Defender 130 pick up...)
