    Keep going mate. Hope I was of help a little bit at Stavanger airport and hopefully settled your nerves a little. I’m following you steps and wishing you well. If you make it back to Stavanger to fly home on the 13th mate, I’ll be staying in the Airport hotel (I’ll be in off the chopper at about 9pm) – the £9 pints of lager will be on me. I very proud of you mate, as is all your friends and most definetly your family. I’m sure Ronnie’s chest would have been jutting out a mile – one son and Arctic explorer and the other (still)’the best kicker in the club’ . Goood luck.
