Update from Dubai

Thought I would put a final entry on to the site for completeness, 3 weeks to the day I returned to Dubai, and 4 weeks since summitting.

News from the other guys is not good. Pommie, Ben and Andreas have all lost many toes each to frostbite, Pommie his two big toes from both feet. What with the 17 deaths on the mountain, just makes one realise how lucky us in the 2nd team were.

For myself, physically a bit weak still, surprised how much its taken out. Mentally fine though, and re-live the summit climb every single day. But it does take time to get over such an intense experience - if you ever do.

There's been a huge coverage of the expedition in the press, and sometimes have been a bit surprised by the extensive interest, but I do hold a great responsibility to my sponsors - Al Tayer Motors / Land Rover, Shell and Rolls-Royce PLC - and Im dellghted they've got so much coverage in return for putting their faith in the venture.

Finally, totally humbled by all the reaction and congrats recieved since returning to Dubai. Sincere thanks to everyone, it really is very, very much appreciated.
