Neil and Dave visit the Rab factory.

Neil Cottam, Dan Thompson and Dave Slater at the Rab UK Headquarters.

Dave and I called at the Rab UK Headquarters in Alfreton, Derbyshire today to collect the Neutrino Endurance Jackets and Ascent 700 Sleeping Bags for The Himalaya Quest. Many thanks to Dan Thompson for arranging this for us and the generosity of Rab’s parent company Equip Technologies for supplying them to us. It’s been a great help and has allowed us to focus on the many other things we’ve had to deal with.

Thanks Guys. You’re The Bomb! 🙂
Tricia Whitt commented  on our Facebook page that “It is all starting to look mighty real now!” OMG I think she’s right! Seven months ago it all looked so far away; now with just over seven days to go it’s starting to look a bit scary! 😀 But in a good way 😉
We are really looking forward to it now and I can’t wait to see my old friend Wilco Voulon when he arrives in the UK, from The Netherlands, next Saturday to travel with us. 🙂


We are undertaking The Himalaya Quest in aid of the charities Rainbows Hospice and Whizz-Kidz.
Please feel free to sponsor us at JustGiving using the links in the box at the top of the page.
