    great idea, someone needs to curb his enthusiasm - he can even run fast and talk at the same time!!

    Leg one done in 3.30 via parachute route in the dark. All going well. Very cold. Bladder freezing but little wind. Not much snow left.

    Keep us posted, tell him Moley and Missus are following it, did he wear his stripey thermals in the cold and is he wearing his hat yet?

    Spot-on nav from Tom on leg 1.
    Took about two hours after the end of the leg before my feet were defrosted... As far as I'm concerned this counts as a winter round!

    Will Caz get his daffodil round in one piece?

    Bill Williamson just tweeted that "Caz and Chris left wasdale at 15:30 leg 3 done in 5:25" That's a pretty swift leg 3!
