Hi Carl - not sure you can control the weather! Even I haven't found a way to deal with that. In many ways it was a really good learning curve for the younger ones. Seeing some fools try to combat Mother Nature was funny to start with, but when they nearly lost someone who slipped on a rock, and they just got hold of his rucksack - that was a moment! Andy was great - he answered a multitude of questions, and was very helpful. Clearly the legislation is a pain, but it's there for a good reason. My advice to you would be to organise the itineraries so you somehow move the rest period to remove the delay. 24 hours is the challenge, and to have a big chunk of the time not being able to move doesn't help! But we know that and understand it's not your fault. Nice to meet Christian, and likewise he really helped with the bus handover for the trip South. All in all a great weekend. Let me know what I owe you for the water, which was a real help!
Thanks for organising the mini-bus and transport so well for us. Everything ran so smoothly and it was great to have a comfortable mini-bus with trailer and plenty of room for the trip. Both you and Andy got us where we needed to be in a great time and this allowed us to complete the challenge. Booking was easy and your recommendation of the guide, Joe, was also appreciated
"Hi Carl I hope all is well I have attached a few pics as promised following the challenge on 1 July 2017. I am not too sure if Josh and Kris have been in touch with any feedback but more than happy to assist. The service provided by Carl and Andy was first class and very professional and made the challenge more enjoyable. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any other groups who are planning to take on the 3 peaks Challenge Regards Tony Morrissey – Senior Civil Clerk"
"Hi Carl Thanks for the email and follow up! I wanted to personally say a huge thanks to you for the fab driving, advice and all round support you gave our group this weekend! Unfortunately didn't get the chance to say this face to face or goodbye but I really did want to pass this on. I didn't end up climbing Snowdon as I didn't want to risk injuring the knee and holding up the group again. Super proud the rest of them completed it with no falls or injuries on Snowdon! Pleas pass on my thanks to Andy too for keeping me company on Sunday and hope his family are well and enjoyed Sunday night's concert. Here are a few photos from the weekend and would happily give feedback on any websites you use. All the best and thanks again! "
"The driver Couldn’t be nicer (cleaned up my little accident) – was really knowledgeable about the trip as a whole. Nice comfy minibus."
"The trip was well organised. Both made me feel safe and well informed of what was to come. It was nice that they made stops for us."
"I thought he was really supportive of everyone on the trip. Very well natured and slotted into the team very well."
