Carry On Williams
Well Vibes, I am happy to see you are still on the "road". Sorry to hear about Pinto, he looked like a nice chap but you both know that you had the pleasure of meeting him. Well I know you have been to Morne Diablotin but that peak is a good one. Two times the size of Diabolitin is no small climb. JUst giving you the support to keep going and look forward to read the "The Great Adventures of Vibert and Shanna" when it is all over.

Feel your pain
Vibes/Shanna; I could feel your pain as I read through this one. At the same time, I could also share in the "painful" excitement. Sounds like great fun. I look forward to more updates!

Heights Reached By Great Men & Women
Chief, I have been following with much enthusiasm and with much envy your adventure and expedition. I commend you for the bravery, chivalry (running behind the donkey while Shanna rode), adventurous side, as well as your stick-to-it-iveness in pursuing this goal. Your ascent and arrival at Pico Duarte is a testament to the old addage, the heights attained by great men (and women) were not attained by sudden flight, but they while thier companions slept - kept toiling upwards through the night. Both of you epitomise the latin phrase - "Tentanda Via" (i.e. the way must be tried). As you track on, I send God's blessings on you both and may the Holy Spirit protect you in your adventures. If you need an agent to organise the book deal - let me know...I will do it for free.
