About Dave....
Hi, we had the best adventure with Dave. Presumably you know him, hope he's still going well and strong.....in all honesty he seemed older to us back in 1990! Would love to know what he's up to, believe he left Wittanoon several years ago. Hope you're enjoying your travelling adventures, best wishes, A&A

Unfortunately he is not in a good health. Suffering from mesothelioma and having a few mini stroke recently. But u know him how much determined and strong he is. I met him in our walking group. Always full of energy and smiling despite all the problems that he is going through.
