Richard Fountain he’s only gone and done it! – he made it.. to the top of the world. The summit of Mount Chimborazo, which is the place on Earth that’s the furthest distance from it’s center. I’ve been following his incredible Journey (post #1 | all posts tagged richardfountain) – from a rainy night in Harrogate in August, bolstered by Talisker and derring-do discussions, to this – a splendid shot from the top of the mountain. An over land only adventure with a sub plot of raising awareness to his The Big Table project, and to raise funds for Henshaws society for blind people. If you’re so inclined, bung a couple of quid into his collection pot via his JustGiving page.
His topically Bond-esque message, to go with this virtual postcard is as follows;
“Broadsword calling Danny Boy . . . . . Broadsword calling Danny Boy . . . . . Come in Danny Boy . . . . . On Top of the World . . . . . Over . . . . .”
Nice one Richard – There’ll be a Talisker waiting, upon your safe return!
