The Serres expedition ended with a little extra excitement yesterday when John Herman, with his new HD quality camera, decided that he wanted a new glider. Rather than persuade Steve to part with some cash he decided it was easier to dispose of the glider in multiple pieces across the mountain top . He also wanted wanted value for money from his PLB, which he set off with the air ambulance promptly arriving. After sampling a number of French hospitals, none of which knew what to do with our tame plumber, he eventually ended up in Grenoble. Thankfully I can use this jovial tone to describe yesterday’s events as John is only slightly battered and bruised, sat up chatting as usual and with his wife Christine. We hope he will be out very soon.
