    Great accomplishment – congratulations. If I live that long, I’ll have to go up there again to beat the record but that’s still 30 years away!

    Wow what an accomplishment!! Congratulations! I knew you were up to something special when I met you on your flight to Kilimanjaro! I was your flight attendant that day and you gave me your businesscard.. It was an honour to have you on board on this special trip with your son.
    I wish you all the best and health for years to come! Kind regards, your KLM flight attendant Manon Bol
