With regards to our Gros Piton Hike, it was one of the hardest but most enjoyable achievements in a long time. In that heat and humidity for a couple of Scottish people it was quite something. Having passed 3 American couples and a French couple coming down only making it half way up was worrying but Lesa and I pushed through and made our way to the summit in 1hour 40 mins. We achieved the same time coming back down which was difficult with my knees having played soccer all my days, they aren't in the best condition.
Shane was great - on time - good chat and made sure we were comfortable in his company.
I felt very sorry for him on the journey back when he hit a pot hole and got a puncture. Not the greatest birthday present he'll ever get! But again he made sure both of us (and himself) were safe before he changed the tyre. Unfortunately, I was of no use to help him as I'm not in any way a hands on kinda guy! 10 mins delay and we were safely on our way. His space saver wheel, getting a lot of pointing and laughing from the local school children!!!
All in all - a great day. hard work, but thats never hurt anyone.
On behalf of my wife and I, thanks for everything you organized for us, we thoroughly enjoyed our tour & time in St. Lucia
