Diary: RAC man gets into top gear on the roof of the world

Brill, whose five-year-old daughter is visually impaired, is walking

some 70 miles at an altitude of over 10,000 feet as part of the

fundraising venture. As you can see from the picture Brill has been made

to dress up in the full kit for the trip which will see him and others

raise pounds 250,000 for Sense.



However, the outfit shouldn’t feel all that strange to Brill. He tells

me that the company which supplies those sexy RAC patrol uniforms is

also behind his mountain gear.



It won’t all be posing for pictures as a knight of the mountains for

Brill. The trek will be more than a little hazardous as he tells me that

he has no experience of life in high altitudes. ’I don’t really know

what to expect. I’ve been walking a few times in the Brecon Beacons but

that’s about the extent of it.’



Brill’s technical expertise should come in handy if there are any

breakdowns though.
