Top girl ! Seems to be waaaaay ahead of the rival record (lots of detail and more at http://www.teamellen.com) but I was watching some stuff earlier and pondering what is must be like. I could list many things and I’d come over as some sort of condescending idiot because the text wouldn’t carry the humour – in short, I think what she has done is amazing, it really is. But thinking of all that she does, there is one part that really does make me think and go “Wow!” – sleeping. She is going to sleep alone while this great yacht belts along across the waters. I mean .. it could crash / collide with something ! (I’m told the probability of falling into a hole is low). Now how much tiredness must make you just think “I don’t give a sh*t” as you roll into what passes for a bed ? And when you wake up, it’s not like you can check passing scenery to see where you are is it ?
Yes, I know there is lots of tech stuff, GPS and whatnots, but in the end, she has to trust this stuff. She is closing her eyes and sleeping while putting a huge amount of faith into electronics (that’s electronics floating on water – and they don’t mix).
Good luck to her, and she couldn’t beat a better bloke ;)
