My name is Simon
King, and I am a confirmed lover of the land. I decided in April 2000 that
I would undertake the journey of a lifetime and at the same time make some money
for two charities that
are very close to my heart.
With the journey now complete and Poppy taking a well earned break before
travelling home, I would like to thank Ms Sharon Packer for her kindness in
loaning me poppy, and all those who supported us throughout our journey. Pops is
resting as it would not have been right to put her straight in a lorry and take
her back down to Sussex. After all, she has pulled the cart over 1700 miles and
deserves some time to herself. At this moment she is being looked after by her
host's at the transportation company's own paddock. The cart and harness will
remain in Scotland and be auctioned for the charities on this site. The site
will have details of this ASAP. Once again I would like to thank all who
supported us through out our travels. And a big thank you to Mr Mcdonald-Wagstaff
for his assistance and time in arranging the transportation of poppy and the
auction of the cart. Finally I would like to thank Andy Hibberd who ran my site
for me and Mike Colton of the Allied Special Forces Association.
I am very grateful to all of the people and
that have supported and sponsored me for this event. Please visit my
'Thank You' page and visit their websites.
