'97 tour member Anders catches up with Epic!


Dear Sabine and Alfie,
in '97 my sister and I from Denmark had the great fortune to participate on your tour (No p*ssy tour) from Cape Town to Vic. Falls. You might remember us as I was the one who chickened out jumping at the Zambezi...

Anyway, since then my left leg has been amputated due to cancer...which I have had for 10 years now. And for the first time since '97 I just googled your company and it really put a smile on my lips to see photos of both of you again...and to see your "new" Epic Enabled!!
Whenever I think back at my abilities before the amputation, going down and up Fish River Canyon on your tour always comes to mind. I probably couldn't do that today...but why would anyone want to do that more than once anyway ;-)So I just cherish what I did do then and now just continue to travel the world in my own new way...and no amputation or cancer can ever stop me from this.
From someone who only knew you before Epic Enabled I thank you for reaching out and helping ALL of us see this beautiful world...cause regardless of limbs and physical abilities we are all brought to be peace by beauty.

I hope this email finds both of you well and in good spirit.

Take good care!!

Anders

Hi Anders
What a great surprise!!
Thank you so much for your very nice e-mail. It is so great catching up with people from the "past"! Time flies definitely.... we have already a 4 year old son (Joshua) who is a real little "bush baby", I wonder who he has that from....,hi,hi.

We are sorry to hear about your cancer and amputation but it sounds like you are just as positive as ever and don't let anything stop you from travelling, the same we are aiming for.

I have been at the Fish River Canyon plenty of times and only ever climbed down & up once!!! :-)

We wish you all the best and happy travelling. Maybe who knows, we meet again sometime somewhere in this beautiful world.

All the best and kind regards

Dearest,
Yes, it's wonderful to catch up again!! Glad to hear about Josh and I can easily imagine the 3 of you on safari...fantastic!! Good for you!!

I have also been blessed with a 4 months old girl so I'm smiling and standing taller than ever! She will never be a true bush baby like Josh as Scandinavia is more likely to turn her into an ice princesse, but nevertheless, my girlfriend and I have often talked about going back to S.A....so I truly hope we all will meet again in this beautiful world!!

I will continue to surf your web page and keep up-to-date with your adventures!!
Enjoy every one of them and take good care!!
Peace and joy
Anders
