So sorry to hear about this.

Had the pleasure of meeting him on several occasions, great guy, nice to chat to, impressive ideas that came to fruition.

He'll be missed

Jim

Very sad indeed,I was always inspired by his pioneering work and achievements.He moved the boundries of what was possible with the right determination and application.He stopped posting on here sadly and I don't do facebook so I lost touch with the latter stages of his ZT-T build. Can anyone tell me what power figure it ultimately made? RIP Geraint.

Sadly I never met him - very much my loss. His ZTT looks awesome.

And as others have said always more difficult for family at this time of year. SWMBO always has difficulty in December because the anniversary of her Motherís death is just a few days away now.

I only knew Geriant from his posts on Facebook. An incredibly brave, witty and resourceful young man with integrity. 7 weeks ago he reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro raising over £6000 for charity. No easy feat and a tremendous achievement. An inspiration.

Our condolences to his family and to all of those who knew and loved him.
