Ben Coombs previous "road" trip book "Survival of the Quickest" about driving an old Porsche 944 across Africa is a great read.

Great stuff. I've always wondered how these people get the money to embark on these expeditions, they must be quite expensive to do.

Quite a commitment too, there's not many employers that would let you have 7 months or more off work, and if I shut my business down for year whilst I went on such a jaunt, I doubt I'd have many clients when I got back, they'd have found somebody else.

Still, it's great that there are people out there who can embark on such adventures and tell the rest of us about it when they get back. The I was young I was captivated by Ted Simon's 'Jupiter's Travels' about his round the world trip on a Triumph 500.

I remember reading that Tim, again quite an undertaking, but I always thought he did to get material to write the book , this TVR guy seems to have done it for a drink!

I hope not. Dont want to be pious ( the usual warning for oncoming piety! innocent) but drinking and driving dont mix. So this story leaves me with mixed feelings. Nothing but admiration for someone whop would do that journey in a Trevor and disquiet at the nature of the stopping points.
