Trip Pre-Meet

Six of the team, plus families, met up in the Forest of Dean this weekend to get to know each other better, introduce the families, and check the vehicle packing and cooking skills. On Saturday everyone went for a walk down to Symonds Yat, and in the late afternoon 7 kids and parents went off to the local Go Ape to test their nerve on the high wires. Sunday was given over to trip and packing planning.

Introducing the Expedition

| | TrackBacks (0)

The Roof of the World Expedition involves a group of 8 friends and acquiantances taking two 4x4s overland from England to Mumbai via the Karakoram and the Himalayas. The team depart on 9th July, and hopefully return to the UK on 20th Sept. Hopefully they'll be using this blog to keep family and friends updated as and when they find Internet connectivity on their trip - making blog posts and uploading the odd photo. We 've also asked them to give us the lat/long of their posts as they make them so that we can automatically plot them on Google Maps and Google Earth (follow the Maps links on the top menu). The planned route is already up on both of these systems.
