Two Jimnys around the world!

It's busy behind the scenes

It might not seem so busy on the Blog, Facebook or Twitter at the moment, but behind the scenes it's still very active.  Les is writing articles that will appear in magazines over the next month or two. He's sifting through the hundreds of photos that were taken by everyone who took part and we're busily preparing for the homecoming celebrations.

Here's a selection of more unseen photos .....

Les sets the scene for the next month or two on the blog

Hi everybody.  My body and mental timeclock has been trying to play catch-up ever since arriving back inthe UK. I am still not back to normal, well at least that’s what Itell my wife Vi when she wants something attended to around thehouse.  However, I can usually keep Vi at bay, but Maureen is anothermatter.  She phoned me this morning, it was like being poked with acattle prod.  I need you to write something for the blog and being toweak to argue I thought I had better get on with it.

Over the past months I have, through theBlog, given you some idea as to what has been happening as wehave travelled around the world. What I wrote was in the maingoverned by what time I had left after dealing with everything elsethat I had to do at the end of the day and at some point fallingasleep. But to be truthful what you have read about is but a smallpart of what we experienced, the people we come in contact with, thesituations we got ourselves into for one reason or another, the highsand lows of the journey, and the physical risk to myself when driving alone for anything up to 10 or 12 hours a day, day after day, to makesure that we kept on schedule. Full credit to Keith Twyford, RolandSpencer, Graham Higgins, Mike Bailey, Glyn Maher, and RogerWinkworth, as the going was just as tough for them as it was for me.

After Driving Pretty Well Every Day For

After driving pretty well every day for four weeks we finally arrived at our shipping agent at North Bergen just outside New York.  Sad that the journey has come to an end, but glad that we were going home to meet up with our family and friends. 

The fourth and final stage of our journey started when I met Glyn Maher and Roger Winkworth when they arrived at Vancouver July 22nd.  We left for Anchorage, a journey of 2200 miles and when we got there, we then turned around and travelled south along the Alaska highway to Calgary and the US border. We then went east to New York.  A total journey distance of 7,705 miles. The exacting and demanding pace of the driving continuously day after day has a draining effect on your body, so when we arrived at North Bergen we were pretty shattered and in need of some R&R. I have grown very attached to the Suzukis and was sad to see them being strapped down in the container for the last time.  I just hope the container arrives at Southampton as scheduled this time.  LesOriginal linkOriginal author: Les Carvall
