What the rest of the team DIDN'T know about ........

...... before Les left on his crazy journey.

The journey is broken up into stages. Les is the only one driving the entire journey, for the rest of the journey he's joined by various other old geezers. All these old geezers have got together on numerous occasions, discussed what sections they want to drive, trained together in the art of tent erection, first aid etc (we still wonder if they'll give each other the kiss of life when it comes to it) packed the Jimnys, test driven the Jimnys, chewed the fat over the whole project and until the night before Les left no one (not even me -Maureen) knew he had 26 days where there were no other old geezers driving with him. It was just Les on his own!! He had kept that very quiet, I had been asking him for probably two weeks prior to them leaving who was doing each stage and he kept telling me it was all covered.

Hi Guys My Apologies For Not Making

Hi guy's, my apologies for not making contact sooner, but what with the excitement of finally seeing an end to preparation and actually starting the journey, focusing on getting things right at the beginning I haven't had time to get something typed up for you. However I have been told by Maureen that if I didn't do something pretty quick I will be in trouble, trust me you don't mess with Maureen, so here I go.I think you are ahead of me in as much as Maureen and Keith have feeding the web site with up to date info so what I have to say will fill in the gaps so that you get a picture as to what has been going on. Sunday was absolutely perfect, I had hoped that there would be a good turn out but it was far better than I expected. I tried to make sure  I said hello to everybody, but if I missed anybody out please except my apologies.  Thanks also to Vi my lovely wife, Maureen, Keith and Penny, Alun, Guy, Robert, Trevor, Alan, Glyn, Roger, Graham, Mike, Roland,Keith, Julian and everybody that helped me bring the project together.

Well guys I started this article with the full intention of bringing you up to date but it is 12.30 and I am having trouble keeping my eyes open. We are driving to Gdansk in Poland tomorrow from Leipzig, about 650 kilometres so I had better get some sleep. More soon.LesSomewhere in Poland
