Hi there and thank you for the ad to your forum!

I am an overlander/expeditioner based near London , England. I have a modified Landrover Discovery 3 (LR3 to you colonial chaps!).

As to experience... I spent five years in the British Army so picked up the bug for travelling and "living out of your backpack" from there. My first major overland trip was whilst in the army.

31 years ago!

14 days touring through Morocco to the Sahara desert and back in a couple of old series landrovers.

I have toured through Europe (to the Dalmatian coast and back three times), the alps, through France, Norway, Corsica (a truly beautiful gem of a place with amazing roads and scenery - and about 500 villages not accessible by road) and all over the UK. I have a trip planned for Croatia again in about two weeks .

I'm 50 next year so looking to do a long trip across Europe next year and looking for ideas as to destination!

Love the youtube channel by the way folks!

Hello and welcome from Norfolk. Looking forward to meeting you at some point.
Hi Roger!

I am Woking in Surrey (thought it would be easier to say London knowing this is a global site).

Were you at Kelmarsh bud?

Will be at the LRO at Peterborough and always up for a meet and a beer! :sunglasses:

No forgot Kelmarsh actually thought it was this weekend for some reason. 90% sure I will be going to Peterborough but 100 % will be going to the overland show.
Billing is this weekend but I will not be there.

OK pal, will see you at one of those!
