Hi all,

I've been posting a few updates about out big trip from London to Cape Town via Central Asia.

For those of you who are new, my partner and I are driving out modified Troopy around the world. I'm paraplegic so it adds a whole new dimension to such an epic trip, lots of extra challenges to say the least.
We are trying to raise funds and awareness for spinal cord injuries Australia. You can donate on our blog.

The day has finally come and we've shipped the Troopy to the UK to begin our adventure. We are flying out to meet it in about a week.
You can read more about the final preparations on our blog.

Thanks all

Sounds good, rb30e, and your blog will be useful for others who have some disability yet don't let that stop them from travelling.

I like those old people who go from town to town, and spend the nights camped in hospital car parks, just in case. Now, that is class.

Seeing a troopy going into a container brings back many great memories of our trip.

Hope you have a great time and that the medication issues have been sorted.
