Those buses were amazing. My wife went overland from Nepal to London on one of those with a company called Topdeck back in 1990.

They went thru a whole lot of places you'd think twice about now, like Iran, Kashmir and the Khyber Pass, as well as Pakistan...

Hi Kiwi

More memory's for me. I was 30 miles up the road, near Singleton sitting in a loft for 3 days with 6 feet of water all around me.

Cheers
Dick
