PostSubject: Hello, just wanted to say....hello   Sat Nov 03, 2012 11:51 pm

Hi
I had a stand at the Overland Adventure show this year and was very impressed a how well organised it was for a first show and equally impressed at the book sales I had but ultimately the people who attended both traders and public were a good bunch I thought. So a bit about me.
I'm not new to travelling but new to the overland travel scene.
It took 20 years of motorcycle and travel obsession before I figured out I could combine the two. After some European and North American trips with friends, I headed out alone armed with a little experience in lots of things, no real deadlines and a destination somewhere East of Essex. Research has always seemed easier on the road, I've always found it can be quite daunting to be too informed.
A quarter centry of keeping a daily diary combined with reporting my travels from cassette message tape to blog, it also took 25 years to gain the courage to put these experiences into a book. In Search of Greener Grass, which I'm not promoting here, just happens to be a big part of my life.
Currently planning a trip to the Middle East in spring 2013.
I left on my last trip with a relative unawareness of the overland community that exists. A summer of shows, selling the book has inevitable connected me with an array of doers and achievers I had never heard of. It’s been an enlightening summer in England as much as any I have spent on the road.
Looking forward to meeting more here.

You found us! an official welcome from yours truly. cheers

Glad the show went well for you. I've always said there is a big crossover between 4x4's and bikes, ADVENTURE OVERLAND defintely confirmed that.

The Middle East is a big place, anywhere particular in mind?
