In the begining -- of our second Trans Asia trip
Well in the beginning was our first Trans Asia trip in 1975. This is the beginning of our second Trans Asia trip in 1977. We had learnt a lot for the first trip and hence this was easier to organise and we had less concern about the choice of vehicle. The trip was to be run by Pete Dryer and Ivan Hurst, me, again. This time we were not working for the same company or in the same region of Great Britain. Pete was working and living in East Anglia and I had returned to work with Percy Bilton Ltd in North London. I was living on site in an old AEC underfloor engined coach, whilst I was converting it to a motorhome. The AEC was not going to be the vehicle we were planning to take to Asia.
