We received this news bit from Nick Taylor in Colorado, who is a fellow in the RGS:
Vehicle-dependent overland travel byÂ Graham Spark, David Palmer, Mike Hingley, Sam Watson
Â· Workshop (York)
Â· Saturday 23 May at 9.00
With the growth in interest in vehicle-dependent overland travel, a workshop will take place where desert guides, expedition navigators and medics and experienced overlanders will give talks on how an interested traveller can equip their vehicle and plan their own trip to a variety of locations, whether a run down to the Pyrenees or a drive to Cape Town.
There will be a small selection of trade stands, a display of example overland vehicles and a programme of lectures and demonstrations throughout the day.
Refreshments will be available including a specially commissioned
Overlander real ale for the non-drivers!
Venue:Â Terrington Hall School, York.
Cost:Â Â£5 per vehicle.
