On the P&O ferry on the way home - Bilbao to Portsmouth. In a marvelous cabin to ourselves and a welcome hot shower. We've done over 5,000 miles since we started and I've been very impressed with both Land Rovers. Only on Day 1 did we have small fuel leak and a small electrical problem. Apart from that, both vehicles have performed faultlessly.
It's been a long and hard trip, but very rewarding and enjoyable. Having driven the Monaco Grand Prix circuit in my Land Rover and sat down having a cup of tea with our Patron, Sir Stirling Moss among the highlights. It was also good to achieve our objective. I have learned a lot about what needs to be done for our African attempt. As a team we have got to know each other well, that I would now call friends.
Was it a successful trip? I think definitely yes. On that point I would like to thank all our sponsors, the UK team of Jon and Steve and Mac and the road team. Many thanks, bring on Africa.
