Just come across this blog. Anyone else following this?!

Check out the mods he's done in the van - heat exchanger from engine coolant to heat water, running shower etc...

Such a nice van!!

I've not been following that, but shall from now on - thanks for the heads up :ok

I've just finished reading this though: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Long-Whining-Ro ... 0957198000 It's not a bad read at all, the family does the trip in a T25.

This is brilliant! Great read. I have just read their blog re trying to get into/out of China and the perils (not least of which are financial!) involved. The couple have set up a 'Kickstarter' fund page, and heres a link (the short video in the link explains much better):

This is the sort of journey most of us can only dream of from the comfort of our sofas. I for one can only admire their fortitude, and will stump up a few of our English pounds. Have suggested that they get on this post too.... :-)
