Re: Thailand to the UK by road

Sounds like a great adventure!!

A friend has done the Peking to Paris road rally a few times. This is the site http://www.endurorally.com/.

I don't know how helpful they would be but may offer some tips if good people running it. I'll ask my friend for any contacts.
