The plan is to drive from the South East coast of England, up the East coast to the northern tip of Scotland, cross to the Orkney Islands and back down the West Coast.
Along the way I will be stopping to do various jobs on overland vehicles and meet up with like minded people. If you would like any work done on your overland truck or camper or just fancy a meet up get in touch.
Two of my goals are to see some of the Seal colonies around the UK coast and Puffins.
I absolutely love the scenery in Scotland and cannot wait to get up there with my camera. I also want to visit the 4 most extremities of the UK. North, South East and West.
You can see our rougth location on the map.
We left Hastings on the 18th February.
14th March. Still in Felixstowe.
Have been kept busy working on a future overland truck. Very similar to Matilda.
Follow me on Instagram, Face book and You Tube for the latest updates.
Finally left Felixstowe heading to Lowestoft for one reason. Its the most easterly point in the UK so had to be done. Does not seem to be much to do so will be leaving tomorrow.
Arrived in Great Yarmouth. Just because we can and it has a nice beach. The weather was a bit mixed but pleased to have a good reason to get the camera out. I much prefer some drama and colour to my photos.
Arrived in Louth to see Paul Jackman who needs some electrics in his T244 cab and additional electrics in the habitat.
I will be based in Haverhill for the foreseeable future building an overland truck for a customer.
You can follow the weekly build vlog on my youtube channel or head to the video page.
To circumnavigate Africa overland and produce an overland travel series to be shared free on You Tube.
Preparations are now starting. (May 2020) There are a number of modifications being made to Matilda. These will take place over the next year while. These include additional water tanks, reduction in chassis weight, larger black water tank, additional solar, an electric winch, gas oven and more.
Having recently returned from overlanding in Central Asia I now need to raise the funds for Africa.
