#1

Chris and his family were at Beaulieu over the weekend and he was officially 'waved off' on his amazing adventure to Tokyo. Sadly he is not being accompanied by other 7s but he has found companions to join him on parts of the journey. The trip begins on Wednesday.

He has asked me to post up some info. Anyone fancy joining him?

My Russian wingman  Ilya,  booked to do Moscow to Novosibirsk!(14 days). Then Will Leith for 14 days until Chita! After that I have a co-pilot seat for a week or so from Chita until Vladivostok.( 7-10 days). If you or anyone you know,  fancies  a serious 2019 Austin Seven adventure ( austin7 friends perhaps? ) spread the word!!

I saw Chris and the car at Beaulieu at the weekend and it sounded great, it’s going to be an amazing trip. I’m sure we all wish him a safe and enjoyable trip.

I just love an adventure - this one has been very hard to find out more about, looks to be on track now though.

Anyone near Hull got a really good pump they can donate?

My only worrys for chris is he doesn't properly now some of the parts on the car.

I handed him a tray of parts on loan at beaulieu to cover many problems he may have on the trip.

When he discribed his electrics, it sounded like he has a plevin 12v converter. Huh

Very fragile the one I had 25 years ago.

Well, there is no fun in a road trip unless something goes wrong.

Only wish I had the time to join him, that's what tracy chummy was built for.

Tony.

I'm not aware of Chris publishing a detailed itinerary but this is the map he had on display at Beaulieu.
