Gunther Holtorf's 23-year road trip
Just saw this on bbc website:

Back in 1989, as the Berlin Wall fell, Gunther Holtorf and his wife Christine set out on what was meant to be an 18-month tour of Africa in their Mercedes Benz G Wagen. Now, with more than 800,000km (500,000 miles) on the clock, Gunther is still going.

Saw that posted elsewhere - what an amazing trip. And an amazing vehicle too - no major breakdowns from the G-Wagon. Pity he is now travelling alone after losing his wife.

I think thats it, as the canadian photographer says in the video, he has done this under the radar, no blogs, no websites etc.

On the other hand these folk have been going even longer in a toyota
