travels with my loo

tales of geriatric travels through Africa and Australia
HorizonsUnlimited description:

Two old people decided to buy a Land Cruiser and travel through Africa to Capetown and revisit the small mining town where they used to live on the Copperbelt in Zambia. When, to everyones surprise, they lived to tell the tale, they decided to drive to Australia... After that it was the turn of South America to put up with them. On the way things went wrong but with a mixture of grey hair, luck and sheer bloody mindedness they are still alive to tell the tale

In addition to giving advice, which you follow at your peril, giving directions, which you follow at your peril, they relate stories of mis-spent youth working in Africa, which you believe at your peril.

All proceeds will go to paying American tax (over which they have no choice) and to an African charity.
