Talking Meet Me In Person

Hi Guys
Sorry it's been a while, since I last checked in, plans are underfoot for another trip in a few months time to a place that I've never been before, details to follow.

In the meantime, for anyone who may be based in or visiting England, read on...
I'll be in Plymouth (England NOT Massachusetts) giving a talk about my travel exploits and mishaps.

I'm helping the TRF with a fundraising evening, details are below

Millbrook Football Club, nr Torpoint, Cornwall PL10 1EN
Sat 12th Feb 7.00pm - 11.00pm, welcome from 6.00pm
Also for your delectation and delight:
Swampy, of KTM custom builder Marsh Performance, on motorcycle modification and tuning.
Bikes will be on show, including Swampys Super Motard race bikes and the new KTM 690 Safari Adventure

Ticket price 5. Food & drinks available on site. Tickets available on the door, subject to availability - they recommend booking if you are travelling any distance.

I'll be giving two talks, the first will be a shortish one about how I got started with bike travel and then the second talk will be "The Ultimate Trail" searching the continents of the worlds for the ultimate off-road trail and the adventures I've had along the way.
Plenty of time for chat, a few drinks and questions as well, so if any of you are interested, do come along.

Wish I lived a little closer!

Tiffany,
Now that sounds like a talk worth attending-wish I lived a little closer. I just found your postings today for the first time and I look forward to reading about your past and future travels.

I haven't read enough about you yet to fully understand who you are and what you are doing other than the obvious travel adventures? I will try to remedy that in the next week or so. Take care and drive safe!

Thumb Hello from Turkey

Hi Guys a quick heads up for those who subscribed last year to say that I'm on the road once more, and this time I'm on someone else's BMW.

Skibum, if you're still there, yes, I do remember promising you a pic from St Johns, so rather belatedly here it is- also another look at Thelma, my R80GS, as you'll be seeing more of Beryl the 1200GS over the next few months


The next journey is a return to my old stomping ground from two years ago, the 'Stans and Central Asia going to China, Tibet and Everest Base Camp. Look out for the Ride Report and enjoy.

Soph, I've got the Ride Report started on here somewhere - just search for Tiffany and Tibet, it should show up. Thanks Cole for being my PA.

though in truth the GS belongs to GlobeBusters and it's part of my job package, as my brother said - "you've got the Kick Ass Boots and now they've put you on a Bad Ass Bike as well -what the hell were they thinking??"

It's a good job that there's someone to keep me on track and remind me of promises...

The moose in Newfoundland, to set the scene, I was wild camping near some trees and I'd heard some loud noises early in the morning (read the full story on page 9 of this RR) The moose was between Thelma and my tent



By the time, I got my camera out, it had wandered away a bit, and was acting camera shy

I had to track down the hurricane pictures, and here they are



In the morning, it looked like this



and when I got closer, I could see







I can't believe how lucky I was to get out of my tent in time, and then when I saw Thelma in the morning with this perfect V of fallen trees around her as if I'd parked her like that. She definitely has a guardian angel

He seems to be quite adept at that, now I'm off lost in one of his. Y'all are killin' my productivity.
Anyway, enjoy
