I've been thinking...
This is one of the longest (maybe the longest) trip done so far by the club.
Would those on this trip be prepared to pay for a trip-specific WPC polo shirt for this trip?
On further thought...
Maybe, considering the "epicness" (is there such a word?) of the trip, we might find a trip subsidy contributing towards the cost of the polo shirts is a reasonable request?? ;) ;)

Or on an even further thought, I do have a contact to do a "fishing" style shirt (short, long sleeve or a wife beater ;) ) with our vehicles, names etc...……...

cool. email     a(dot)Szentessy(at)gmail(dot)com    me a couple of pics (the larger the size the better) and I'll send them off. Graham, the WPC logo as well if you have it please.

Also, what wording would we want?? Names?? all that kinda stuff. Design is done by my mate but direction from us. If we get the basics down first, it's easier.

Now that I'm not going to be away at this time, I am very interested in this trip.

Will anyone be towing a camper or RTT/swagging it?

Cheers

Yeah, that sounds like a plan, or maybe a pub more central, you know how badly those southerners throw the toys outta the pram when they gotta travel to the better side of the world...... ;D ;D
