When I started in my area of work about 35 years ago I thought it was some kind of Hollywood lifestyle but then I realised one power station is the same as the next and every time I extend the trip by two or three days it comes out of my annual leave allowance. That might not seem so bad but when you're away all the time it's not easy explaining to your wife that you'd sooner spend a couple of days extra away than come home and spend that time with her.

Thought I would post up some links to short videos we did after the trip.

We are now planning Nambusters III for Feb/March next year, which will be almost all off-road throughout northern Vietnam, from Hanoi to the Laos border then across north east to the Chinese border.
