You’ve heard it here first. The official homecoming party for The Last Overland will be taking place between Folkestone and London on Saturday December 14th! We’ll be revealing more detail soon, but for now please save the date in your diary – particularly if you have a Land Rover.

It’s been three weeks since our last ‘Tales from the Road’, and what a three weeks it’s been… We’ve covered almost 2,500km since we last sat down to write in southern Thailand, crossing the length of beguiling Burma (Myanmar) and on to the breath-taking views and spine-rattling roads of north-east India.

We couldn’t have asked for a more extraordinary send-off for The Last Overland Team on Sunday. The convoy that formed behind the 64-year-old Oxford car set a new Singaporean record for the most Land Rovers ever gathered in one place (95!).

Ze wzruszeniem słuchałem wczoraj dwóch uczestników lądowania w Normandii, którzy odważyli się jeszcze raz skoczyć tam na spadochronach. Dla swoich poległych kolegów. Mając po 95 lat.

In 2019, one of the 20th century’s most iconic and challenging road journeys will be recreated by Grammar Productions for a landmark TV series.
