Re: 1 4 Shenstone...

Thanks Wally

this story has been on the LR forums for a few days so I had spotted it, but thanks for looking out for me

there is a quote on that story that's not right

The Darien Gap - an area of mountains and jungle between Panama and Colombia - is the only section that cannot be driven through
in fact even the BBC say in a linked story

It was only in 1960 that anyone managed to cross the Darien Gap by car - in a Land Rover dubbed The Affectionate Cockroach and a Jeep. It took nearly five months, averaging just 200m per hour
I call that Jeep / Land Rover - honours even (sort of like Mac/PC or Oly/Canon)
