Last week I got my hands on a second hand copy of the book Overland to India by Gordon G May. Gordon drove his, then 55 year old Royal Enfield, from the UK to the southern tip of India. It is a great source of inspiration and preparation since the route I have in mind is very similar to the route Gordon took back in 2008.
To my surprise this book actually has a written message and autograph of Gordon, dated from 2013. I hope that poor Derek didn’t lose this book by mistake or that it was thrown out by his overly worried partner, due to his midlife-plans. But in case the past owner holds no more value to this inspirational book, I can safely say it is on good hands now! Let’s do this!
