Explanation of pictures

He is sending regular picture and text updates to this web page via his mobile phone. The picture below shows PC contributor Sam Glover at Heathrow Airport, shortly before they took off for The Gambia.

For more info on the trip go to the chat forums, click on General Chat, and look for the thread 'Rather Foolish Practical Classics Road Trip.'
