The Countdown Has Started

I'm in Bristol writing this pondering how I am going to get my mountain of luggage into the taxi at 4.00am. The production company have given me a few more details, and for those who are familiar with The Long Way Round where Claudio, the glamourous cameraman has his own GS motorbike and rides alongside and even more off-road than Charlie and Ewan - well, mine is going to be a lower budget production with Trevor the cameraman perched behind me riding pillion with his camera.

He obviously hasn't looked at the pictures of what happened to the last bloke to ride pillion with me. In fact poor Ian's shoulder is permanently disfigured.
