All Aboard!

A second-hand Greyhound Bus has just left London, heading
for Australia - ETA about THREE MONTHS. Cost per ticket:- £3,000.
Can you imagine a load of RR's/Romfters being stuck on a bus....
for three soddin' months, putting tents up at night, eating, washing,
sleeping and manking together?? - with the occasional Hotel/Motel
stop-over thrown in along the way!
An overland bus journey of this magnitude would surely end in
murder and mayhem....or could us RR's/Romfters co-exist happily,
while singing "The wheels on the bus go round-and-round!!", for
about ninety days. I realise that most of us have *dual identities*,
and we all have many differences of opinion on stuff, but casting
aside all these differences of opinion on Gayness/Straightness/
Miserableness/Fatness/Thin-ness/Religion/Creed/Colour/Favourite
Sexual Fantasy etc here in Cybersville - d'you think you would
survive the trip in the real world?

It certainly would be a F***ing interesting Journey!!

ALL ABOARD!!

Australia is on the bus map
A BUS service has been launched linking Britain with Australia. A one-way ticket for the 12-week trip - which will visit 20 countries including Iran, Pakistan, India, Nepal, China, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia - costs £3,750.

The journey is said to be 50 times more environmentally friendly than a Boeing 747 flight from London to Sydney. There is one flight from East Timor to Darwin in the Northern Territory, but the entrepreneur Mark Creasey, 37, is looking for a ship to ferry the bus across.

Nearly 4,000 quid for a bus ticket? Ken Livingstone would love the idea.
You could get a return 1st Class ticket on an airline for that, and not have someone horrid and with B.O. sitting close beside you; all a bit Crocs and veggie burger.
Sounds like a scene from 'Priscilla Queen of the Desert'.
As for everyone on here getting along - most of us are too ffing old for that kind of malarky.

About as quick as the ones we used to get to Collingrad from Stoke in the olden days.
That was a journey and a half.
With the busses doing 0-60 in about a week and trying to "race" each other along the dual carriageways holding everything up behind them!!!
What a laugh!!.......
