Hi all, my partner and I are planning to ship from Perth (Western Australia just in case you were wondering where Perth is..) to drive through China and into Mongolia, then continuing west to the Uk via whichever route works at the time, and if there is any money left maybe a bit of Africa too. Hoping to hit the ground in China (or Vladivostok if China gets too hard) early 2013 so still some time to pass. Just wondering if there are any other travellers out there considering something similar, maybe we can pool our information, particularly on the the red tape associated with taking your vehicle through China. There is plenty of info on the web with loads of tips but it's allways nice to talk to people doing it along with those whom have done it! We are taking a Patrol Ute with a camper on the back which we are in the process of fabricating, I am going to put some details of the build on the site as we progress for anyone interested. We have had plenty of great trips here in Aus and are trying to build our camper to suit what we like to do at home so it's a little bit of a comporomise considering we will be living in it for an extended period, but when we return it has to work for us here as well. Lots of the travel we like to do at home includes quite overgrown tracks so we are keeping the camper profile as small as we hope is practicle. Hopefully it'll work!! We currently manufacture camper trailers and thought we would move into ute slide on's aswell, so why not head across Asia for a road test, that's my excuse anyway. So if your thinking of something similar or have some pointers or suggestions drop us a line, cheers!
