John Conway. Himalayas by bus. The background.

The name of the guy who trigger all this off for us was James Lovelock whom we met in Norway and took caving. He was the author of Life and Death Under-Ground. Below is a pic of him with taking photos with some of our lads on a caving trip. In those days taking underground pics was a bit long winded. James mention to use that while on an climbing expedition to the Himalayas he had seen cave entrances at very high altitudes and the teams exploits of traveling over land sounded exciting. BTW, I did have this book but I lost it but I’ve now managed to buy it on Amazon for £8.49
