Day 6. Friday 7th August 1970 – England



Rod, Keith, Jim and Mick acquired their visas for Afghanistan. The rest of the day was spent rather quietly ending with a couple of pints late on in the evening.

Pre Expedition info:-

Prior to the expedition we visited the Royal Geographical Society to collect as much information as possible, maps at this time were more or less impossible to acquire and getting caught with a detailed map in some countries could get you arrested, so we spent many hours tracing maps. We also contacted other organizations for information and wrote many letter asking for food and other expedition supplies etc
