John Vincent - Africa -India - South America - USA

I started with Frontier in the early '70s and, after they went broke (whilst I was half-way across Africa, en route to Nairobi..!) I joined Hughes Overland/Intertrek/Asiaman and did a bunch of tours to Kathmandu,. I was "lent" to Siafu to run one of their trips from Nairobi to UK....but they went under and we spent a wonderful month visiting every game park in Kenya whilst waiting for a bailout from IATA...then I flew home and went out to South America where I spent about 4 years running the Rio/Bogota/Rio trips for Hughes/Treasure Tours........When they finally folded (by now I was getting pretty used to this..!!) I flew to US and joined Trekamerica for a couple of years..........Now retired and running a small horse farm in Florida.  Still in contact with quite a few of the drivers from the old days.....hope to have a re-union one of these days, if we can ever manage it......Would love to hear from any of the "punters" that endured my "leadership" all those years ago.......I've got some pics from South America, but only a few from my India and Africa trips..........Look forward to hearing from ya'......
