Hello Robert and Sue, a reply at last! I am from the UK, from Birmingham in the Midlands. It is along way for me to go, but just round the corner for you, I think! I wonder how many people are in the group?

Hi John, My wife Alex and I are from Cambridgeshire just a tad flat. Wer'e looking forward to our trip in April. We were up the peak district last weekend to get a bit of up and down around Froggat edge and Edale. Are you on Facebook?

Regards,

Pete & Alex 

Hi John, Have you got your China visa yet?

Hello Pete and Alex, yes I  have my visa - I filled in the form online, printed it out and made an appointment in Manchester. The "appointment" took all of five minutes, and five days later I recieved it in the post. Have you got yours yet? 

Yes I am on facebook (John McGeough), but do not use it much. Look forward to meeting you, where are you flying out from? I'm going from Birminham to Dubai, and then to Beijing, at least I think I am!

Hi John, there's loads of you on facebook mate. If you look for me, Pete Gosnell, my pic is me in a cammo jacket and fur hat in the snow. Then I can PM you my email and telephone number.

Cheers,

Pete

Pete, I can only find five people  with your name, one is wearing a hat but not in the snow...any more clues? 

If you search for me, it says I work for MG Rover, and live in Bournville, Birmingham 

We're keeping an eye out  http://www.theweathernetwork.com/fourteenday/chxx0008/table?ref=tabs_14day_table

In our daily newspaper the other day (Daily Mail) there were reports of Tanks and Soldiers in Tianamen Square and a coup going on but the govt had suppressed any internet activity going out of China so there were no confirmed reports. Has anyone else heard anything?

There is lots of stuff on Youtube about it, most say it is just a rumour, but lots of long knives behind closed doors.

Hi John
Good to hear from you. We are guessing there are currently 13 on the tour as there are three spaces left and I think the maximum was 16. I am not sure that we are any closer than you. We have a 10 hour flight to Hong Hong and then a 3 hour flight to Beijing. We are looking forward to it have just bought all the gear but not sure whether to dress for cold, warm or hot - it could be any of the above I guess. Look forward to meeting you over Beijing duck! Robert and Sue.

I checked with Exodus and you were right, there are 13 in our group, 6 men and 7 women, some in their 20's, most in their 40's and 50's! I just reached 55 so might be the "old codger" of the group!
