THE EDITOR/Aidventures' Boss!
The editor, Tony Pritchard, has been involved with 4x4s since 1966, often using Series One Land Rovers for farm work and ‘exploring’ – which we now call greenlaning!
He conceived and edited ’4X4 &
Off Road Mart’ magazine, produced by Aceville in Colchester, before
launching ’4×4 Enthusiast’ which was sold to Traplet Publishing, who
sold it on to Waterways World (publishers of Total Off Road) who killed
it stone dead. Thanks, guys!
Tony then went on to edit World Off Road, before launching Overland Travel, which was developed from his Expedition Society website.
He has driven many
types of 4x4s, courtesy of the manufacturers and owned, Nivas, Series 1,
2 (SWB & LWB) and 3 (SWB & LWB Safari), 110, Range Rovers (V8,
200Tdi, V8/LPG), Suzukis, modified Toyota Surf and currently is
restoring his expedition prepared Land Rover Discovery 300Tdi. (shown below)

After a few years of on and off illness, I'm now more or less recovered and hopefully by 2018, I'll be fully recovered, so I'm looking at re-commencing Aidventures' Humanitarian aid trips with one to orphanages in Poland and/or Romania. So, if you're interested in a trip in Spring 2018, drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org (subject: Aidtrip). You'll need a car, minibus or 4x4 (if you want to go the more remote orphanages).
I can take one to three passengers in my own vehicle. (preferably one as co-driver).
Hopefully, the trip should only take one week.
We no longer take a load of unwanted items to the orphanages, but raise funds and take the staff to supermarkets/local shops to buy what they really need.
