Reunion 2016 Nepal

Small ad-hoc reunions of former EO staff have occurred over the years. Thanks to the efforts of Trish Burt, we had our first major reunion in Nepal over two weeks in October 2016.  A very enjoyable time was had by all.  These are links to the itinerary and a lead-up note from Tony Jones.
Tony Jones put on a bar-b-que at his house in Pokhara.  Speeches were given by Tony and Rob Rumball in what was one the few formal occasions during the reunion.  Tony reflected on the origins, ethos and people of Encounter Overland.  Rob recalled some of those who have sadly passed away.
