Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Royal Geographical Society's Expedition Handbook (Paperback)
I was looking for a book with guideline on expeditions. My main concerns were vehicular and bicycle. While the book covers more type of expeditions that I ever though of, it give good, basic things to look for and advice that can be applied between the different methods.
Worth the money to me!
