A charity fundraising drive from London, England to Saigon, Vietnam in a 1966 Porsche 912. The journey begins in London on September 1st 2010, ending seven dusty weeks later at the Rex hotel in... More > Saigon. Why? Inspired by the challenge and tempted by the prospect of adventure, yes. But most importantly convinced by the fantastic opportunity to raise funds for my favourite charity, the outstanding Mines Advisory Group (MAG) The trip is not part of an organised tour or rally, rather a self-conceived & planned solo car effort, with an intentional lack of support vehicles and backup in general. The essence of the challenge is to complete the drive in a classic 1960's Porsche. Any major modification to which, notably any deviation towards classic Landrover, would deduct from the challenge and therefore be considered as cheating ! The sole purpose of this event is to raise money for MAG - Please give generously, donations are being securely handled via our page on the Just Giving website.< Less

Leaving Saigon chronicles the Nguyen family's flight from North Vietnam in 1954 to escape the communist takeover and begin anew in Saigon. The family of nine began their new life in a house in Saigon... More > with a dirt floor and coconut leaf roof. Xuan, the oldest daughter, recounts her life from the rural North through the last stages of the Vietnam War and how it was to “grow up ugly” in a culture that was undergoing change. She worked for the Americans on Saigon’s giant Tan Son Nhut Airport, became involved in the black market, and married an American. Her relationship with the Americans ostracized her from her family and neighbors. The forty-year family journey goes from Nam Dinh to Saigon; from Kontum and Pleiku through the fall of Saigon, ten years’ of political prison, and escape to freedom by boat. Xuan’s peasant-to-American journey was one of personal trial, a new life, and changed fortunes. This is a story about a war, about adopting a new culture, and about friendship.< Less

This is the story of how a young American - that would be the author - psychologically survived the absurd waste of time, money and life that was the Vietnam War. In the spirit of full disclosure,... More > this is not a “What did you do in the war, Daddy” sort of book. This is a “How I best remember getting through it” sort of book. To that end, the tongue engages the cheek just enough to attempt to take the edge off the deadly seriousness of the whole thing. Everything told here is true and happened in the manner described. I should point out, however, that I report events as if I were Pogo – Walt Kelly’s brilliantly conceived observer of the ebb and flow of things. Through Pogo’s eyes things always looked ridiculous.< Less
