London Bombay Cebu - The Travelers
Jim Laurel
You might say that Jim's yen for travel is hereditary. As a child, he spent most of his time roaming the globe with his family, living in Europe in Asia for extended periods during the 1970s. Along the way, he picked up a passion for photography, which today translates into digital media in all its forms. Jim has spent the better part of the last decade building Internet software, most recently at Microsoft's headquarters in Redmond, Washington. He is looking forward to combining his passion for the Internet with digital media during the London Bombay Cebu Live Expedition.

Karin Corea-Laurel
A devoted mother, Karin is also an accomplished press photographer. She is anxious to try her hand at digital media during London-Bombay-Cebu, so keep an eye out for her images! When she isn't driving Land Rovers around the world, Karin enjoys gardening back home in Woodinville, WA.

Kirsten Laurel
Kirsten is an 11-year old 6th grade student at Wilder Elementary in Woodinville, Washington. In her spare time, she loves to play with her friends, draw, paint, play with her cat, and read. On the trip, she is most excited about skiing in Switzerland during Christmas, camping in the Sahara, going to the jungles of India, seeing wild animals, the pyramids in Egypt, and looking for fossils in Morocco. Editors note: Watch for Kirsten's dispatches during the trip!

Connor Laurel
Connor is 8 years old and attends 3rd grade at Wilder Elementary in Woodinville. He is wild about anything that flies, and gadgets of all sorts - just like his Dad! Connor is an avid skier and is looking forward to checking out Zermatt during Christmas. He is also looking forward to seeing wild animals on our game drives in India. He'd love to try his hand at driving the Land Rover, but that will have to wait a few years!

Our trusty steed, CT44
Originally built for the US Team in the 1997 Camel Trophy event in Mongolia, our Land Rover Discovery (CT44) is equipped with a raised air intake, alloy skid plates, 9000lb Warn winch, dual-stage fuel filtration, dual Optima batteries and a full internal roll cage from Safety Devices. Six Hella driving lamps augment the standard lights, as well as a work lamp on the rear. The cargo area is enclosed by a steel cage to prevent items from flying around in the event of an accident, as well as enhance security. The suspension is standard Land Rover with heavy duty springs and additional helper springs placed inside the main coils at the rear. The roof rack was built by Safety Devices for the Camel 97 event to carry a kayak and 2 mountain bikes, but we have modified it to carry the 2 aluminum Zarges boxes, 60 litres of fuel in 10 litre jerry cans, a second spare tyre and recovery equipment. Power is provided by the 300 Tdi, Land Rover's indomitable turbodiesel motor. Tyres are 245/75 R16 BF Goodrich All Terrains on standard alloy rims.
