The Old folks are off at last — Heathrow, United Kingdom

Our first decision was that we would be doing so much travelling on trains, buses and boats that it would be too cumbersome to have suitcases or very large backpacks with us. So we decided to go "Hand luggage" only. Mind you, Val's sense of direction is a little wayward, so we might venture off the beaten track from time to time. Try getting insurance for two OAPs for a trip for over 6 months and then mention that you want cover to include voluntary work in a zoo in Asia that may involve "construction work" in your application. Then we realised that by the time we'd packed our sleeping bags and waterproofs, our mosquito nets, and a mountain of pills for avoiding malaria, high blood pressure etc (to try to keep 2 OAPs alive for 6 months), and our marmalade sandwiches (for... We started planning the trip about 6 months ago and have been through the pain of voluntary work applications and passport renewals and booking flights here there and everywhere with airlines that you have never heard of.

And that was what Marvin Miller, the firebrand executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, told Flood. But backed by representatives from the various teams, Miller agreed to bankroll Flood’s case, retaining Arthur Goldberg, late of the Supreme Court, to handle it. Flood himself was undeterred by the inevitable blacklisting to come. Source: Old Life
