The Long Way Down

Well that was brilliant, wasn't it!?

Fans of The Long Way Round had to get out tonight... Ewan and Charlie did it again in 2007. This time, from Scotland to South Africa. If you missed tonight's premier in the theaters, you can still catch The Long Way Down on the Fox Reality Channel at 9PM, Saturday 8/2.

Check out the site here:

A great start to my birthday marathon!
