JOHN LOVEJOY aka “LOVIE” is a wanderer by nature, is the mastermind behind this recklessly ambitious trek. He always has big ideas and manages to scrape by on shoestring budgets … but Trabant Trek proves a bit daunting even for him. As team leader he is responsible for assembling the multinational, multifarious crew, finding the plastic Trabants, deciding the route and just about everything in-between. Even after everything is in place he struggles to keep the haphazard journey on track, on time and on budget. He’s often criticized for being disorganized and is rarely acknowledged as the team’s leader. If something goes wrong all fingers point to Lovie for someone to blame. He often wonders if he hasn’t bitten off a mite more than he and his motley team can chew.
