The road to Istanbul

We are currently sitting just inside the Turkish border where the insurance system is down and the guy running it is valiantly handling everything manually.

The journey here has not been withlut its troubles but weve met some great people and formed convoi exceptionel. Our humble band of mongol ralliers negotiated the launch party with all the style and grace you would expect of a screaming 4 year old.

But in all seriousness. Its been a blast and weve really enjoyed ourselves so far despite the long slogs between places.

Countdown to liftoff

It’s 3 days till we leave for our big adventure and we’re pretty much all set!

All we need is our Turkmenistan Letter of Invitation, fencing wire, rope, radios, rations, water, fuel, tools, sanity…

A big thanks to everyone who dressed up, came to see us off and signed the car. We will be thinking about you all when we are upside down in a ditch in Kazakstan leaking fluids from machine and bodily person.

We will be setting off on Friday the 13th (brilliant right?) and heading off to Dover to get the ferry to Calais. Then its off to Frankfurt and to the Glorious Peoples Republic of Adventuristan in Prague.

Good Luck Comrades!
