We finally have a car! eBay has found us a tidy little Fiat Seicento Sporting. Well, tidy except for the front of it. It only has 34,000 miles on the clock and there’s a fish sticker in the rear window – two plus points for reliability, hopefully.

It’s ‘Sporting’ too, so we should get a good time round The Nürburgring.



Whilst browsing the net I came across this rather inspirational painted car. I thought I’d share it with you.


Press coverage

We were featured in January’s issue of Truck and Driver. Dave looks twice the size of me. Click on the below image to view it larger.

A possibility:

If Dave and I are to adhere to the rules set out by the Mongolian government’s age restrictions and The Adventurists’ capacity limits, along with respecting our press links (Truck and Driver magazine) desire for a commercial vehicle. Then the above vehicle seems to be the only one for us. Does anyone know of one going cheap?


Afternoon Tea with Colonel John Blashford-Snell

On Saturday Dave and I popped down to Bristol to attend one of the official 'Tea and Cake rally dos'. The Adventurists brought along Sir John Blashford-Snell, one of the greatest explorers (and story tellers) of the 20th Century. He was hilarious and very inspiring. Warning us of the prevalence of the plague and lack of veggie food in deep Mongolia. I'm currently rethinking my vegitarian-ism.

We also met two teams that we're sure to stay in touch with. Here are their team pages:
