This is it!
Below is the (rough) route that we will be taking, roughly 16,000km from the UK to Mongolia.
It doesn’t look so bad when you zoom right out!
We start in Goodwood (UK) on 14 July, not before a mad 2 day sprint across Europe to Prague for the ‘Czechout Party’ (European rally launch).
Depending on what state we wake up in, we leave Prague on the morning of the 16th July, with 350 other teams, all heading across the world in whatever direction makes sense. All going well* we will arrive in Ulaan Bataar on 24 August, 6 weeks later.
It would be great to hear of any suggestions of things we should checkout east of Czech Republic, so if you have more of a clue than us (which is highly likely) please post them below!
*NB – Rhys: No matter what happens, any adventure in this territory should be interesting, just as long as we don’t die. Should that eventuate, I want it to be known that all my worldly belongings (1 x XBox 360 with 3 games) are left to the bloke at the Seddon train station who sells newspapers every morning. Rain, hail or shine that bloke is on the job – got a lot of time for you newspaper man!
