No, how, weird, I don't know why I have no pictures of Slovakia because it was incredibly beautiful and we spent 2 nights in it - one sleeping in a car at a semi-dodgy truck stop (are there any other kind?) and one camping by a lake in a bizarre Butlins-without-the-chalets hoilday camp where Slovakian pop music blared all night long and it was unbeliveably hot.


Ah yes, my mate from the convoy has some:
Slovakian countryside

Lake Zaluzice (my spelling may be wrong).

Right, next time I'll try and incorporate mudcatters into the route plan!

Ethiopia! Wow. I am mightily impressed. I hadn't even considered Africa because it just seems even more scary than the Eurasian routes. How did Ethiopia go?

I'm planning to do the same journey again next year but in a Citroen Dyane next time, possibly pimped up to 4WD...

BUT the biggy is in 2009... I'm setting off around the world in a car with a sub 1 litre engine. I don't have the car for that yet - that will involve some work. We're still trying to work out the logistics but we have the Ireland - Mongolia bit under control, we have contacts in Korea, possibly in Panama, and definitely in New York. We just have to see how we'll journey through the Americas.

I have the rally bug and I have it bad.

Kate-

I especially like the fact that you survived this adventure and have reported back. You know, there was a high probability that your little Nissan would have ended upside down in the bottom of some dry river bed, or cannibalized for spare parts by the local banditoes.

Now that you're more seasoned, would you consider doing it again or is it Ethiopia next?

Cheerily,
Charley Noble, who has done that in Ethiopia

This time it's different. If I had know it was you, Kate, who had started the thread I would have opened it the first time. As a latecomer, I just can say glad you're back and thanks for the fine photos. You're making me envious.

Should you feel the urge to take a puppy with you next time, Jack is presently with me after a short burst in rehab. So far, he's doing OK, apart from a tendancy to look wistfully at the gin. At least he smells better. I'm sure I could find him a bag to put his fairy costume and his new jumper in.

Hullo there, I'm back.

Yup, we did it. 33 days across France, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Russia and Western Mongolia until we reached UB. We were 11 of those days in Western Mongolia driving across the north of the country on no roads, through rivers, in sand, and over mountains. Rather tough but unbelievably amazing.

And so I'm back and hating being back. I'm already planning next year's rally. I haven't been this happy or so relaxed in a very long time, so the sooner I can get away again the better.

Thanks for the support - we're still gathering in our sponsorship money but we've already lifted over £2000 and hope to get more.

Here are some photos:

Have you watched that Ewan McGreggor and Charlie Boorman Documentary - the Long way round... may get some usefull tips? Besides watching a lovely Ewan getting even more dashing the more unkempt (something about wild lookin men) he gets, it's a good watch. (They did something similar on Bikes). Ate things like Sheeps 'testimonials' broth and did Mongolian wrestling.

I figure, you should really get your Mongolia throat singing up to scratch now Fibs, best obtained probably after a few feckinirishwhiskeys... and perfected after the sheeps testimonials.

Take Mosquito repellant!
Will keep an eye on the blog spot...

All the best

Just the sort of daft things I used to get involved in for charity and I am full of admiration for all taking part. There is always an element of risk involved in any such venture which may test the ingenuity of the adventurers and I wish them all a safe and fun journey. _GIVE GENEROUSLY FOLKS it is for charity

Hi Andrea - your husband sounds like he had a fantastic sense of adventure. I'm so, so sorry that he's gone. Sounds like he took some of the route we might be on - we're definitely going through Kyrghzstan. I can barely spell, let alone pronounce Kyrghyzstan.

Yeah, we've been warned that border guards and police basically expect bribes, but we were told to play dumb to see if we could get away with it rather than pay up, otherwise they'll be hitting every car in the 'rally' (not really a rally cos it's not a race and there's no support vehicles) for quick cash fixes.

One of my teammates (the one I've not yet met) wants to bring his guitar, so there may be impromptu border performances to wow the gurads. Apparently this has worked before!

If only we had diplomatic immunity...sigh. I hope an Irish passport and a my female charm (ha!) is the next best thing.

My recently departed husband would have been applauding you!
The first jaunt he did was a drive (with me and the kids) from just south of Jo'burg to Nottingham. We did it quickly in about 4 months.

Several years ago, after a dire trip flying from Siberia to Kyrghyzstan, which took 24 hours, he bought a 1983 1.8 Scirocco-engined VW Golf, that had just been imported from Germany to Bishkek, and used it to drive back to Kemerovo, across the Steppes. He ran it for a year in Russia on Kyrghyz plates, but then had to drive it back to Bishkek as he was only allowed a year without re-registering it. He then, for several years, paid a guy he knew there $100 a year to look after it, and kept nipping back when he could for ski trips and the like, and to give the car a run. Shortly afterwards he went to work in Northern China and thought it would be a good idea to try and import it, as he didn't like the choice of pool cars they were being offered. Unfortunately the Chinese said it was too old. He had planned to drive it over the mountains and through Kashkar, on the old Silk Route and over to Shenyang. However he hired a driver and took it to the border, visited Kashkar, and then did the rest by public transport.
He only went back another one time to visit his Golf in Bishkek, and then sadly decided he had to sell it. He ended up getting more for it than he had originally paid.
A year or so later he took his own car over to Bosnia so that he could load all his stuff into it at the end of the project, not have to pay to transport it, and also to have a good holiday on the journey both ways as well. Of course he managed to wreck its sump up a mountain, but he still got it down and repaired ok.

Good luck with your journey, and have a wonderful time. Just learn patience and diplomacy...you will need plenty of it at times. Ian managed to get away with all sorts of motoring offences when he was actually working in Bishkek (in the pre-Golf days) because the lucky beggar managed to get diplomatic immunity!

Andrea

So, apart from donations, have we thought about other stuff you'll need on the trip?

People who have travelled similar barren wastes tell me that their passage was made easier by toting a lot of small stuff - like badges/pins (in our case, little pins of the Welsh flag), or gift soaps, and other bits and bobs like that. When someone is in a position to help you out on the road, a little gift gesture seems to pay back dividends.

Who's making Mudcat badges these days ... ?
