Hello from Ulan-Batar!
This journey would not have been possible without help from a huge number of people. Peter and Dave's mechanical workshop was very useful to us, as was the mechanics advice I got from Kane, the groundsman at Cathedral Grammar School in Christchurch. I'd like to thank my friend Slanderpuss for setting it up, and my former boss Dirk Gildenhuys for letting me have the time off work! We'd like to thank Steve from village auto-repairs, for servicing the car, and we'd especially like to thank Dave and Michelle Clarke, for selling us such a magnificent vehicle. We'd like to thank Karen and Maria, and everyone else at the Children's Trust for their support. We also owe a great deal to Dave the keyman from Crawley, and Halfords Redhill, for the free equipment they gave us. Last but not least, we'd like to pass on a huge amount of thanks to our families and wags, who have all been unbelievably supportive and rescued us when we realised we had nothing prepared on the night before the rally. Extra special thanks must go to Pernelle, for looking up all sorts of things for us along the route, and sending us some trully inspirational morale boosting messages in our darkest moments.
We are now heading off to the official finish line party. We will try to remember this one...
