Episode 1: Wherein Anand and Sarah win a place on the Mongol Rally

After a few years of trying, it has finally happened. In September, just as Sarah headed off to Uzbekistan for a month, Anand got the good news that we were accepted to the Mongol Rally! For those not in-the-know, the Mongol Rally is a charity event that sets 250ish teams to drive 10,000 miles from London to Ulaan Baatar, Mongolia. Teams’ cars can have a maximum of a 1 liter engine and must be under 10 years old. You choose your own route and ours preliminarily looks like this.

We are starting a blog about this for a couple of reasons.

  1. We thought our friends and family might be interested in our progress both preparing for the race and while we are in the field.
  2. To raise money! On this blog you will find a link to our cafe press store where you can buy cool shirts and other items, the profits from which will go to paying for the car, charity, and other expenses. We will also have a paypal donation site and I’m thinking of selling off some other stuff (mainly photography related), so stay tuned for that!

Ok, that’s pretty much the main two reasons. Please stay tuned for more developments as they arise! Also, please let us know if you have leads on any good, small cars located in the UK or have other fund-raising ideas
