I know what you are thinking……..Who would be so crazy to even entertain such an undertaking?!
Well……that’s where we come in, so let us introduce ourselves as Matt Gault and Wayne Mills-Kidals…two friends from Lincoln who have an undeniable thirst for adventure and all things risk-laden but at the same time, we know a good cause when we see one! We hope to take on the challenge of the Mongol Rally and have armed ourselves with a Suzuki Jimny 1300cc as being just the tool for the job!
18 Days to go!

Well theres 18 Days left before we set off, and we are nearly there with our preperation work
We have Kindly been donated an airbed to keep us slightly comfy along the way, thanks to Aerobed
Also thanks to the comapny I work for Timico who also made a donation towards the cause.
We have a Uk mobile number which we will update before we go where you can ring us at local mobile rate and hopefully were going to be fully trackable with a GPS navigation system, track our progress with 10minute waypoint updates...
If anybody is interested you can attend the Mongol Rally launch part at Goodwood Race track, its free to go and should be a good crack. To find out details on the Launch Pary check it out here

we now have full GPS tracking facility on our jeep - you can see to the left a page called " TRACK US BY GPS " click on there and this will load our tracking page, make sure you go full screen to get a better view.
Obviously until we set of there will probably only be test runs, but when we set off you can see our exact location! keep tracking us daily :-)
