A World of Yurt

A couple of years ago we made a pact that when we had all finished our degrees and were finally free of commitments, we would take part in the epic adventure that is the Mongol Rally. We wanted to do it right and make sure what we were doing actually helped people, which is why we chose to do it with Charity Rallies. Well time has flown by and here we are, signed up and everything.

You' d think that with two years to prepare for this we would be pretty much ready to go now. In fact we haven't got a clue where to begin! Never fear though, with enough support and many days of bashing our heads together, we will be on that start line with a generous sum of donations behind us.

Four young men from Kent with the shared goal of helping people and having fun along the way.

After our prolonged stay in Almaty we set out for Kyrgyzstan with thoughts of mountain lakes and snow capped peaks, not to be disappointed. After a tedious border crossing we began to snake our way up into the Tian Shian mountains and set up camp at one of the trips best spots, in a steep rocky valley with the coldest river in the world cutting through it. It felt like ice breaking on your head.

It was good to be back on the road again.

We had been told in passing of a $1 a night campsite with cheap beer on lake Toktogul, this was more than enough incentive to head a few hundred kilometers out of our way the following day. Somehow we found the 'campsite', it was more of a circle of rocks, run by a slightly unhinged looking bloke who promised the chance to smoke with him and that he wants a kalashnikov to shoot stupid people... After trying to dive off each others shoulders in the lake, getting quite drunk and being awful at football with a few local kids we felt that we may fall into the stupid people category. He didn't have his kalashnikov yet, so we where safe.

 From here we headed for lake Issy Kul, the track was pretty rough but surounded by huge gorges, more snow capped mountains and foaming rivers. Charlie nearly killed us by drifting within inches of a jagged rock filled ravine and I managed to loose one of Owen's crocks by driving with the door open, I don't think he will ever forgive me, and we failed to make the lake. However spirits where high and it was a grand day all round.

The next day we reached Issy Kul, providing us with crystal clear waters for a lunch time swim, from here we pushed on back to Almaty to fix our groaning brakes.

Merry Christmas

During this very generous festive period team members received the best gifts possible, lots of lovely donations from friends and family :) (and one pretty wicked festive jumper). We're now well on our way to are minimum target of £1000, but as with all charity fundraising we don't just want to meet this target, we want to exceed it. With the new year just around the corner I'm positive we'll achieve this and have a whale of a time doing it.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
