Thanks and kudos to AQL for the SMS to email service that made this possible!

Here are the latest blogs from all the teams on the rally. Only teams that have included location data in their blogs appear on the map, and their location is the last one we know about; having said that, we do try to add their location if they mention where they are!

<p>After setting off on Saturday morning we made good time to Dover and managed to get an earlier ferry. We were surprised however to disembark in Calais having booked Dunkirk! From here we pressed on, wanting to get as far into Belgium as we could. After a few driver changes Charlie chauffeured us into to Brussels city center giving us a nice tour of the highly confusing one way systems. As the evening drew closer we finally escaped and got back onto the motorway and a bit of scrub land outside a service station hotel was our campsite for the night. With a warm beer and a boil-in-the-bag meal for dinner we went to sleep in the cold Belgian rain. </p>  read more »

When we first heard about this trip we realized we were going to be experiencing some unique adventures, but we thought they would be happening once we reached Baku, Azerbaijan and took the freighter to Turkmenistan.  But today we had our first real adventure.  read more »

Very clean vehicle back from the Toyota repair shopVery clean vehicle back from the Toyota repair shopIn front of our hotel in Trabzon, Turkey after the Toyota repair shop power washed our vehicle.  We had a least an inch of encrusted bugs on the front of the vehicle.  Now the bumper shines so well that you can see your reflection.  Both Dave and Roger are not shaving, as is clearly evident in this picture.  In a few weeks they will both look like Santa Claus, except for the round belly. I continue to shave everyday.

Yesterday driving from Istanbul to Trabzon, on the Black Sea coast, our Toyota had two incidences of power loss.  We knew there was a Toyota dealer in Trabzon, so we decided to spent the day here getting the truck checked out by a Toyota technician.  This morning we drove to the dealer, a couple of kms from the hotel.  What a great surprise!  I went in to talk, hopefully, to the service manager.  It turned out his English was excellent, and his dream is, when he retires, to drive to Mongolia.  Instant friends for life.  We were there less than 5 minutes when a technician came out and took the truck into the shop to check it out.  About 45 minutes later we got the report that there were three problems.  First the fuel filter was in bad shape.&  read more »
