What a day it was!!!  We arrived at Leeds Castle for the official launch of the 2014 Mongolia Charity Rally.  There are 11 vechicles participating from Leeds Castle; there might be more joining us in Europe.  Without question, we have the cheapest, smallest, and uglyest vehicle in the rally.  The group included were four ambulances, on of which was four wheel drive.  A couple of "camper vans" which looked like a grocery store inside.  Teams with jackets, with embossed team name and logo.  Our Channel Tunnel train was booked for 10:50am, but our departure was delayed from Leeds Castle because the electric gate malfunctioned.  I got my tools out to unbolt the crossbar, but the personal from Leeds Castle told me that if I did that they would se

Drove out of London today, which seems like it took forever, and are in residence in Maidstone, close to the Leeds Castle, where we meet Saturday morning for kick off, and the channel tunnel.  Just got word today that tomorrow we will get our certificate which, in Baku, we can turn in for our transit visa through Tukmanistan.  Yea, it has been a long time coming.  Spent a fair amount of time getting the Toyota Hilux tested out, by driving it over curbs, and the roughest, narrowest roads we could fine.  Brakes work great, as they were called into action several times on the narrow two way roads around Maidstone.  Bought tools to fix almost anything that goes wrong, plus some WD40 (the latch on the tail gate did not work well, it did the job), and motor oil in the  read more »

Picked up the truck yesterday.  It has some cosmetic issues, and a little rust in places.  The fuel gauge does not work, so I will be computing the mileage we get and then using the odormeter as a fuel gauge.  It is not worth trying to fix the gauge.  It drives well (even on the "wrong side of the road")with the new brakes and shocks.  Been giving out t-shirts to the people helping us get ready of the departure.  Going through customs at Heathrow, the customs agent asked me what I was doing in the UK.  When I told him, he got all excited and told me about his trip all the way through Africa, north to the southern tip.  Then he wanted to know what vehicle we had purchased, etc.  He wished us well on our travels.  We got all the car papers  read more »

Ladies and gents, this bank holiday Monday, Charlie and Owen will be flogging whatever we can find over the next few days at the Sissinghurst car boot fair to help raise more funds for the rally. We will of course be accompanied by our ambulance so if you’re about come on down and have a gander. You may even pick up a bargain whilst you’re there! Once we’ve finished up at Sissinghurst we will be heading to Iden Green for the World famous rounders tournament, where we’ll be showing off the ambulance and spreading the word on the good deeds of GoHelp, kind of like the fire engine at the county fair.  read more »
