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!

Launch day is fast approaching and we are getting quite excited at the prospect of meeting the other teams and getting on the road.  We have been filling our days with sightseeing around beautiful Dorset, and kitting out Matilda.  In addition our friend Stewart has been making sure that we can erect a tent, assemble our stretcher beds and change a tyre. We think he was a little impressed with our ability….or he was too much of a gentleman to say otherwise!

We have a huge thank you to put out to Cabinair Services over in Letchworth. They have supplied us with some incredible seating for our brave explorers and even gave them a going over before they were fitted to the rear of our great steed.

Our noble steed is tucked up waiting for Thursday to start the adventure of a lifetime. After the last few days we will be treating our mobile home to a rinse and scrub before setting off!

Today we will be practising changing the wheel on Matilda (whilst trying to prevent Stewart from capturing it on video) and then preparing the water melon salad for this afternoon B-B-Q.  A few glasses of wine may also be involved somewhere along the line.

We have safely arrived in Dorset and are currently staying with friends. We have Matilda (our vehicle AKA Tilly) and are now getting used to driving around the country roads of England.  Our plans for the next few days is to get to familiarise ourselves with 'Tilly', practice wheel changes etc, try out the tent, BBQ Saturday evening, drink some wine and then prepare for the coming week.

We have now been on the road for 1 week, we had some hazzle getting in to Russia. e had to take down the blue lights, cover up all text saying ambulance. The sad thing was that we also had to give up all medicines we had. Medicines for calming chocks, allergies, heart attacks and so on since they apparently was classified as higly effictive narcotics. I pretty sure tht the cusoms officer had no clue what it contained. 

So Russia our route are from finland to veliky novgorod, Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, Kazan (where we are now)

the roads have been overall really good mostly two lane free way. But the traffic is mad, and there are so many cars that driving in cities always contain traffic jams for about 1-2 hours, that recalls to St petersburg Moscow  and Kazan.  read more »
