Just a quick thread with a couple of photos of the truck ready for the 20k mile trip to Mongolia and back. We were meant to leave last week but we could not get the air con fixed in time. After getting the condensor, compressor, dryer and 2 pipes repaced we are finally ready to leave. Ferry booked for tonight :character-beavisbutthead: We will be back in mid september so wish us luck.

You have no idea how jelous I am.

Take as many photos and videos as you possibly can and even make a video diary everyday just summing up what you've done or about to do today. In years to come you'll look back with fond memories.

Andrew we have two long drives at the begninig of the trip as we are staying at freinds and family in Zakopane and Moscow. We will leave for Moscow on Sunday and we should be there on Monday.

We went for a drive today and we got very stuck. There were some impossible ruts up ahead and so we had to reverse. As we were in ruts we could not get out of them and got stuck when reversing. So we needed to use the winch but the power steering was playing up and our winch is hydrualic... Did i mention there was a thunderstorm too!
