**Update** 24 hours to go until I set off - If you'd like to follow the trip I'll be posting updates here... https://jrdfdeus.wixsite.com/website
I decided that teaming up with some American strangers and driving a nackered old car to Mongolia would be a good idea. In the cold light of day, much to my surprise it still seemed like a good idea, so here we are....
I'm off on a 10,000 mile road trip across 19 countries to Mongolia to raise money for the charity 'Cool Earth' and support their projects protecting the rainforest.
The team mates fell through, but I was set on the idea of doing this trip by that time so I'm going anyway and tackling the journey alone (I say alone, we'll have convoys / strays to pickup if their cars fail etc !).
If you want to find out more about....
The Charity -
Please check out 'Cool Earth's' website and take a look at the projects they support. http://www.coolearth.org/
The Trip -
Check out 'The Adventurists' website (http://www.theadventurists.com/adventures/mongol-rally/#1) or search 'Mongol Rally' on YouTube.
If you are able to help support Cool Earth by sponsoring my attempt to reach Mongolia in a car which might not even make it to the supermarket it would be very much appreciated (All funds go to the Charity - not me !)
