3 girls & their Mustache. 1 car. 10,000 miles.
We are Kristina, Sora, Maartje, and Scott. We're The Nerdventurists and we’re taking part in The Mongol Rally!
The Mongol Rally is an organized adventure that spans 10,000 miles from London, England to Ulan Ude, Russia. There is no set course. Just a finish line. We make our own route. It starts on July 19th, 2015 and takes as long as we have it take. In general most people make the trip in 4 weeks.
We will be supporting two charities, the official Adventurists charity Cool Earth, and The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America. Sora has Crohn’s Disease, which has given planning this adventure a new perspective and set of challenges. However, none of us believe that chronic illness should stop anyone from traveling or doing the “crazy” thing
You can learn more about our charities on our website
So what IS The Mongol Rally? In the wise words of The Adventurists:"The Mongol Rally is about getting lost, using your long neglected wits, raising shedloads of cash for charity and scraping into the finish line with your vehicle in tatters and a wild grin smeared across your grubby face."
There are only three rules for The Rally:1. You can only take a farcically small vehicle2. You’re completely on your own3. You’ve got to raise a £1000 for charity
So that’s what we’re doing! We’re driving to Ulan Ude from London. We leave July 19th. Who knows when we’ll actually show up in Russia. However, we need your help!
Gas prices are astronomical and they're burning a hole in our budget very very quickly. So any support you can lend us will be incredibly appreciated, and we'll be splitting it with contributions to our charities!The money you donate will be towards gas and charity, 50/50!
