Is she crazy? Jodie's Mongol Derby

"Are you crazy?"
I have been asked this question so many times in the past few days since announcing my intention to ride in the Mongol Derby! 
My answer is generally "Ah maybe..." which is then followed by the list of reasons I want to do it which include: I want to prove to myself that I'm strong enough (mentally) to do it. I want to do it for my Dad who was a great horse lover and horseman and passed away too early in 2015 from Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). I want to challenge myself and push myself to the extremes. Riding in the Mongol Derby has been a dream and a bucket list item for me for the longest time, and now I get the chance to do it. The trip will be largely self funded (using $10,000 of my share of the sale of the family farm after Dad's passing). As you can see I am hoping to raise $5000 for the Leukaemia Foundation   http://www.leukaemia.org.au 
If you would like to follow my journey / preparation / race / Lord know's why, but life, please feel free to track me down on instagram: @jodiew0506 or twitter: @JodieNT

Hi Jodie, I just read the article on the ABC website. Good luck in Mongolia! My husband and I live in Darwin and we traveled in Mongolia for 3 weeks in 2013. It's a beautiful & mind blowing landscape and at times a harsh environment to be traveling in. I'm sure you are all sorted, but if you want to have a chat to someone who has been to Mongolia this is my number: 0402677617
