The Yooper Troopers

$1,959 of $6,000 goal

Hi! We are Austin, Gordon, and Hanna, AKA The Yooper Troopers.

We are a team in this years Mongol Rally which is a charity fundraiser that draws teams from around the world to drive from London to Mongolia in the name of adventure, and charity.
Our route will take us from London on July 16th, through eastern Europe and onward through the 'Stans before charinging up the Mongolian Steppes, and ending in Ulan Ude Russia on  on the shores of Lake Baikal  August 26th.



What type of car have we chosen to trust for this 15,000 mile journey?
Meet The Great White Whale possibly the worst vehicle we could find for the task!!



A journey such as this is no small undertaking, with hours of logistcs to sort through, including visas, immunizations, plans for the car once we get to our destination. It takes expereiced travelers to make sure you dont get stuck at a desolate border town somewhere in Russia. Luckily our team ise well versed in overland travel. Austin has spent years driving, maintaining, and un-stucking vehicles across the country, while Gordon, and Hanna are experienced overseas travelers.


Now you might be asking, why in the world would we subject ourselves to this torture? Well, to raise money for two wonderful charities: Bay Cliff Health Camp, and Cool Earth.

Bay Cliff is an organization where children and adults with physical disabilities go for adventures of their own.




The camp that opened officially in 1934 is a year round non-profit that works with children and adults to expand their independence and increase wellness. We believe this is not only a point of pride for the Upper Peninsula, but an important cause for everyone to support.


Cool Earth


Cool Earth puts a spin on traditional charitable work by helping to protect the world’s rainforests through direct contact with their indigenous people.




All the procedes from our fundraising will go  to these  two charities after helping with our travel exenseswith a minumum of £1000 going to our charities (but hopefully a lot more!)
.

We are incredibly excited for this adventure and feel very thankful for all the help and support we receive. Follow our progress on our Facebook page and Instagram! (to be announced) where we will post daily updates (when internet acess allows). We will also post team member bios, and progress on our vehicle build, and solutions to issues that arise!
