Thought I would do a seperate thread for each trip...

We are Team Rustyrhinos, aka Alex and Adam

In 2007 we drove from London to Ulan Bataar, Mongolia. 8000 miles completed in about 3.5 weeks in a Suzuki SJ410. For preparation, the route blog, pictures and videos see http://www.rustyrhinos.com/mongolrally07/index.html.

You can click on the banner at the top to go to the main home page to see our other trips.

Feel free to comment or ask anything Smile

Hehe, yup. It was literally falling apart by the end of it...cost us £300 and was a rust bucket. Towards the end the body was cracking, chassis was breaking, all shocks died, had 7 leaf spring breaks, steering was shot - we reeally were keeping our fingers crossed for the little thing to make it! Sold it in Mongolia for £500 - proceeds to charity...can't be bad!

Yup, was our first overland trip (other than driving around in Corsica and I have drove about in Thailand which I don't really count as they were tame).

Will deffo go to Kazakhstan and Mongolia again, was superb, recommend it to anyone. Perhaps I will do it on a round-the-world trip (i.e England-->Candada-->Russia--->Mongola--->Kazakhstan--->Ukraine-->Europe)
