So here we are things are starting to fall into place for us, what started as a half hearted idea of "how hard can it be to take a car and drive it almost half way round the world" has gained momentum and in a shocking realisation of its not long until we actually leave on this adventure both of us are left thinking we should probably get our act together. The Launch of our social media platforms sees us also get a crucial box ticked on the ever expanding list of things to get done. This box was the actual car itself, we acquired this last week in Oldham after some disappointing searches for similar cars, one of which was a car we turned up to view that after talking to several dealers in the same street didn't exist. We decided after a quick test drive the VW Lupo was the motor for us, setting us back a reasonable £650 with a odometer reading of 70,000 miles it certainly sits in the category of vehicle suggested for the Mongol Rally fingers crossed it survives.
