What is this site about?
The world is just a little bit too safe. Gone are the days where the edge of the map called you forth to discover what lay beyond - satellite maps and GPS have it laid out before you leave the armchair. What if you want things to go wrong? What if you want a bit of unknown in a world full of health and safety measures? What if the words "adventure travel" conjure images of old ladies on a guided tour to Everest base camp with all the danger and real adventure neatly removed? What you need is the Mongol Rally.
Imagine yourself in the middle of the gargantuan Kazakh desert, your car slowly being shredded by the dirt track your map says is a motorway, completely lost hundreds of miles from civilisation with no back up crew to rescue you. Just you, your wits, your increasingly brown pants, a car that the laws of physics say shouldn't have got you past Peckham Rye and a slightly angry looking man with a gun.
Well, that is exactly what Team Rusty Rhinos did in the summer of 2007. This website is all about our team, and how we drove from London, England to Ulan Bataar, Mongolia in a 22 year old rust bucket known as The Rusty Rhino.
You may have noticed that the www.rustyrhinos.com website looks very different since the last time you visited it. We've relaunched the site as a celebration of successfully completing The Mongol Rally 2007 and raising the funds that we aimed for for our chosen charities. Use the menu on the left to navigate the site, the links are fairly self explantory, however note that the story, car and videos links are work in progress. Contact us if you have anything Mongol Rally related that you'd like to see on this site.
