Tales of Adventure
The Mongol Rally has resulted in more anecdotes and utterly absurd tales of adventure than a gaggle of gossiping grannies could even begin to comprehend.
The modes of transport have ranged from ice cream trucks to firetrucks, Honda C90 scooters to Daihatsu Hijet vans. Teams have been stuck at borders for 28 days, been shot at, avoided the heftiest of bribes, experienced truly exceptional bowl movements, sunk in rivers, unintentionally driven to China (and Iraq)... the list really is as long and bumpy as the 10,000km un-route itself.
For a small taste of what is to come on this, the mightiest of mighty adventures take a look at the aptly named Tales of Adventure on the left... but ensure to place a bowl under your head, and prop your chin up on your hand to prevent the drooping jaw of disbelief and the drool of jealous excitement from ruining your peaceful perusal.
