Best of luck Dirk.

Steer clear of Sichuan Province (I'm there now) as they have the worse roads I've seen in China.

Good luck Dirk, can't wait to see photos from the adventure.

Thanks Chris. Keep checking that facebok page, we will try to upload pictures en-route whenever there is internet access.

Thanks Les. The rally will take us from Beijing northwest into Mongolia. Sichuan Province is not on the route. Bad roads however, is the whole idea of the rally. Endurance for man and machine (woman in our case as my wife is navigator). One week in the Gobi desert sleeping in tents. Fun, fun, fun.

Hi Ray - Ulan Bator in Mongolia will be our first "rest day" (read: inspect, service and repair the car) and any contact person with access to a mechanics workshop could be very, very helpful.

Regards,

Dirk
