Day 30+31+32+33+34+35+36

Still in Mongolia, still struggling to get to Ulanbataar.

One car breaks down, we fix it, second car breaks down, we tow it … for 350km. Good times!
Cars keeps getting stuck, breaking down, loosing parts, making noise. But we will not give up!
We reach the finish line. We did it. We’re fucking awesome.

BOOM!

This was the most epic adventure I have ever done, and probably ever will do, something I’ll remember for the rest of my life … not a day goes by without me thinking about it.

Let me know if you have any questions about the rally if you’re planing to do it. I’m here to help!

PEACE! :D

Be kind, have a Cigar

Be kind, have a Cigar

During our trip, Kind Cigars had given us some awesome coffee, and some exquisite cigars. Something to start each day with, and the other for winding down at the end of each day. The cigars also were a big help in Uzbekistan when on the hunt for some gas, which they were not allowed to sell.

This is Christian, enjoying one of the above, to get a fresh start, somewhere in northern Kazakhstan.

Look up Kind Cigars, they do quality shit.

Day flies when you’re looking for petrol in Uzbekistan

Day flies when you’re looking for petrol in Uzbekistan

Oh boy, these last two weeks has been so intense.

So many new things, experiences & people. It’s hard to believe that we’re actually doing this, and that we’re only half way through.

Uzbekistan, Samaraqand & Bukhara has been amazing, despite the total lack of good petrol & internet.

We set out to do this and make one movie update/week, and blog posts every other, and boy was that wishful thinking.

With all things happening, you’re totally flabbergasted/exhausted when you finally get camp up, so updating or editing movies is the last thing on your mind.

But, soon, you will be seeing things popping up.

We’ve been teamed up and caravaning with two other teams these last few days, and today one team left us for Tajikistan, but the rest of us will try and reach the Kyrgyzstan border from Samaraqand tomorrow. It’ll be a hell drive (roads here, suck), but if we make it, we’re looking forward to some camping in super amazing environments.

If you ever get the chance to do the Mongol rally, do it. This shit is ballz.

Much love to all our sponsors for helping us make this adventure happen. Your gear has helped us out in so many tight spots, and you’ve given us memories that will last 3 life times … and we’re only half way though.

Reklamöl & Fundraiser

Reklamöl & Fundraiser

Some images from last nights reklamöl/fundraised.

First try funding party.

First try funding party.

Thanks to everyone who showed up last night for our Reklamöl/fundraiser/Chillax. It was a great success (Mintuu Chili?!), and together we managed to raise 1413.50 SEK! Awesome!

No one brought any pens or drawing paper, which I found a bit odd, since that’s the industry we’re in.

Oh well, it was still awesome!
We had both cars parked outside, fully pimped out with logos and stickers and roof racks. Looked pretty pimp.

Damn, less than a month left now, and all of a sudden it feels like there’s SO MUCH LEFT TO DO!! … which there isn’t.

A little gallery-thingie with pictures will be up later.

Peace!

We’re rolling with thunder, thanks to TIAB/4P!

We’re rolling with thunder, thanks to TIAB/4P!

Once again, it’s time to say hello to a couple of awesome people from an awesome company.

This time, it’s our long time friends over at TIAB/4P who agreed to help us out with a superwinch, and 12 (!!!) brand new wheels for the venture brothers (Uno & Uzl).

Not only this, but also the whole time we’ve been working on the cars, and not working on the cars, they’ve been parked at TIAB’s offices, in safety behind bars and security and wires and gates!

So, TIAB has given us so much more than just 12 (!!) wheels and a super winch, and for that, we’re forever grateful, and will make sure not to disappoint them.

THANKS!!! :D

In need of medical attention!? We’ve got that covered!

In need of medical attention!? We’ve got that covered!

It’s time to unveil our latest sponsor to join in on the fun and helping us reach our goals!

Say hello to the awesome people from medivet.se!

Medivet is in the business of animal X-ray, and they were the perfect partner for us when it came to find people who could help us with medical kits for the trip. They generously donated Complete field med-kit, syringes, scissors, Emergency burn wraps + and charity support.

So, thanks to Medivet, you’ll do wise to stay close to us during the rally, in case of an emergency!

We’re super thankful for the awesome support they’ve shown us, but to be honest, we all hope that we won’t be needing the med-kit, if you know what I mean.

A couple of weeks ago, we drove up the two fabia’s (Uno & Two) to a little place in Småland called Sävsjö. One of our sponsors was to give them a spa treatment, and you never say no to that!

So, when dropping them off, they looked like this:
before

Last friday, we got them back. Our sponsors DipYourCar.se had given them a full on make over, and if you ask me, they look AMAZING!

after

What DipYourCar.se did was to plasti-dipp/plastidipp them, which means you plastic-spray-foliate them.

This means that when we got to Mongolia, and hand over the cars to charity, they can choose if they want it blue, or the original colour, since the dip is easy to peel and pull off, without harming the original paint job!

AMAZING™!

Thanks to our sponsors DipYourCar.se for doing an awesome job, and being super cool. If you live in Sweden, check them out. Either their site or their Facebook.

Dipping the cars is like, half price from doing the old foliate-thingie.

… I’m so doing my Honda civic in matt black when I get home from Mongolia!

Next week we will start with placing the logos from all our sponsors on the cars, and then it will start to look like proper race cars .. if race cars only had 1198cc motors :)

Outdoor living saviours!

friluftsvaror_skylt-skala_25procent

During this amazing rally/adventure/growing of many parts, we’ll be doing, it hit us that most of the sleeping, correction, ALL of the sleeping, will be done below the sun and the moon. Thus, we needed some help with what and how to do this.

Luckily, friluftsvaror.se stepped in, and helped us out. Not only did they help us out with tents, backpacks, sleeping bags (you name it, they delivered it!), but they also taught me (Pontus) a whole lot about camping! I now know how to use a mirror compass!

We’re forever grateful to friluftsvaror.se, and we will do everything in our power to repay you for the kindness.

With this support from friluftsvaror.se, it means we’re somewhat almost ready to leave, and with a couple of days left (80 days, today), this means we can start focusing whole-heartedly on getting money and toys together for the SOS Children’s village. We have two events lined up, and will get back to you all with more info when it’s “official”.

Thanks again to friluftsvaror.se, and all our other sponsors, thanks for making this possible.

leet sponsors!
