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

Day 20+21+22+ and a few hours of 23

In between all the blog posts and gallery updates from the trip, I thought you might wanted to see the seventh instalment of the Team Venture Adventure Time Ride of Your Life Videos!

We’re reaching for the Mongol border, and it’s a far reach.

Leaving Kazakhstan, driving though the motherland (russia) and being pleasantly surprised about how amazingly stunning it is. Camping and trying to reach the mongol border since it might take a few days to get through the border itself according to rumours.

And yes, it took a while to get through.

Loving every second of it.

Yppah – Never mess with sunday

Day 13+14+15+16

Hello there!
Fifth instalment of the awesome video-thingie is up over at Vimeo, look, listen, and share! ♥

Finally, we leave Uzbekistan after a night in the car at their border, waiting for it to open. We enter Kyrgyzstan, and oh boy was this country nice to drive around in … enjoy!

Music: Sagor & Swing – Livet nere på jorden

Hopefully, the other guys have written or edited some pictures to fill this void between video updates! :)

Day 10+11+12

Day 10, 11 & 12.

Slowly we’re moving through Kazakhstan with a few mishaps here and there to UZL along the way, only to reach a Uzbekistan that has no petrol. Joy! Adventure!

Music: Fredrik – Na Na Ni

Day 7+8+9

Day 7, 8 and 9.

Enjoy the third installment of Team Venture – Mongol Rally 2013. We’ve begun to look a bit ragged as we get the hang of sleeping rough and driving day in and day out.

Driving the last few clicks to the russian border, and then making our way to the all mighty Kazakhstan!
Meeting two new teams along the way that we would see a lot of the next few weeks. Team Saxolia, and Team BONNE+JAN.

Music: Coldcut – Sound Mirrors (Grasscut Dub)

Day 4+5+6

Episode 2
Days 4+5+6’ish

… Driving from Sibiu to Bucharest, and then ending it in The Ukraine, after driving through Moldova super-quick.

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!

And the countdown begins

And the countdown begins

Today my friends, it is only one month left. One month left until we set out on a journey of a life time. One month left until we get to show all you haters that THIS, is really happening. One month left until we get lost. Get lost in what is hopefully a world filled of new exciting challenges.

One month.

Dear soon to be Mongol Ralliers

My name is Naviguru Travis and I am a Mongol Rally veteran.

What you are about to embark on is an experience that will fill your life with wonder and happiness for the rest of your existence. The journey, the madness, the friends who will be in your life forever; the noise that never stops when you return.

What you imagine is only the beginning, and a beautiful place to start. What you will embrace is a world that belongs to each and every one of you in one form or another. You will find infinite happiness in the sunsets over barren plains, the energy and chaos of parties you will create. The roads and the lack of them. The miles before you will become the miles of your life. What you think is just a car will be your love. What you believe to be a city explored will become a constant craving. And the friends you will meet will fill you with completeness forever. Be ready to embrace.

The Mongol Rally never stops. Each and every day I have talked about, been reminded of, and connected with; the journey, the lifelong friends, and the pure love that will become your constant companion. It never stops. And for you, it is just about to begin.

So fill your minds and hearts with excitement. Allow the madness to take over. And become part of the world and the rally that is taking you there.

Happy days and eternal love, from a kindred spirit and one who can feel every bit of your upcoming journey. Have fun and live every moment. To my veterans, you all know how this feels.

He makes you want to go do this, right?

One month.

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
