Mongol rally 2012
Lemur Attack Force Sometime in July 2011, aimee whitcroft and Dane Foster decided to do the ‘has their friends raising their eyebrows’ charity fundraising drive of pure horror adventure known as the Mongol Rally 2012. Latest post: The idea is for a few hundred batshit insane courageous and open-minded people from around the world to attempt to get their very small cars or motorcycles from the UK to Ulan Bator, the capital of Mongolia. There’s no route, a fact surpassed only by the fact that there’s no support, either. Since its inception some 8 years ago, the Rally has raised almost 2 million British Pounds and has certainly made the world a little less boring (a stated aim of The Adventurists, the Rally’s organisers). And so these two mad lemurs – for Lemur Attack Force is their team name – have decided to up and leave their adopted country of New Zealand, in July 2012, and venture across a third or so of the earth’s circumference (much of it Russia) in a 1.3l Suzuki Jimny.

Well, shit, this has been a long time coming. And for that we apologise. But, since the next Mongol Rally is about to start, we figured it’s time to draw this one to a close! So, here goes. The penultimate post :)* Lemur Attack Force » The Penultimate Post – Mongolia!
Lemur Attack Force » Russia Timelapse
Russia is, let’s be clear, kinda awesome. And kinda terrifying, too. We travelled through around 4.500 km of it, over roads which were fantastic, and roads which were primarily roadworks, and roads which, quite cimply, induced much terror. And we met the most terrifying thing of all: the Siberian Mosquito of Doom. But first things first: the border crossing into Russia, from Latvia. We have chosen this one on purpose, as we had heard that, it being a Schengen Zone border, and quite far north, it should be quiet and civilised. Lemur Attack Force » The Rally Part 4: Russia.

Mongol Rally Prep Tips | The Mongol Rally Guys Below are some preparation tips for those of you that are considering doing the Mongol Rally in forthcoming years: You’ll be doing a lot of promotion before the rally, trying to raise funds for charity and whatnot. The first thing you should do is get yourself a web site (GoDaddy sells domain names for about $10 and you can have it forwarded to anywhere) and print out some business cards. Amazingly, we were one of the only teams in the rally that had cards printed, and every other team thought it was a great idea but hadn’t thought of it themselves.

Lemur Attack Force
Though Lemuria is no longer considered a valid scientific hypothesis, it has been adopted by writers involved in the occult, as well as some Tamil writers of India. Accounts of Lemuria differ, but all share a common belief that a continent existed in ancient times and sank beneath the ocean as a result of a geological, often cataclysmic, change, such as pole shift. In 1864 the zoologist and biogeographer Philip Sclater wrote an article on "The Mammals of Madagascar" in The Quarterly Journal of Science.
Mongolian Malls and Mechanics A little splash of color this morning... The first thing we did when we woke up was check the rear tire to see if it still had air. We already had one flat from the day before and had to put on our spare which had a slow leak in it – but it seemed to hold ok overnight…whew. We had 100km until we arrived in Bayankhongor where we could get both tires fixed. The morning drive was beautiful with bright blue skies overhead and decent roads. We followed the power lines into Byankhongor as we had learned by now that power lines were an indication that a town was in their path.

Mongol Rally | The Adventurists Ten Mongol Rallies have passed since the first edition in 2004. A decade of motoring stupidity has flown the flag for adventurism in admirable fashion, but the rally has had to evolve as the years ticked by. The cars got newer because we sold them for charity and didn't want to give them crap plus the government made the importing of old cars expensive.
Best Intentions Tea and Travel: Mongol Rally 2008 During the course of our trip we've been exposed to multiple examples of bribe and police corruption, in Russia, Ukraine, and Kazahkstan, to date. I feel that Kazahkstan has a long way to go, in terms of tactics and methodology to reach the level of success that Russian police have attained. It's important to note that the Russians have had a stronger infrastructure for much longer and it's really a testament to their engineering efforts to allow their police force to fleece motorists much more efficiently and effectively. In Russia we were passing a huge monument to Soviet dominance (?) when I drifted into the passing lane to allow for a better shot for Cloud to snap.
