There is a motion from the floor to participate in the Mongol Rally 2018. I think it was the "participating in this event may lead to serious injury or death" that clinched it. Or maybe the part where a camel was pulling a Yugo out of a stream.
[personal profile] juli & [personal profile] corvi: if this starts looking likely I'm going to have some questions!

"If"? "May lead to serious injury or death" seems to describe your lifestyle admirably. :)

I would suggest you avoid Moldova, and prepare for a lot of utterly terrible roads once you get into Ukraine and eastward.

When I accompanied pals on the Mongolia Charity Rally as far as Kyiv, we generally had quite a nice time except for Moldova - where we had to deal with crazily expensive everything, terrible roads, closed border crossings, and rerouting due to avoiding transnistria; it was generally unpleasant and a huge timesink.

Do you know Christine Chun (can't remember her LJ user name - was it chunski??)? She and her husband did the rally a few years ago and her documentation of it was freaking epic.

Heh, tinny was who I went on the rally with. She doesn't really post to LJ these days. http://loath.org/aneel/random/mongol/Rally%20Blog.pdf is a pdf of our rally logs, though.

Keep in mind that we went on the Charity Rally, where the point is to deliver the vehicle in at least somewhat working condition to the charity in Mongolia, and not the Mongol Rally where you intentionally drive a piece of shit.

Are you sure this is a good idea given the current geopolitical situation? I know that deep in your bones you don't really care whether an idea like this is good, but I thought it would be remiss of me not to point this out.

It did occur to me that I don't even camp.
