Name Driving home from Mongolia
I am looking out for a few people 3 at maximum to help drive an Austin Maestro back from Mongolia to the UK, We will be leaving around 5th April and can take as long as necessary to return home though I am expecting to take around three weeks to complete the drive comfortably, I would like to take a predominantly Russian route though we can travel a fair distance across Mongolia itself if this is the team consensus but noting the car must exit Mongolia on the 3rd may at the latest due to customs issues, We can return back through either Ukraine or up through Finland and Norway.
The trip is part of a new fund-raising project called the relay rally, check it out here www.relay.charityrallies.org The car has travelled to Tajikistan and onto Mongolia as a preliminary test and now we have to bring her home for upgrades and the official launch.
This will be a budget style trip lots of camping, as the drive home is 10,000 miles I am expecting it to take around 3 weeks though it is possible in ten days!
There are no extra costs involved other than fuel and your travel costs and some car repair funds if it breaks!
The budget looks like this
£500-600 flight to Mongolia (Ullunbattor)
A share of the fuel bill! Though I should have this covered to a degree!
£ visas for Mongolia and Russia and any others you may need (depending on nationality)
£ food… pretty cheap
£ car repair costs, maybe £100pp contribution (refunded or put into fuel budget if nothing happens)
So it works out as a pretty cheap trip!
