The car is taking a beating. I honestly can’t really believe that it still starts for us every morning.
We have taken it through rivers
We have taken it over bridges that appear to be made with toothpicks
We have camouflaged it in dust so it fits in with the Gobi
We have determined that duct tape is our best friend
And I realized that I can crawl under the car and be willing to get dirty. Our exhaust clamps came loose and now our exhaust system is hanging very low and is ready to snap completely. However with the help of fencing wire we acquired from a local we’ve been able to secure it for now. Teamwork!
Our motto is – if it falls off the car and it keeps running…then we don’t need it.
Onward towards Ulaanbaatar!

This has really been an amazing journey. It’s true that a picture says a thousand words. I’m amazed that your trusty ride made it all the way to Mongolia.

I am amazed too Donna! I can’t believe how good the engine was. But boy does she need an oil change and some repairs now!

Loved the motto! Is it strange that I feel like a proud mum about this car?
By Sherry August 30, 2011 - 9:13 pm
No that’s not wrong! You should feel proud. We haven’t given it up yet to auction – will probably do that next week. Will be sad to see her go!!!!

CRAZY picture of the car in the water. What an incredible landscape. It’s probably a surreal moment to be in Mongolia.
