I had the pleasure to meet two fellow participants last night.
Two thoroughly nice chaps, and a father & son team, Leo & JC.
After reading about the regional meets that were going on in different places in the UK, I was starting to feel a little left out, being based in Madrid. Then one evening I spotted that another rally participant also claimed to be in Madrid. A little forum banter later, and the meet was arranged.
It was excellent to finally talk to other participants over a tasty beverage or two about about all things Mongol Rally... routes, cars, sponsorship.
