Most of the team beat Phineas Fog’s time of eighty days. The final teammate crossed into America a few days ago and has touched down at SEA 87 days after flying east towards Iceland and parts beyond.
Team Gobi or Go Home would like to thank the generosity of our donors and sponsors for believing that three people with limited mechanical ability and no wrenches could drive a Fiat to Mongolia.
Above all, dear reader, thank you for following along on our journey. Whether you read to experience our adventure with us or read with a morbid curiosity of seeing if we ever truly broke down, thank you for spending some time perusing Shane’s cynicism and wit or Hans’ enthusiastic descriptions of the strange situations we got into.
We’ll leave this site up for future ralliers, so they know to drive from Atyrau to Aktobe and to bring Duran Duran with them. Actually, this site will stay up until Hans forgets to renew the domain.
Hopefully we’ve inspired a bit of wanderlust and made the world a slightly more adventurous place. Happy exploring.
