Starting on July 16th, we will be taking 4 weeks to drive an perfectly unsuitable vehicle from the UK. We will be travelling with all of our gear and camping equipment required for those 4 weeks in our tiny van.

A 1997 Daihatsu Hijet 993cc! The story began with a road trip to Nottingham to purchase her. Dan and James drove over 100 miles to see and test drive it. Once purchased, Natasha (the van) broke down within just 0.9 miles after parting with cash and collecting the keys. Will it make it the 10,000+ mile trip to Mongolia?

We have a new logo! Thank you very much to Fran at Alpha Zulu design for our camel Alfred.
After first inspection of the van, we believe that the issue may all be down to a broken head gasket.
Dan and James went on a road trip up to Nottingham to purchase the van. After an adventure up there and parting with the cash, it broke down!
