That is true, but since we're wanting to visit our sponsors, we have to show up in something that they would sell to their clients. I think 4WD is the way to go. I don't want the team to be stranded in some huge pothole in the middle of Kazakstan or Uzbekestan and need to get a pull from a yak. That being said, we want to go around the world too. I just like the idea of having 4WD just in case, but Derek is right, most Mongol rally people do it in 2WD cars and they leave the cars in Mongolia. We need to finish the rally, then go through to Russia, all the way to Japan, and then bring the truck to North America. We're going a lot further, and want to have every advantage we can! Funny thing, last Friday we got a call from an Englishman who is submitting a proposal to some sponsors to take a brand new Land Rover around the world. I told him about our trip. What a coinsidence! His last name is also Smith too!We're going to help him get his Land Rover from Japan to Vancouver. He's going a few weeks ahead of us (not on the Mongol Rally).
