 Hellooo!My name's Adam for a start, and I'm doing something a little bit crazy. With my brother, I'm driving 10,000 miles in a VW Polo. Across deserts and mountains to Mongolia. I did say crazy.

We aren't just doing it because we're lunatics either. We're aiming to raise thousands of pounds for the Alzhiemers Society. This massive adventure is called the Mongol rally, and our team, Mongol Rowley, are planning to conquor it in style. We have some amazing sponsors and some great support from family and friends...

Our only issue is fuel. 

We have done some maths, and we reckon the average price of a litre of fuel on our trip will be £1. (Pretty good compared to Tesco!) The issue is we are doing lots of miles. 10,000 to Ulaan Baatar, and 5,500 miles back again. All in, assuming a MPG of around 35 in the desert, we reckon we will use 387 gallons of fuel. Almost 2000 litres. Crazy, I know. We are having to fund our own Visas, jabs, food, bribes and tons more, and hoped that some kind souls out there would want to be a part of this crazy adventure with us. 

All we ask is you buy us one litre of fuel. £1. That's it. If you can do that, hugs from us, tell your friends, and soon enough, we'll have all the tanks we need! If you have a particularly generous feeling today, you could buy us two litres of fuel, or a whole tank! Our VW Polo has a 45 litre tank. If you can afford £45 for us, we will personally thank you on our blog, and we will give you a small space on the car for a message or a photo. We keep a blog that you can follow, for free of course. So if you can't afford to donate, that's fine, you can still follow along! And as we go, we hope to release some videos, vlogs and finally a documentary/film when the rally is finished. All crazy exciting. All of that stuff is over at so feel free to check it out.

We would appreciate anything you can afford and will thank as many people as we can. If you have any questions, or want to get in touch, feel free! Just message us on our site :)


Wish us luck. I hope you enjoy our adventure, I'm pretty terrified...

I'm going to put a tank of fuel in now so I can drive Wilson (Our car) to the mechanics, so there's my contribution.

Thanks to everyone!Adam out.
