We're really excited to say that our vehicle for this mega-fundraising adventure is now all sorted and approved for import into Mongolia! So welcome the newest member of Team Bearded Dragons: Bertie (the bus).
OK so he's not much of a looker; but that's not what this is about... He is a 2004, 2.4l LDV Convoy, 10-seater Minibus with a few little adaptions of our own (he used to have 17 seats, he's losing a few for boring legal reasons but gaining some creature comforts and Mongolia-proof accessories instead...)
Bertie really is at the core of what this rally is all about, delivering and donating a work-ready utility vehicle to great causes in Central Asia. In the UK Bertie might have been heading for the scrap-heap, but we know he has a lot more to give yet.
Mechanically he's a great runner and has just sailed through an MOT, but he does need some minor work to get him ready for such a long and rough trip. If you happen to be a mechanic, or work in coachworks/auto-bodywork, lets talk :)
