Thanks and kudos to AQL for the SMS to email service that made this possible!

Here are the latest blogs from all the teams on the rally. Only teams that have included location data in their blogs appear on the map, and their location is the last one we know about; having said that, we do try to add their location if they mention where they are!

Well- the time is upon us to actually start planning this rather than relying on mindless optimism alone to get us to Tajikistan.  And so it is that we find ourselves stuck in a deserted workshop in the bowels on the University of Bath racking our brains for fundraising ideas.  This was going really well until we decided that what we really needed was a team logo and found possibly the largest pair of spanners in the world to accomplish this- all will be revealed soon!

After 3 days in Dushanbe we arrived Norway yesterday evening. We had some exiting days in Dushanbe partly together with Sophie and "on the road again"-team from Tasmania. Thanks to all of you for taking care of us! To those of you who have never visited the indian restaurant on Rudaki - don't do that! The food tastes good but you will have som painfull days in front of you! 

Altogether we have had a great trip. Now is the time for sorting out pictures, clips, and try to find out what really happend the 29 days we were on the road. 

We hope our little contribution makes a little difference for som people in Tajikistan!

P179 Managed to enter Tajikistan on our second attempt and are now 180 km into the Pamir mountains. Made our way over the highest point of our journey last night. Everything Ok.

We are in Frankfurt airport after leg one of the journey home.

The car has been accepted and it appears that it is to go back into the Pamir mountains from whence it came, and where nobody will care which side you are sitting on to drive. Whew.

The flight from Dushanbe was an education. The bags went through a couple of scanners but I don't think anyone was looking at them. We put the litre bottle of Fanta through the scanner too and they didn't seem to mind. Hand luggage variously consisted of as many bags as they could hold, many watermelons, and a number of coffee jugs, presumably full, presumably for the journey. Check-in finding the flight and boarding it was lucky dip as there were no screens with info and all the announcements were in Tajik...and possibly Russian.  read more »

Last night we camped outside in the mountains between Bishkek and Osh. Woke up to a beautiful wiev. Yesterday we made the last 260 km in to Osh on good roads and touched the Uzbek border. We did some shopping yesterday and had a swim in the hotell pool! 

Today we head for the border of Tajikistan, the last bordercrossing on the journey. It has allways been the bordercrossings that has caused us problems, we hope this one is better, an hope not to be disappointed!
