It’s April 1984, Al is wetting his pants and being sick over his mothers shoulder, I’m being dragged into the world with some forceps and Gilbey is still a bun in the oven. Fast-forward 30 years and here we are, approaching middle age wondering what to do with our lives. Where has the last 30 years gone? How does it only seem like yesterday that our idea of an adventure was going to Blackpool Pleasure Beach?
Well, they say time flies when you’re having fun and I suppose you could say that between us, we’ve all had plenty of that! So, We’re rapidly approaching 30, we could sit around and whine about growing old or we could grab life by the short and curlies and do something ridiculous to mark our giant leap into adulthood. Naturally, we chose the latter. So here we are at 29, planning to buy a beat up car fit for only your Grandma to run to Sainsburys and back once a week then pimp it out sufficiently for it to take us 10,000 miles from Blackpool to Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia and see in our 30th year in style.
There is obviously an element of danger involved in this adventure which we are very much aware of. There is grumpy gun toting border officials, Eastern European Mafia, bad roads, terrorists, getting lost in the middle of nowhere, bandits and not to mention Alan’s driving and Gilbey’s choice of music! All these things have been taken into consideration and we’ve decided we’re still going, why? Well, because if it were safe, it’d be simple and we’re after an adventure!
Watch the below video for a taster of things to come.
