“This is 10,000 miles of feral, unsupported adventuring chaos from the UK to Mongolia in cars the size of a lawnmower. If nothing goes wrong, everything has gone wrong. It’s not clever, it’s not safe and you might not finish but it is the greatest adventure on the planet.” – The Adventurists

These are the words that convinced this group of hard-working NYC lads to ditch their everythings and have it out across one third of the world. We’re still not fully sure why. But if you’ve made it to this page, then welcome to our adventure. Buckle up.

THE ROUTE

The Mongol Rally is no guided tour. The premise is simple: obtain a crappy car (1L or smaller or engine) and drive from the UK to Mongolia in whatever way possible. There will be hiccups, but there lies the fun. We covered 18 countries in 8 crazy weeks.

Countries: United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Russia, Mongolia

THE CHARITIES

The Indiegogo campaign is now CLOSED. Thank you to the 75+ donors who raised over $7,600+ for these amazing organizations!

THE RESULT

In September 2014, the Nowhere Men rolled into Mongolia. With only 1 functional door, no functional windows, and two completely flat tires, we pulled into Ulan Bataar after 10,000+ miles of hardcore roughing it. The shit-eating grins on our faces summed up the countless highs and lows and everything in between we experienced on the Rally. To anyone who helped us on the way, thank you. We couldn’t have done it without the amazing strangers we met along our journey.
