Mongolia: The Last Outpost for the Daredevils

It seems to be the latest fad. To drive down to Mongolia from some city in Europe... in a piece-of-crap vehicle. And then drive around Mongolia in the same vehicle, or even better, ride a horse or cycle...

Ambulance to Mongolia team is driving a 30-year old ambulance down to Mongolia from the UK.

These people are driving to Mongolia from London with no preparation and vehicles guaranteed to break down in the middle of a Central Asian desert.

All are charitable events. I suppose it does create awareness of Mongolia for people who'd otherwise never known or heard about the country. Many are raising funds to charities in Mongolia.
