It’s been a long time coming

I’ve been hankering on and on about this Rickshaw Run lark for the whole year now, and now, finally I can say that the accompanying website is up and running. It wasn’t difficult, its just that we’ve been to busy with other things. There is still a lot to do with the page which should, with any luck, materialise over the next couple of weeks.

So, what is this all about then? In need of a bit of a challenge, Espe and I have decided to take on the League of Adventurists second challenge: The Rickshaw Run. All we have to do is drive one of India’s finest forms of transport, the Auto Rickshaw, some 2500km from Cochin in the South to Darjeeling up North in the Himalayan foothills… all in two weeks. Unlike their other adventure, The Mongol Rally, this has not been done before. This is a complete unknown. It strikes me as an immense distance for a crap vehicle in a country that is renowned for it’s bad roads and terrible driving standards. But hey, it would be no fun if it was easy.
