Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

💥On the 8th July until the 8th August we are taking on what is known as The Poles Of Inconvenience Rally. Run by The Adventurists. The un-routed journey will start and finish in Czech Republic but it's the Poles of Inconvenience that really creates the stupidity. Think of it as a curated network of chaos. 

Some of the Poles we must reach may be inconvenient in the classic sense of being nestled in remote corners of wilderness areas. Others might be topographically inconvenient, like the top of a mountain, or in the middle of a sea of sand dunes in the Sahara. Some will be logistically inconvenient, and all of them will be comically unsuitable for our 20-year-old Fiat Panda.

There are only 3 rules to this crazy adventure, and they are:

1️⃣Small and Rubbish 

Our vehicle had to be small in engine size, physical size and definitely not suitable for the roads we are about to take to make the rally as hard as possible. There may be just a few breakdowns along the way, so we picked a Fiat Panda we bought for £600.

2️⃣No Set Route

We must bag as many Poles of Inconvenience as we can in any order we like, in any direction we want. So, we have decided to make it even harder by getting as many as we can by travelling to as many countries as we can! On the worst roads we can!

3️⃣We’re on our own.

That means we have no support or backup following us and we are completely alone apart from other team members. If it's not dangerous and we aren't lost, we're not on an adventure!

We are doing all of this for a brilliant once in a lifetime experience but also to raise money and awareness to an amazing charity that is Vasculitis UK that helps so many people in so many ways. We are also dedicating this adventure to our good friend Sarah who sadly left us way too soon due to Vasculitis. 

💥Any donation, no matter how small would be deeply appreciated and would go to an amazing cause!
