Budapest to Bamako Rally aka B2B Rally

Recommended Posts

Good luck to 2 South Africans calling themselves Rovingmedics. They are from Qatar and are about to embark on the Budapest to Bamako Road Rally. Good luck to them - and I encourage the community to follow them at - http://rovingmedic.ontheroad.to/ - and send them good luck messages and support during the next 20 odd days that they will be on the road.

 

The rally essentially follows the same route as the old Dakar Rally but is non competitive. There are a number of tasks that the competitors do during the trip, of which geocaching is one. They will be visiting a number of caches through the West African countries that they will be traveling.

 

I am sure that you will join me in wishing them God Speed on their adventure and finding all the caches that they attempt.

 

Good luck Shaun and Denise. Enjoy the adventure.

I think that's a good idea that people log onto their blogsite and wish them well. They have 2 TB's from cachers that are thravelling with them as well as their car is a traveling TB. The codes for the 3 TB's are TB2AM26; TB3WD6A and TB2WJJF.

Good luck guys - and they are planning to do a few caches along the way. The offical race entrants have to do "geo-tasks" similar to caches along the way too.

 

Please support them.

Shaun and Denise had a tough day yesterday - but are well on their way to the Algerian border today - hopefully at the Star Wars set (Tatooine) soon.

They spent the WHOLE DAY crossing the border into Mauritania today! Now the going will start to get really tough!
