The Mission

The Peking to Paris Rally is a recreation of the 1907 challenge issued by Le Matin, "Is there anyone who will undertake to travel this summer from Peking to Paris by automobile?"
The 2016 version will follow a route of 13,695 Km (8,510 miles) and take 35 days. We are travelling in Rhubarb and Custard, a 1936 Buick. We know nothing about cars or rallying.

This is the first time I've had proper internet access since the rally start and I've now looked at the blog and I see that what I write gets muddled up and parts don't even arrive in transmission.

I can't correct it on the move. Hope it makes enough sense that you can follow along.

From now on I'll write shorter and more often.
