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.

We're Off!

Well, no not the start line exactly but we are off to Beijing today having spent the last few days in Seoul, Korea on a short holiday.

Richard saw Robert Plant at the airport - an omen perhaps? Some kind of Stairway to Heaven opening up before us? A podium place? Or just that our hotel in China is called the Shangri-La?

Nerves have now been replaced by jet lag - I think I preferred the nerves.

One problem that has emerged is that of course Google is banned in China and Blogger runs on Google. Hopefully will still be able to blog though.
