I am still coming, however it will be likely in on saturday now.

Had a little accident at work when a rather careless chap swung a large steel container into my crane and crushed the cab.....a little bit of paperwork to do on Friday I reckon.

Unhappy Whoops

Sorry folks, I won't be able to make it after all - the lure of the snow slopes in France has been too much and I've booked a last minute deal to go snowboarding for the week. I'm having to work tomorrow evening and then we're going to have to drive through the night to get to the airport for the early morning flight.

Have a great time
Donate lots of money to Belle's appeal for the Children's Hospital in Mongolia (it's a very worthwhile cause) and I hope to see you all next year.

And give Belle and the others a great send off for their Scooters Across the Sahara trip

best wishes

Urgent help!

Again, urgent help is needed. We're on the motorway and its dark. If anyone see's this and doesn't think they can help please let somebody who can know.

Also, this is Belle's son, not Belle herself.

Belle and co are safe and sound. We've all enjoyed a few pints down the pub and retired for the night.

Many thanks for a great w/e Rossi and Mrs Rossi and also for the international rescue service on Friday ( Nadine being Australian). Great to meet everybody, great riding, esp after the mist disappeared, and got back to The Smoke about two hours ago. All got numb bums but it was worth the effort of 542 miles on our C90s.

Well done Rossi for hosting a second and quite personnel meet for those who turned up. Again the local green lanes proved challenging and exhausting for those with no leccy start on there rides...!!!
Good luck to the Sahara bound crew on your scoots

Thank you Mez and PE!

I'll try and blog a few lines and post a relevant pic of the day every day, (subject to signal availaility and not being kidnapped of course) here:

enyatopbox.blogspot.com

which I will start tomorrow morning without fail. Promise. It will also go on the main scootersinthesahara.co.uk site.

And if anybody is around for the departure next Sunday from the Travelodge in Emsworth (PO10 7RB) to the docks at Portsmouth, we'd be delighted to see you. We're leaving at 0800.

Just need to find my bucket and spade then I'm all set......

Sorry, forgot to add in (as some of you kindly asked at the weekend) where you can donate money for the painting of murals in the kids mental hospital in Ulan Bataar.

This is where it's all gone so far: B. Sinclair - Mongolia
Barclays Bank
20-84-17
93302210

It's a separate account, goes nowhere near my money, no fees payable to donation companies etc and it means that I can withdraw money straight from this account to pay the local painter direct when I'm in UB.

And if you're wondering what I'm on about - murals, kids mental hospital, UB etc - then its all about doing some stuff with the kids who live in the mental home ( often they have nothing wrong with them but have been laballed difficult or unruly) and making their lives a bit more luxurious. At present they have nothing - no personal belongings, no books, nop music system, no posters etc, waer communal underwear and use communal toothbrushes etc. So the idea is to get a local painter to tart the place up and involve the community in the process. There is no money for anything except to run it on a shoestring. Enough of us have been to Mongolia and have been bowled over by the people, the scenery, the hospitality, but this is a section that most of us will never know about. I only know because my sister in law is Mongolian and worked with the place.
