Butterflies & Jerry Cans

We’ve still not started looking for a car yet … and with only 14 weeks to go it’s now starting to hit home what we’re doing. Every time I think about it I feel like I’ve swallowed a swarm of butterflies and need to go to the loo.

So there’s no car yet, but we do have two 20 ltr jerry cans, for petrol, for the car we don’t have yet – how organised are we :-)) I think they’ve been used for diesel in the past, so not quite sure if I can just fill them with petrol and the car will like it – any ideas?

We’re hoping to have a mini pre-adventure at the end of June, a kind of trial run. Hopefully we’ll have a car by then so we’re going to drive the length and breadth of the country over one weekend. Not sure how many miles that is, because I’ve not looked at a map yet, but it sounds like a good idea … well if you compare it to my idea to drive to Mongolia, it is!

So that’ll give us about 4 weeks or so after our mini-adventure to iron out any problems before the big push. It also means our sponsors will get UK wide coverage.

The next few weeks are going to be busy. But first we need a car!
