Bad Colonies team in Asia

Posted By on Fri, Jul 28, 2006 at 2:21 PM

If you've always wanted to drive across Asia in a tiny, beat-up used car, you might enjoy this. The Bad Colonies Motoring Cooperative, brainchild of Bristol resident Seth Nathaniel Beck, is competing in this year's Mongol Rally. I wrote a story about these guys last month (Mongolia or Bust).

Beck bought a handheld computer for the trip that lets him and his teammates update their blog from the road. It looks like they're currently stuck in Ukraine, waiting to cross the border into Kazakhstan.

Team member Vaughn writes:

Ifthere’s one thing we’ve all learned, it’s that Kiev is mediocre,Ukraine is a dump, the girls are pretty nonetheless, and we would nevermind if we never came back. Right now BCMC is hoping that we get somethingto help us cross the border, otherwise we have to play catchup to theother two teams. We have all agreed, as well, that crossing Kazakhstanin a convoy of four cars is the best idea, protecting us from seriousbreakdown issues and bandits. Yes, there is a good chance that a one totwo car convoy might get harassed; three to four much less so.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
