I just got a message from London that my application for a visa to Mongolia has been granted. Being the last one in the team to get this visa granted, this now means that all paperwork that is absolutely essential for our journey is done. There are still more visas and other paperwork that needs to be done, but nothing of that could derail the entire journey if it fails. This is how you spell relief!
You lucky Europeans... you get to register your car like a normal person. My rally team was all from the US and got turned away from Russia two times, and pulled over once, before we managed to register our vehicle properly. :)
