It is just under 3 months until we embark on our journey from Mackay to Darwin for the Shitbox Rally in October. We are really excited and starting to get prepared for the tough adventure ahead. We would like to thank each individual and company who have made very kind donations so far. We have thoroughly enjoyed reading your words of encouragement next to your generous donations. Please keep the donations coming because money raised goes towards Cancer research and trying to find a cure for this dreaded disease.
It's with great pleasure we can now share with you photos of our Holden VT Commodore we bought for $1,000. This V6 classic is an absolute beast and will be our desert warrior. The interior photos clearly show the 20+ years of life it has lived. The air conditioning currently does not work… so hopefully we can use some bush mechanic skills to get this working before the trip! Neither Ben or myself have any camping or bushman skills or experience so that could be a worry! With over 320,000 km's already on the odometer, we are praying the car can hold up for another 3,342km, which is what we have to travel to complete the rally!
We will be ‘pimping' up the car – so far we have 3 bobbleheads for the dash. With all of the sun in October these bad boys won't stop moving. We are just hoping our car also doesn't stop moving and makes the distance!
That's all we have for now but stay tuned for our next update which will include our transformed car. We have some serious fundraising to do, so please make a donation so we can achieve and exceed our goal.
Thank you for your support.
Rob Glover and Ben Parkhill
