Latest Project: A Poor Man's Winter
Welcome to the bad colonies' website.This site is dedicated to the exploits of those individuals that find humor and adventure on the open road. You'll find detailed information on the 2006 Mongol Rally and extensive posts from our adventures. We are already planning the next catastrophe, which will be glorious. In the mean time we will continue to update this site with different gnarly tales of gnarly stuff.
What is the bad colonies motoring coooperative?
Way back in 2005, Dominic and I decided to participate in the 2006 Mongol Rally. We created the bad colonies motoring cooperative as catch all organization for like minded idiots that want to participate in a whole bunch of really stupid activities involving cars in the name of charity and free poorly written online literature (i.e. run on sentences). Keep your ears open cause the BCMC has just started to roll.
Life is like a Ford Fiesta on the Mongol Rally, once started it will stall if left to idle. - Seth

The Official Minstrel of the BCMC - Sven Curth
Sven is good people and makes better than average music that does not suck. Want proof, the team consistently played his solo release "Me and Jim" while driving on the Mongol Rally. In fact, the convoy has since requested copies to play on the radio in London. The real question here is why haven't you bought your copy yet. Available here.
Stop by www.hot-fat.com, say hi and buy a cd or two.

It’s now been over 48 hours since any individual from the teams have written any communiques back to this web page or the super secret e-mail address. It would be easy to blame the absinthe, and decide that our friends are just taking a while to recover…
But since we last heard from them on July24th, and they were off to “Krakow or beyond!” They’re probably just surfing that heat wave into Ukraine. If things had gone wrong they’d probably have oodles of time to stop and write and send a little note about how things were going. That is, unless things went really wrong… Hmmm this might be worth looking into:
To answer the question we’ve turned to the definitive expert on all topics, the interweb. Has anything newsworthy flummoxed our teams of lazy non-summiters?
Google news only returned one story with information dated after the team’s last post.
Clearly, border crossings–like their collie brethren–can be a real pain sometimes. For what it’s worth this picture show’s one of the day trip possibilities out of Krakow.
Another source for recent and nearly relevant mongol rally updates is the organizing organization’s team text message page used by several of the Euro teams found here.
No sign of our favorite teams in any of the write ups. A good sign if ever there was one, anything truly bad would be bandied about for sure. (unless no one knows yet..-ed. No one asked you! This is supposed to be a reassuring summary paragraph, not a fear mongoring paranoia-fest!)
Anyways, we can probably rest easy for now knowing that the Tigglywinkians and L’il Larrys are fine, and enjoying getting away from it all. If they can’t find it in themselves to write every once in a while, it is most likley because of some strange issue with that fandangled phone-email higgy jiggy. (and not because they’re stranded in a roadside ditch reeking of overripe absinthe? -ed. Actually, knowing them, let’s not rule anything out.)
