A husband and wife team; Sam Southey and Tim Mullan, set off for Outer Mongolia with the objective of riding on horseback across the country. Sam & Tim have been planning, saving & working towards this trip since 2006. They have delayed twice due to a lack of funds. They had a scare in November 2012 with four months remaining until the planned departure date, when their Mongolian sponsor’s accountant forgot to pay a bill and the website/phone account got suspended making the sponsor impossible to contact.
When not exploring Sam works as a Learning and Development Trainer and Tim as an IT Project Manager.
They left for Outer Mongolia on Wednesday 13th March.
This blog details their story as they attempt their first ever Long Ride.
