Team Quarter Life Crisis

 2 chaps, 5 weeks, 1 jeep, 8,500 miles, 1/3 of the world on a shoestring...

Wish List 

The follow list of equipment is a list of everything we'd like to try to crowbar into the boot to give us the best chance of getting there and not dying. If you can help us out with anything on the list, whether it be new shiny gear or an old one you've got in the attic just calling out to be driven a third of the way round the world, we'd be enormously grateful!
