Rally To Mongolia

A couple of weeks ago, Dick spoke with Bill Caswell. Bill used to be an investment banker. But after he got laid off, he chose an unlikely new career: rally car driving. Scott Brills heard the interview and wrote to say: "I thought you might be interested in what I did last summer.  I drove a 2001 Geo Metro from Detroit to New York, shipped it to London, picked up the car, and continued on 10,000 miles and 17 countries to Mongolia. Along the way we were marooned in no-man's-land, held captive by corrupt police, stuck at numerous border crossings, and had our car break down in the middle of Tajikistan on a 10,000 foot plateau--seven hours from the nearest town." Scott joins Dick to tell his story.
