The Days are drawing ever closer to the time of departure. Which I'm sure that you have all already picked up on by now "THAT'S CHRISTMAS DAY"! So with Santa putting his feet up in front of the fire after his hard night of work, our intrepid team shall begin there's. And, whereas old St. Nicks Work lasts only one night, ours won't see us touching foot in the UK again until Mid January. Beat that Claus.
www.Tukshop.biz. It seems that the challenge of driving them isn't going to be all that bad. OK, so that's a lie, The Captain stalled, and although the others were better (notably Seb with his motor cycle prowess), everyone soon realised that although these things are easy to drive, they are also easy to crash, easy to roll, easy to carry.
We even managed a little attention gathering done whilst bumping around a carpark in Southampton. We posed happily for the Press and Chatted away for the Beeb, and other film crews. Though nothing is as good at publicising our team as trying to adhere as many stickers saying TEAM GSR as you can to everything in site. Whether people knew they were victim to sticker plastering or not, everyone present bore one, even the Rickshaw itself fell victim. Spreading the word was never more fun!
Special News, We've received contact from a few additional International Sponsor wannabes in the US and in India. If everything goes well, we'll be able to announce more official team Sponsors over the next week - so keep a look out here, and on our main site www.TeamGSR.co.uk.
Team News: Everyone, except for Lyle that is, is now Visa in Hand, Ticket in Hand and are ready to hit the wonderful world of Tuk-Tuk heaven that is Delhi, our Indian entry point! We've even looked at a map - then thought that was a silly idea and returned to our drinks - but we at least gazed at one for a minute or so!
Lets start to think about Revving those Engines (substitute at will the words Rrevving and Engine, Pushing and Rickshaws)
