We made it!
We officially reached our goal this morning!
When we started this fundraiser on Kickstarter, we had no idea how much interest we would receive. Turns out, lot of people want to find out what sounds can be found across the center of the Eurasian corridor. We promise to bring you back lots of audio goodies and keep them coming for a long time to come after the Rally is complete.
When is the Mongol Rally, you ask? The official start is July 23, 2011 in the UK. From there, all teams meet in the Czech Republic for the second launch on July 25. Then everyone is on their own. We expect this journey to take approximately 5 weeks, given our route, and the available time we have.
You may notice that we set the date to end this fundraiser for sometime in early August. Like I said, we had no idea how much interest we'd receive, so we thought we'd go for the max amount of time. Turns out that wasn't necessary, but now that we've set the date, its too late to turn back. So keep spreading the word, and with more backers, we'll return with even more sounds!
Thanks so much to our backers for all of your support!
