116m above sea level...
Many previous expeditions (including one of our own) have found that trying to reach Italy via the fabled Stelvio Pass route is no simple matter.
This time many many hours have been spent on the expedition preparations, not least of which is a specially designed wax applied to the cars to reduce wind resistance on the steep and dangerous climb.
And so it is that we are nearly ready for the off. Many of you have been in contact with our back room 'bunker' staff asking if there will be regular updates again this year and all we can say is YES.
