Introduction

Hi, thanks for visiting One Ball Rally and I hope you enjoy your stay!
I have organised this event in order to raise awareness primarily (if you are male, check your balls right this second for any growths!) about testicular cancer and also to raise a bit of cash for the Association of International Cancer Research, who carry out sterling work to combat this terrible disease.

We now have a full bio page of the One Ball Rally Team which you can now find here http://oneballrallyers.blogspot.com/

Day 4







Off to Frankfurt today - bad start though as the Sat Nav still refuses to load the European maps. We decide to head out of Brussels (courtesy of some 'creative' driving by Dave) and stop to get it sorted out. We stop in Hooegarden near the brewery and have a swap over driving - we manage to get the Sat Nav working and Ad takes over to drive into Germany.

We are greeted by a snow storm and truly atrocious driving conditions, we also find out that Salzburg (next stop after Frankfurt) is one of Austria's ski resorts and is in ski season. A quick check reveals that our wardrobe consists of t-shirts and a few pairs of jeans!

We arrive in Frankfurt and head straight to the bar. We spot a guitar and a pair of bongos hanging on the wall - after a few massive bottles of Becks we launch into a rendition of Wonderwall and then some Pilky freestyling.

Can't upload any photos at the moment but there wil be more to follow. Off to Salzburg tomorrow - could be interesting.

Mileage 816

Be careful on the Austrian roads guys - there is a huge pile up on the Salzburg road today:

Just wanted to add my best wishes as a fellow AICR fundraiser - I completed a walk from New York to Los Angeles last year. And you probably know about Dave Toolan and Stuart Hamilton, who did the same thing, also for AICR. So you're the latest in a long line of eccentrics raising money for a great cause!
All the best, Phil Goddard
