TRAVELERS UNDERTAKING the Mongol Rally have to be super resourceful and open to new ideas on the road. In the fourth episode of “Adventures in Mongol Rally Land,” Leon Logothetis and his rally partner Steve finally reach the Mongolian border. Almost to their destination of Ulaanbaatar, they must first spend a night in a cow pen, complete with toilet facilities nicknamed the “long drop of hell.” Respite comes in the form of Russian vodka made from mushrooms.

After dealing with the border crossing, Leon and Steve encounter a group of local children who enjoy some of the duo’s supplies as they make their way to Hovd. After getting turned around, the ralliers are led in the right direction by a friendly local, known only as “9989.”
