CBPG Fan Club Weblog

Just another WordPress.com weblog

You go girlz!!!

The CBPG girls totally left us a comment saying they appreciate our crushing on them even through their reluctance to shower!  You know what the Fan Club says to that?!?!  Showering is bad for the environment anyway!  We’re so over showers.  Go girlzzz!!!!

The Fan Club has had a bit of a hiatus in posting due to various personal circumstances, but the team somehow managed to make it to Turkey anyway.  We realized that their blog posts were slowing down even as their Twitter feed ramped up, and we were relieved today when their blog post revealed to us that they’ve been blogging on Outside Magazine a lot. We didn’t know!!  So we made a list of links to their Outside Magazine blog posts in the 3rd sidebar.  There’s no obvious way to automate it though, so you’ll have to wait for us to post links by hand.

In team news, the girls and the boys split up in the secular Turkish country.  We just learned that Andrew is the only team member with a car in real life!!  Who knew?!!  Now everyone!!!!!!  The team is so awesome.  Cars are bad for the environment too.  Unless you’re in Mongolia!  Then any environmental damage is offset by the humanitarian aide a car provides.  Go team!!!!!


We have an international following!

We just had our first posting from someone who actually SAW the CBPG on route!  Steffen from Europe saw their car and found our website on “gegoogelt” which is like the European Google!  Here is what he said (translated by Google!!): 

You are driven past me! Madness! I wondered what I make, have your logo and photographed gegoogelt … and now I’m official FAN CLUB member! That’s awesome!

Welcome to the FC, Steffen!

And say hi to Eastern Europe for us, CBPG!

An open letter to the Adventurists

Dear Adventurists,

The CBPG Fan Club sadly missed the live internets showing of the launch.  We wish you would post the highlights soon.

But we did find an amazing new feature on the Adventurists website.  You can track all the teams who are updating via text.  Whee!  But we don’t see any CBPG texts.  😦

The end,

CBPG Fan Club

Launch time: tomorrow!!

In the placeholder screen on the CBPG blog for that last video, I really feel like Andrew is just staring at me.  So, hi Andrew!!

The news from the blog: everybody is in Europe!  Actually, after announcing that, they all went to England!  (And not Wales.)  Hooray!  But, as far as we know, they are yet to be united in Oxford.  Will Andrew make it??? Will Anand stop working an join the team sometime soon?

The fan club wants to hear from the other team members too!  I mean, we love Andrew, but…. he just keeps staring out from that picture.  Heelllloooooooo….

By the way… the launch is tomorrow!  The 18th!

GO CBPG!!!!!!!!

Note: In a previous version of this post, the author was confused by Andrew’s strange sleep/post schedule and thought that the launch was on the 17th. It is actually the 18th.


They love us! They really love us!  The team has shouted out to us on their blog!!!  AND, Sarah left us a comment!!!!!  Woooo!

As for the love poll, the balance already seems to be tipping towards Andrew and Cammie.  He’s already met her family!?! And swam in the pool!!??  That probably constitutes marriage in Ulaanbaatar.

We’ll close with a song: Bastille Day by Rush (from lyricsfreak.com)
Theres no bread, let them eat cake
Theres no end to what theyll take
Flaunt the fruits of noble birth
Wash the salt into the earth

But theyre marching to bastille day la guillotine will claim
Her bloody prize free the dungeons of the innocent the king
Will kneel, and let his kingdom rise

Bloodstained velvet, dirty lace
Naked fear on every face
See them bow their heads to die
As we would bow as they rode by

And were marching to bastille day la guillotine will claim
Her bloody prize sing, o choirs of cacophony the king has
Kneeled, to let his kingdom rise

Lessons taught but never learned
All around us anger burns
Guide the future by the past
Long ago the mould was cast

For they marched up to bastille day la guillotine — claimed
Her bloody prize hear the echoes of the centuries power isnt
All that money buys

Breaking news: Second team member will arrive sometime soon!

We at the CBPG Fan Club have uncovered some exciting inside info from the Word of the Day on the Team Blog: Sarah is going to London on a plane soon!  That means that Andrew will be in France and Sarah will be in London. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if they ever manage to reach each other, what with all the car registration issues mentioned in our previous post.  But we think they can probably do it!  Will Sarah take a train to France?  Maybe a ferry?  Or will she just hang out and wait for Andrew to get the car to London?  And where are the other two team members?!?!?!?!

No word yet on registration

Hi CBPGFC followers!

We expected an update today on  CBPG‘s progress with registering the Skoda, but so far no news.  You know what they say about no news being good news though, right?  We’re hoping that the team registerer is just chatting up the nice government workers right now, getting them to allow the car to be driven in France, and then out of France to England, and then back to France again on the way to MONGOLIA!  We’ll keep you all updated with any information we recieve.

While we’re at it, we thought we’d ask a question that many of our members have been asking: do you think the members of CBPG are single, dating, or interested in dating? Take our poll and let us know!
