It's Day 31, the expedition is halfway through Russia, and with the traffic getting worse the further west they go, the crews opt for a back road. But Russian back roads are always a struggle, and the Spyker ends up in a ditch. It is pulled out unscathed but, at day's end, little distance has been covered. Moscow marks the first farewell from the expedition: Keith Brodie's wife, Louise, is going home, so his mate, Peter Brown, is flown in as co-driver. Then Lang makes a shock announcement - John Matheson is leaving the expedition and striking out alone. His son, Mick, takes this loss hard. Today is the final day. It is a sweltering 86 degrees and the expedition is facing Parisienne traffic. Then, in a surprise turn of events, John Matheson rejoins the group just in time for their celebratory circuit around Paris. They made it across half the world - five old cars and a bunch of romantics. In the end, they made it together.
