It's not about being there, it's about getting there
The Dumball was founded by a bunch of like minded individuals who were fed up with reading about the japes of the rich and famous taking part in the Gumball Rally and wanted a piece of the action - on a fraction of the budget. So, they decided to create the ultimate peasant's road trip.
What we do is very straight forward really. We all buy a cheap car, do it up beyond all belief, get in fancy dress, then drive in convoy, to a far away place, and 99 percent of us simply leave the car at our destination, get on a plane, and fly right home. We stick together, we arrange big parties, we shout, sing, dance and drink a lot. (but we don't drink and drive) That's what we do. We're now in our sixth year and have so far driven to Athens, Istanbul, Corfu, Helsinki and Sicily. In 2012 we will be heading to Odessa, Ukraine!
