DAN MURDOCH (UK) is a journalist and is so proud of it that he puts it down on every visa application they fill out. Unfortunately for the others this often causes more delays and bureaucracy. He never complains when the Trabis breakdown because it’s a good excuse to drink. A long enough delay means he can coax Megan and Marlena into helping him sniff out the nearest party while Tony and the others are left repairing the Trabis. He is quoted with saying “fixing cars is Blue Collar and I’m not”, but by the time they reach Mongolia Tony’s patience with Dan’s poorly maintained car Fez wears out. In the frigid -20C Gobi winter Dan is forced to put down his pen and help Carlos replace Fez’s clutch plate.
