Glad you are picking up on your ride report.
I find this all very facinating and appreciate the time it takes to post. So please continue. Great pictures by the way. It looks cold and lonely in places. Great place to clear your head?
I have two questions if you do not mind:
1. You changed tents. How did the new one work over all?
2. In post 4 above, you stated: "(You'll probably know about the tunnel and the entry/exit fee etc. so I won't bother you with details.)" I would love the details on the tunnel and fees :-)
Thanks again for sharing. I look forward to more installments
