nice, but I noticed Captain Magadan is not listed there?
no one knows the route/area like Walter does.

I actually have considered hauling ass across Russia & spend the summer just exploring the area, as theres towns north of Magadan, so there must be some sort of trails/roads going farther north, altho I'd bet most of the travel there is via rivers. Plus the BAM would be fun to try. but I'll see how things go this year. It aint goin nowhere, I can always go back.

Oh, my bike is enroute, & I can pick it up at 10am tomorrow.

first they said I'd have to wait til monday, but I used my southern charm on the unwary fraulein, and now I can get it tomorrow

Sounds challenging and exciting!

I bet it's pretty hard to forecast the weather on the route.

We're root'n for you all the way RTW Doug.
