They have also been with some of the Moscow Off Road Riders Club who are in the area but may be going separately.
I believe from SMSs and from the pics I saw from Yakutsk, he's with Pate and 5 other Moscow guys, as well as Tom.
If you are going to do the old road when the waters are high, its best to do it with a bunch of crazy Russians who have the same objectives.
TP, if you missed it before, pics are here on Bolots site ... http://askyakutia.com/2011/08/photos...iberia-russia/
... You can see a lot of the guys ... Tom is there, Pate/Misha, Cherepakha/Volodya (if you have met him) and I think I see Big Andrei in one of the pics, dwarfing Tom ... all there together in Yakutsk
