It was a hot ride, but it got cooler as we got higher. There was a military checkpoint about ˝ way, they logged us into a book, & looked at our docs. The area by the mountain is very close to the new republic od south ossetia, formerly part of Georgia, and so they are keeping tabs on the area. There are also Chechnyen terrorists hiding in the mountains, there was a wall full of pictures of wanted guys in the police station. We got close to the end of the road & agreed it was worth the trip. Its so beautiful here! The road ends, & theres some motels, a ski lift, and some old babushkas selling souvenirs. Poly had been wanting a sheepskin for her seat, so we bought one here, it was only 20 bucks, and done really nice. There was also a bearskin for 200, but I wasn’t sure how that would work at the borders, but I was really tempted to buy it.

They also had some snazzy hats. Poly wanted one, but wouldn’t fit under her helmet

I thought I’d be great, for an abba reunion tour.
