Do you ever get down this way or do we wait for better weather and meet somewhere in the middle?

btw, when you crossed into Siberia in 2012 on the crossing near Oskeman, you said you were going to try the other road to the border...rather than the one I took. What was the condition and did you take any photos?
i'm not sure if i want to do the bam. I've been reading the RR of Rob en Dafne de Jong and they couldn't finish while following the track of Walter this summer. They returned by train.

I picked up a car that runs 50mpg, I'll head west next month if you pm me a date.

I didn't do that crossing..I missed a turnoff at some roundabout and ended up way further west and in some really soft sand. And with a limited water supply under the burning sun... one of the heaviest days
So i ended up crossing the border with all the mongolia rally guys
2012 summer holiday
