Great tip, I have added the waypoint. Currently it is a bit off the route, as we're planning on crossing the Balkans towards Dubrovnik, if time allow. Actually almost the same route you did along the Adriatic Sea, just south to north and a detour to Plitvicka National Park. Thanks for sharing that awesome RR!
But if we don't have enough time, we may end up having to skip the Balkans this time and take a more directly route back to Scandinavia, in which case the Bear Cave could be a nice sight to see.

I'm not sure I can find the route on the map, so if you wouldn't mind drawing the route on Google Earth, that would be really helpful.

Regards,
Jesper
Hi Jesper,

This weekend I will go and check the entire route, than I will be able to give some realistic info regarding the road, the accomodation and so on!

Br,

Traveling

I'm very excited for our journey, this is the kind of think that I've only dreamed about. Thank you for letting me tag along Jesper.

So far we have been able to plan to meet other inmates in their home countries or other countries, which will make the trip only more amazing. It's great how other ADV members are so willing to help us along the way and show us local treasures we otherwise never experience.

exotesthrasouden, great that you want to tag along. Adventures are better when they are shared. And I agree, the replies we've got to this thread shows how committed fellow adv riders are to help each other. Awesome! Can't wait!

Hello Guys,

No info on the route, since my bike did not started on Friday, have been in the area though but it rained as hell, Friday was nice but Saturday and Sunday we had the shittiest rain ever!

Under these sort of conditions the route can not be done.

Even the guys from 4x4forum use winches on those trails when it is muddy!

Let us hope for sunny days,

unudani

unidani, thanks for the update. We'll cross our fingers for better conditions. I guess a couple of days with dry weather can make a lot of difference?

More than that: I just came back from a business trip where we'd been fighting the Bulgarian mountains in a 4x4, and I was devastated that I didn't had my bike with me. I'm jealous!


Oh, and while it was raining most of the time, the forecast for the next weeks is bright.


So pleeease, bring us back a ride report and let us dream ...

Having a job that takes you to the Bulgarian mountains in 4x4 make me jealous! Here I am, sitting in the office fixing software bugs .

I'd like to make a RR, I will give it a try, definitely, but I won't do that until we're back. You can follow us on our facebook page www.facebook.com/MCTour2012 until then.

I know, I have wanted to make a ride report ever since we returned, but so far only got to the second day. I will try harder.

Yes, we should have written a ride report. I have no excuses. Although we did spend a lot of time we could have spend on the report, on researching options for the 2013 trip. 3 weeks, beginning on May 19th into Romania and Ukraine. More backroads and more gravel. We're actually looking for another rider to join us.

Jesper should we start another thread for that though?

I passed on the PMS joke you made, good stuff.
