I do carry an MSR filter on bike and hiking trips and use it if there is any question as to the safety of the water (if there is lots of large animal sign around)

Remember this discussion of the Lykov hermits, a couple of months ago?

Guess what: the Sibirsky crew was leading the way in cultural exploration, with general media following only now.

I just opened my copy of "The Week", which arrived today. What do I see: a feature article on the Lykovs!

It seems it is the same article that was mentioned by redroom. Old-hat news for the readers of this thread.

Over Christmas my daughters were home and were contemplating a holiday in their idle time. After a few bites at this thread, somewhat inspired, they arrived in St Petersburg last night and are enroute for Beijing by train. Not an mc off road adventure, but an adventure for them all the same. Great and inspiring story here for sure.

Rethinking life at this point

This amazing adventure has me rethinking my plans for the next decade. I have been gearing up gradually to do several adventure trips in 'more difficult' parts of the world by 4x4 VW campervan, but now I think I will sell the Aprilia Pegaso, buy a KTM or BMW Adventure bike and start looking at slightly altered plans.

Thanks for taking us along on this amazing adventure and opening our eyes to a part of the world as we never knew existed!

Moroccan DVD is at last out now.

In PAL only at this stage ...

I am guessing it will be available late this year.

Note, there is an interim DVD, called Moroccan Extreme, which will be on the same site early next week available for sale. Its from the ride I did before this ride, with two Russian guys in Morocco, retracing some of the classic pistes used in the African Dakar races.

A preview of that is below.



At this stage I have printed the DVD only in PAL (rest of the world) version. If there is enough demand from North America, I will also do an NTSC version. But I am figuring at this point that Morocco appeals to Europeans predominantly. Contact me directly if anyone has specific demand for an NTSC version.

FYI, PAL version plays on pretty much any computer with a DVD drive, but will not play in North American standalone DVD players. I had no trouble watching it on two of my Macs and Im in California. AND, because its PAL, the resolution is actually slightly larger/better than a regular NTSC DVD, so it looks better when ripped to an iPad/iPhone-friendly file for viewing on the go

Hello Walter

I bought the dvd "Sibirsky extreme project" last summer and there is a file which is not readable (VTS_06_2.VOB). Can you help me with this file?

Thanks
Cristian / Bob

Is this true of a generic external CD/DVD drive?
