Be careful out there Noah, sorry about the weather but good on ya for keeping a level head and not ruining your equipment by attempting it by yourself
A few km before the Vitam bridge, some local Russians told us a German guy fell off the Vitam and died a few weeks earlier. They were talking about Joe... (over inflated story of course). We figured if someone had bit the bullet off the vitam we would have heard about it. Still.. not the type of news you want to hear 15 km prior to crossing.

Another change of plans.

Well. It keeps on raining. Komsomosk might soon be underwater. Last night we had to move our bikes from the storage garage because it was going to be underwater soon. I have to get out of town before there is no way out.. or I would have to wait for maybe a month before the water goes down? This would not be a problem but I am officially in the freindzone with Sveta I don't see a reason to stay.

And another shitty side note.. after 11 month, 23 days of growing an amazing beard.. a misunderstanding with a Russian barber lady ended it. I was enjoying getting my hair cut short so I had my eyes closed.. in deep thought.. and I feel the buzzer going up my left cheek. I open my eyes to see almost half my beard gone. WTF lady! I freaked out but the damage was already done. It all or nothing so it came off. I didn't make it to 1 year so I guess I'll have to start over.

Beards come and beards go, but women... Hmmm, is it the same or no?

I think you need to spend a few month in the "Down under" it would cheer you up for sure

Just a thought.

Noah,

Bad luck!

Get back on the road and you'll be right in a few days.

And don't forget......

Plenty more fish in the sea......
