This was so funny to see, both with roaring engines and screaming tires going 45km/h MAX
What a trip! Great crew. Best RR ever, it caused me some nice sleepless nights already and also it gave my GF reason to complain...
Discovered it only recently but already made it almost to page 100. I just can't wait to read it all and the other RRs too! I got a XC last summer and now I know what to do.

So, Prutser, if you guys liked the Lada rallye so much, how about this one??

Thanks for the update! Is there any estimation, even a rough one, of when it's going to be ready? (not that I'm impatient or anything )

Hehe. I'll stay in the country this year, have promised my wife, we have 10 years wedding anniversary this summer.
Last year EtronX and I had a 2,5 week, 7400km trip to Kola Peninsula.
But right now it's snowing and cold here in Norway so I definitely need some inspiration to go exploring ;-)

Thanks

I have read this road report from start to finish. It has been inspiring and sometimes scary . While I don't see myself doing a huge of off road trip of this nature it has (in part) being the inspiration for a "pole to pole" trans America trip with a modified KLR 650. Keeping off the Pan American highway of course.

Thanks to everyone for their collective wisdom.

Fantastic!

What an EPIC, EPIC RR! It took me more than a month of off/on reading but I finished it! The stories, the photos, the words and the highly intelligent banter from and among the characters are simply amazing to read through. It's so been worth my time to follow this RR with whatever free time I get. I love this story and I cannot get enough of it! Great work!

Walter thanks for doing this thread, it's truly inspiring to see how stunning and interesting the world is. I'd really like to get off this island country of mine and go out and see the places you've seen, i.e, Russia, Mongolia and Europe, when the time is right for me. I'll be prepping my XC for that soon too...

Thanks to all the characters/writers/contributors to this story. Stand tall. You're my heroes and idols.

Beautiful. Simply beautiful.
