We enjoy your posts.

I think I can say this for everyone, that we all hope the best for you and your family and that you stay safe.

Thanks, mate! I do feel appreciated, your company and your interest have really been very strong positive emotions generators ever since I joined the ADVrider community.

Not going to show the other pictures

We both carry a small aluminum plate for parking on soft spots. I think I'm using the same plate as I did that day on the beach.

Pic is too big to fit my browser. Can you shrink it a little?

Thanks brother man! I couldnt zoom in on that pic enough to see what was in the photo. Kinda looked like a bike, or a wagon maybe. Any who, thanks for the education;-)

No, it's the famous tachanka - a horse-drawn cart with the Maxim machinegun mounted, one of the deadliest weapons of the Russian Civil War ( 1918-1920 ):



Nestor Makhno ( leader of the anarchist insurgents in the south of the former Russian Empire ) was believed to be its inventor - the first who'd fell upon the idea of adding the superiority in range and firepower of heavy water-cooled machineguns to the manouevrability of sturdy double-horse carts confiscated from the German colonists. Most probably not true - I read about the Boers using the similar fighting vehicles during the Anglo-Boer wars twenty years earlier.

In modern Ukraine N. Makhno and his anarchist movement have gained some sort of cult following among the youngs who would align themselves neither to the socialist nor to the capitalist doctrine ( more or less like neo-Zapatista in Mexico ):




Some even have their cars painted in the Makhno tachanka-style:
