We have arrived to a Canadian gold mine "KUPOL". Not to the gold mine itslef which was few km south but a "KUPOL" division building winter roads.
As all local drivers were saying the canadian winter roads are a work of art.

A russian winter road is build this way that there is bulldozer going in winter and there is a caravan of cars behind him. When there is more snow the bulldozer goes again and again.

The Canadians start to prepare the surface in summer already. When it gets cold thay sprey water on this so it freezes and they have a perfect surface. Then the snow falls and apparently its working like a highway.

Mirek has some photos from the gold mine itself so I will post later. Its an incredible thing. In the middle of nowhere a big city (for chukokta standards) super hiper equiped like a moon station.

We thought the Kamaz will catch us but he didnt so our tanks were empty. But in the Kupol station they had a polaris quad so they could give us some fuel so we could continue.

you are right; you would have to go back to page 96; the plan was to get to anadyr through northern kamchatka but we did not make it to Evensk for few reasons; we decided to spend August on trying the northern route (which was also completly unknown) but with a lot o luck we had (kolyma boat, low level of water) it turned out to be quite easy;

Hello fellow adventurers!

I just came home from a 5 day work trip in Poland, spending it in and around Kraków. I just have to say, the country is beautiful, especially when you come further south toward the Tatra region. We had the best of luck hitting the cold week with blizzards in Kraków, a thing unheard of from what the locals tell me.

And oh my god we drank (664).
And oh my god we didn't sleep (665).
And oh my god your women are beautiful (666)!

PS. My girlfriend provides sex again, so you can stop worrying about me and my fingernails.
