More than you could manage! A single night's camping, out of 6 weeks.
Some people!

Unless you include the night in a car in Vlad (and the next day)

Excellent

The problem I have with all your RR's is figuring out which one of your pictures to use for screen savers since they are all so awesome.

In for another excellent Colebatch adventure.

Subscribed, of course.
Bike was garaged in Astana Kazakhstan over winter. I rode it to Moscow in Early April .... i.e. I still havent got home with the bike yet...

The Off-Road challenge was April 24 to May 10 this year ... first few days camping had below freezing nights. We all left Moscow with 6-7 layers of clothes on. By the end of the trip it was 25C (about 80F) during the day ... and it was T-shirt and riding jacket weather.

Boy-Band haircut grew out over Xmas.

Dunes

We quickly found it was a lot quicker going tackling the grassy dunes themselves, rather than the sandy tracks that went through them.

Mishutka here indulging in some last minute bike prep - russian style. If brute force cant fix it, its not worth fixing !

Why brute force?
Notice he is holding this instrument with only two fingers of the left hand ..
his impact is precisely
