Wow, that is a fantastic part of Russia!!
I was in your country this year (going to Mongolia) and last year (Caucasus mountain) but never visited that part of Russia. Many years ago I went to Nordkapp and I was thinking what would it look like if I crossed the border :)
Very nice report

Well, Hans, Ivan said that he remember you and that place perfectly. He sent photoes to you but he doubt that he have your correct e-mail adress. He glads that you remember him and sends his greetings to you

Also he asks don`t you want to visit our traditional Russian summit of adventure riders? He is one of organizers and will be glad to see you there next year.

And if you will come, he will organize the Third winter trip of riders from www.moto-travels.ru It`ll be for crazy foreign ADV riders especially Russian extremely sort of riding below the freezing piont

Very nice. Thanks for that. But he will not see me in winter. For me... summer only. Although as hot as this summer ... that was too much.

Don't know yet where I go exactly but if I come in Moscow area next summer I will contact him (or you). No trips needed... just a beer will do.

Thank you, Donogh!!!

Donogh, Thank you for making the effort to post your journey. Now we have seen an area of Russia that National Geographic neglects. Wonderful photographs, great story and the most interesting people; thanks again. Dave

Donogh, Thanks for taking us along on your adventure...

Very interesting pictures.
It is a big world and most people only have a very very small narrow view, you do not...
Thanks
