Doug, your video reminds me of the line in Wall Street. Some crap Charlie Sheen says about if he was rich, he'd ride a motorcycle across China. You're proving that it doesn't take a lot of money to do this stuff and have a fantastic experience. Good for you!

Doug - keep that up and you could find yourself appointed to the Council of Economic Advisors.

I prefer it the way Sheryl Crow puts it...... "It's not having what you want, it's wanting what you've got!"

From the Spot it seems they leave Yakustk and are waiting for a ferry...

I will be at Magadan waiting for them, flying to there thursday, and crossing Russia riding back one of the bikes (Hansjorg in a GS650Dakar) that are traveling the Road of Bones with Doug

Bad weather there, raining, it seems the Old Summer Road is with too much water to allow river crossing and the new Urst' Nera Road had two bridges down... But Hansjorg said he will arrive at Magadan at least Sunday

If Doug were rich, he might. 'Cause he hasn't yet… AFAIK

But yeah… Doug's doing it right!!!

Doug still seems to be on the road at maybe 19:00hrs or later his time, heading east from Uolba. Probably still daylight as he's a long way north at 62.6 lattitude. In fact not far south of the Arctic Circle.
