Not hurting... just aware of what I had. I have lots of distraction in mongolia. The riding has been amazing. So its good. I'll see her soon again.

Amazing report!

Questions re: your fork seal fix. So you didn't replace anything? Did you put in more fork oil?

I didn't even replace the lost oil. I'll service my forks in Irkutsk before the BAM.

This is getting epic. I can only imagine (until I do it myself, that is) what effect a RTW can have on changing one's views, personality... and with a romance... unforgettable memories. Just beautiful. Godspeed Noah!

Wow Noah! After 3 days, I just finish re reading your whole report to refresh my head on where and what on your fabulous trip.
Only question is , just how much post processing do you do on your photos or are they as come out of the camera. Great shots by the way.

Processing?

I have a Sony NEX 5 that I keep on automatic. I use Picasa 3 because it will auto upload. It also has some editing stuff that I don't use much. Sometimes I click the "i'm feeling lucky" button, if it looks better than the original, I keep it.

Auto when traveling is my mode also and I do take quite a few pictures while rolling. Kinda hard to play with settings then. ;p-) Picasa is my GO TO also. Fast, Easy, Cheap. ;-)

Russian drivers are bad. But so is all of Asia.

Worst place to drive? UlaanBataar. The roads and signals have really no rhyme or reason. So many cars. People are horrible to each other. Speeding up to block other people from merging, swerving at people if they are drifting. Its crazy. I feel safer riding the sidewalk then on the road.
