For collarbones, arms, legs that plan (although I had to think about it a while) seems quite workable as long as a rider is in a place that is frequently frequented. As already has been noted, you are a bold, courageous fellow! Looking forward to the next installment!

Enjoying the ride
You are a true adventurer

looking forward to more on PMR as it was the the only border on my Eastern Europe travels where I was held for several hours and shaken down for a bride by corrupt border official and a Tempress like her in uniform

Sorry a "Bribe" but you could probably get a Bride for the right money easily there

well it really seems you enjoy your life, Wesley
say hi to Pamirs - tell them I'll be back someday
what is the weather now like in TJK? I am not sure at all, I thought it would be rather cold there nowadays..?
enjoy your trip and stay safe

PS: you really killed me when you said you had no insurance

Man, you do get around, don't you? A bit of a holiday and you're off to the Pamir's on a pushbike! Crikey! Great update! Your ability to very quickly make friends despite language barriers is beyond impressive.
