Мишутка не падает! :)))


1. Mishutka not fall
Only if needed for the common cause of astronautics or for self-preservation.

2. Dimensions and weight of the camera certainly interfere, but if I did not hurt nobody would spin saw these photos.
Photo equipment to carry the baggage that means doing 1-2 frames per day and then parked.

3. Bag pretty decent, but heavy rain still gets wet.
The accompanying cover wind blows at speeds over 50 km / h

I prefer low fender. Clean radiator is much more important than hypothetical chance of that kind of dirt where it is still possible to ride but only with high fender.
And I made it 3 cm higher than standard one.

Fantastic report and the videos are incredible! I liked the time lapse of your campsite. The scenery is beautiful and your group is full of personality. I can't wait for more!

That night you could here clink-clink sound as our frozen balls knocked together.

Wind from an icy gorge paced the rhythm.



Hot tea in the morning brought us back to life.

Despite the fact that the sun has risen a long time ago,
it was freezing in the crevice. We struck the camp with numb fingers.

Andrew Abbott checks for "free riders" in the space hangar.



Zombieland is waiting for us.
Handygayty village is the last point with a gas station before entering Mongolia.
There is still a part of the gorge and then an open plateau.





It has become warmer and the road was significantly prettier. 950 perked up.





Tuva people are pretty creative, even if they work in the road construction business.
Sign clearly displays the fairway!



Common architectural style is “zealous minimalism"



Flora and fauna are also present



Sometimes asphalt patches can be found.





I would like to note that Handygayty has got thoroughly prettier for those six years that I was not there.
There are new houses and old ones are renovated and painted. I was pleasantly surprised.
There are three gas stations now!



Our expedition made a splash on the border.
But despite the friendly atmosphere, they made us ​​to carry all the luggage for inspection.
What were they looking for remained unclear.

The situation at the border became comical.
Half of the team stuck in the neutral zone. LUNCH!

We waited two hours for reunion. Andrei is always in great demand.
And as a member of theater group he instantly gets used to the role,
he actively squinting on the photos with the Mongols.





At the meeting in the restaurant with the French, he flashed his jersey



Having eaten the game and Mongolian Calvados we decided to spend the night on the lake.
According to our Cosmonavigator it was not far away.

Even thunderstorm could not shake our confidence in the beach holiday.



Abbott shows how hard lightning can strike.



Along the road we lost Pate. No matter that Mongolia was seemingly flat as ussual.
It was beginning to dusk when we found him and rushed to the beach.



On the far edge of the lake epic battle between two atmospheric fronts was unfolding.

Pate smokes rolled cigarette with excitement. Amir adjusts his camera.
Grom shoots documentary footage of the landing on the cherished planet.
Abbott was deeply moved by the flood of impressions and can not hold back his tears of joy.
Cormorants fly to the northeast.



Watching stormy whirlwind we remembered how lightning hurts male libido and installed a lightning rod.



Heavy weekdays of space travelers in Mongolia:
beer, shrimp, horse sausage, beach, surf and no one around for hundred miles.



Gentle morning rays illuminated the surrounding reality.



Long shadows from the starships intertwined with the shadows of recreational marching capsules.
Peace, tranquility and complete silence reigned over the nature after the evening storms.
The soft snuffling of oxygen machines in the camp and gentle surf on the bank built its tune.







Suddenly the sunlight faded, the sky was covered with camouflage splashes of prominences.

That was flock of space patrol cormorants which arrived at the morning and to get the flight mission.



Task is simple: examine the alleged track and prepare the site for the next night.

Clear? Roger! Go!



KTM morning procedures: dismantle, assemble, tin, solder.



For breakfast, we caught Mongolian shrimp in Mongolian sea.
The taste is unforgettable.



Overall opinion in the space garrison: It is good that KTM never brakes down!



How to determine the right way. Follow the main traffic flow!





We see lights of the big city ahead. Refueling, skyscrapers, shopping malls, boutiques.







In the central square of the spaceport there was fraternization of humanoids and cosmonauts!

My home is your home, my capsule is your capsule. Humanoid "GREGORY" was special.

Gregory completely loaded and convinced us that earthlings can handle leather intergalactic cyber missile.
For a test drive we called Space Marine.







Humanoids actively investigated terrestrial vehicles and took pictures.



Being very moved from such a hot reception Space Marine decided to show elements
of terrestrial aerobatics right in the boutiques gallery.
He made several passes along the boulevard under a standing ovation and applause.
Humanoids were delighted.





We filled full tanks, nibbled alien ice cream, said goodbye and departed in deep space.

Awesome adventure great videos.
Me and my wife have watch all.

Couple on questions....
Didn't see any tire repair or wheel repair...was this luck or you just didn't film the repairs?

And the encounter with the people and the big truck was heated...could you explain what happened?

Thanks for a adventure great post....

Fred
