Hi Dennis, sounds like you're having a great time, albeit exhausting with all those Russian women (!), long rides, rafting, being arrested etc! Sounds like the people are pretty hospitable too which is great for you and gives you even more of an insight. We shall look forward to seeing you in the future for a verbal account.... we're just back from a few days in Istanbul, terrific place. Off to Tanzania and Zanzibar mid Aug. with Douglas for two weeks - looking forward to it. Lots love J & Pxxx
Love the photos and keep up the story telling.
Me Again. Bloody hell, your Blog and photos are like a good book, couldn't stop reading. Mongolia looks amazing!
Dennis, you're amazing. Well done and travel well for the rest. Some classic pics and captions. You're looking healthy despite the rigors of your travels. Looking fwd to a beer and hearing your stories to infill your Blog! Cheers Mate. Frank
Good to see all is going well. Rolling with the punches helps a lot. Enjoying the updates, keep 'em coming!
Dos vidanya Dennis. Glad to read you were able to leave the Russian's alone (women) and saved your gear from the load music mate. Not sure about the Vodka, is it a reputable brand. Are you sick of plov yet? Wait till you get to the "---stan" countries mate.
You may remember me from some earlier communication we had (we are doing a similar trip (minus the Stans) I have enjoyed reading your blog and hopefully will catch up with you when you get home. You sound like you are having a ball.
Phil, spares have not been a problem cos I haven't needed any....yet! Fuel is slightly cheaper in Russia ($1/L 95 RON) and there is no problem getting fuel anywhere in Russia or Mongolia. Peugeots in Russia are definitely restricted to post 206. Only modern I am afraid. Same goes for the rest of Nthn Europe these days. Will send a story to you for Peter C sometime soon.
I love looking through your ozdog adventure site mate, keep going, feel like I'm there. I think it takes more time for us to navigate the site than for you to actualy do the trip. Glad everything is alright. You must have a few tools and spares to be carrying out some of the services to the muel. How do fitt everthing on the bike. Do you think I could do it on my scooters, how difficult has it been obtaining fuel and is it expensive? Keep enjoying the trip mate and please keep posting your progress. More pictures of ancient Russian Peugeots please, of vehicles. I suppose you have millions more pictures than published. Look forward to ths slide show when you return.
Anne I knew you did the right thing when you acquired the R100R. I have a new rotor with me just in case. Its a known failure item in time. Diode board, coil and ignition barrel will happen one day also I am told. But don't get too worried, it won't all happen at once.
Just keep the ol girl on the road
Hi Dennis - Lindy sent through your blog address, so i've just spent the last hour attempting to follow you along your travels. Sounds like all is going well, so pleased you're having a great time - i can't believe it's half way over already. Saw your 'home' - can you bring that back for my bike? lol! Had to get a new rotor and got that shocky bush fitted at the same time, so my girl is humming at the moment. Pleased that your homework before you left has paid off. Pretty cool here by our standards at least. Caught up with Lindy at the w/e. Will send the contact on to Ben. Enjoy yourself and stay safe.
Hi Dennis. Been watching your travels with interest. The Monkey Boys are heading off this weekend for our Central Australian trip. We'll have a beer for you at our first stop- the Birdsville Pub. We bought KLR 650s. We fully set them up with all the accessories and reckon they'll be perfect for the job. It'll be cool out there but nothing like where you are. Travel safely. Ian Gillett
