    after I originally said it wasn't . Think I was as confused as the Garmin

    It's strange because I cant remember much after Kasteelweg. I recollect Maastricht and Francochamps and cops hiding in bushes and thats it... I think I need a bigger SD card in my head

    The Ark of Bukhara ... These are in inner walls to the citadel / palace complex thingy in the middle of the old town ... 5th - 7th century I believe.

    Amazing trip but I’m not sure you really know about these things Cole, for example I can't see the support trucks and why haven’t you been having tantrums and sulks whinging about how hard it is?

    …you’ve still a lot to learn if you want to do this properly!

    Excellent thread keep the updates coming and I want to be on this road

    OK ... easiest option is to find the pic on the blog (www.sibirskyextreme.com), click on it. You will get a larger version .. .double size.

    if you need larger than that, PM me your desktop pixel size and i will custom cut one for you. Cant give out the full scale pics at this point, but should be able to get you a desktop size version given some time. (still on the road). Try the blog first.

    O contraire ... Supply trucks, make-up vans etc were sent on up ahead with the graders, to make sure the road was smooth enough for us.

    We have a mobile jacuzzi van too complete with swedish masseuses which we meet up with each evening. It has a bar attached so we can have cocktails in the jacuzzi while getting our daily massages, while in the tub, sipping mohitos.

    I know we are a bit naive, but thanks to useful advice, we are improving our set-up.

    Its still pretty rough ... and I spend a lot of time on the sat-phone complaining to my agent (he is in a 4WD van 800 yards behind us the whole way).
