Yep that's the spot:
After hearing about my troubles with trees across the road on the Road of Bones with Sherri Jo back in 2010, Prutser had an idea he wanted to try ... a pocket chain link saw.
It worked !
I went down to the river to refill my water bottles and Beamster said to me ... What are you doing? You arent going to drink that are you? Its wild? Its not clean.
I tried to explain that this wild water is a clean as it gets. Crystal clear fast flowing mountain water. Better than any tap water or bottled water.
She still wouldnt drink it
Oh those city folk !
Our usual easy to make, easy to clean meal of instant noodle meal deal boxes - just add water meals - did the trick for Terry and I ... Prutser is more of a camping aficionado, so cooked up a more complex meal with Beamster.
Washed down with beers (there is always room in the top of the roll bag for a few beers) which we had chilling in the cold river for 20 minutes while we built the fire
I cant even remember what shots Terry and I were doing here ... I think Beamster found a half full vodka bottle in her panniers that had been given to us in Astana. It looks from this pic like we were doing shots washed down with apple juice (Polish style) ... Good way to finish the night.
