I once had a hybred mix of 5/8's Tundra wolf and 3/8 German Shepard. How that was figured ?????????? LOL. Very good animal till it was poisoned at one year old. Right at a 100 pounds and could look you in the eye over a 5 foot fence. Great dog with the kids. Never had to worry about people harrasing them in the back yard and all the kids in the hood love playing with him. Now, not legal to have one.

Walter, between you and Big Dogs ideas of the New Husky Terra, got me fixing to see about getting one. Sigh! Would be perfect for me since I'm a KLR type guy. ;-)

At this point - all the action was with Prutser amd co about 50 miles away from me
Same reason I'm schtum. The action was with these guys.

Land

I was wondering who own`s all this land? Do people have access to Government owned land or is it private and you just take your chance?

Just back from a week in Tennessee and catching up on the RR.... you all are keeping me laughing my butt off fur suuure!
Yea I tooo have suffered/suffer the rubbery legged effect of Beaver Fever... quite warm and fuzzy, with a permagrin added in.

Prutser thanx for the EXCELLENT photographic and wrenching work! Beemster and Terry thanx for the Stoic, yet smiling nature through it all, a pleasure to look into your faces and read your energy. Rod you know... thanx for keeping me rolling around on the floor with sore cheeks and ribs! Walter thanx for putting it all together, opening your dream to others and bringing in team mates like this to enrichen the whole adventure...

I believe the 5 of you make an excellent team!

Private or somehow restricted territories are very rare in Russia. In general it`s just everything that has a fence - military bases, plants and factories, private hotels and campings, or may be a villa of some rich person (usually not far from big towns). Restricted, but without fences - territories near state border and some natural reserves. In other cases you are absolutely free to choose the way to ride and the place to camp.

So... WELCOME!

But you have better roads, better food, better touristic service. In Russia everything is wild.

When the hunters left we stayed a little bit longer to enjoy the amazing scenery.



We didn’t want to arrive in Aktash too late and we didn’t knew what was lying ahead of us so we dicided to push on.





After a rocky forest track the trail turned into an even rockier steep downhill section going into the valley. Coming round the last bend I could see our next challenge. The first thing that came into my mind was that we had to go back. But Prutsers face told me otherwise.

Tee Bee and Prutser took the boxer across first.



And then across a second smaller crossing.



But now we had to take the other two bikes across as well.

That looks pretty scary. I would have taken all the gear off the bike and also tied a rope to it, just so I could pull it out of the water again. On second thought, I would have carried the bike over in pieces :-).
