I'll look for one .Thanks.
I also have a MSR Wisperlite International for about 15 years and it is a great small stove. Taken a beating on many trips and the best thing it burns almost any fuel. Would highly recommend it for RTW trips
another great update and photos...thanks
I'm curious about that square of rocks behind and to the left of the bikes...did you guys do that or was it there when you arrived (and if so, got any idea what its purpose is)?
Exactly what I was going to ask. Mighty queer for Mongolia.
It looks like Archimedes has returned and is brushing up on his Euklides.
Walter, is there a mapping software which indicates unpaved roads vs paved ones? I know it was said here before about google earth, but I don't see this on google. Mapsource has brocken lines if it's unpaved but not always 100% accurate, and mapsource is not a convenient software to use.

aahhhh...now it all makes sense
Rod. You are one of the funniest feckers I've ever heard. Next time I'm in God's Country, I'm gonna track you down and pour a couple pints down your throat. You just need to get them to remove the friggin sparkler from the pump
no. not that I am aware of.
Maps traditionally dont indicate it. Maps are meant to indicate the importance of a particular road or track, not necessarily it surface.
Any map of Mongolia for example is covered with roads that appear like highways on the map - because they are the main trunk transport arteries across the country. In the real world they are often little more than wheel ruts that see a handful of vehicles a day. Like where I had to replace my wheel bearings. On one hand its potentially part of the Northern Route - one of two main tracks across the country. On the other hand I saw no vehicles apart from local motorbikes in the 7 daylight hours I was there.
What is Terry saying to Rod in this infamous foto - as they get driven across 2 inches of water?
I will suggest another one:
"You know what Rod, this is really the way to do it. I reckon there's a market for this. Terry's Adventure Tours. Take all the hassle out of Adventure Biking. Ride to Magadan in the comfort and safety of the back of our truck. I could even thrown in picnic hampers."
Oh no,i,m never ever gonna live this down....and its all rods fault,i fell for it hook line and sinker ,it was all a conspiracy to make me the laughing stock.
How about "Edelweiss can kiss my ass."
Wow! Finally got through the whole thread........ Awesome!
"Rod, you're a fool. This is possibly the most dangerous part of the trip and you've taken your helmet off. This gungho approach will be the undoing of you young man!"
"Dont laugh man, I am telling you i really saw a shark in here, it was like a monster!!! It was to risky."
"Ok ok, i know my Russian is not so good, i just thought they were asking if we are fine"
Hey Rod, this trip is over, i am tired of your bike failures..... I am not towing you any more!!!!
He was perhaps concerned that if he fell off the truck the weight of his helmet may flip him upside down in the raging torrent and drown him.
You shouldn't laugh, "A ferocious and even cannibalistic predator (cannibalism photo), taimen can grow more than six feet (up to two meters) in length and can weigh up to 200 pounds (91 kilograms).
Shark? It might only be an old trout.
"See Terry, NOW it's a real adventure. It's just like we saw it on the Charlie & Ewan DVD"
