Just to let you know we are bother safe
So far we have wild camp 4 nights, but tonight it's a hotel as I need a shower and wi fi
Had a bit of trouble one night, the local people did not like the idea we were sleeping just off the track so we just more on and found a better place
You like this got pull over by the local army just to check passports and check the inside the vehicle, they saw the drone and went into one, they try to keep it, but another guy from post turn up and we told him we were only using it in the mountains, well in the end they let me have it back and they were all smiles again and they let us go. Soon found why there was a check point on the highway a few miles down the road there was a army base
So far done just over 1000 miles and only broken the same wing mirror twice
Guess what the next trip is next year I hope we are going to Chernobyl and if we have time pop into Belarus
Sorry no pics the files are way to big for this site and I am not going to downsize them,
There is no on here these days so not worth the time
