60 CLICKS out and a great early morning ride into the city ,, straight to the GEORGE HOTEL were the girls just said welcome back MR ZEBB “god you smell and fixed us up with a room (and a great shower ) ,The staff at the George are the best in the world , seams to be some football do on , we are the only Brits bar one Gordie ,so are the local celeb`s


We were told of a local bar that was styled on a underground resistance bunker , you just knock on the door a hatch opens and you have to say the password ,,, if you got it right the armed guard opens up gives you a shot of the local hooch and your in , IT`S REALLY COOOOL

Fantastic place just watch out for traffic police ,, FIRST NIGHT was the noisest wild camp i have ever stayed in (next to a coal mine ) and the coal crushing machine so up early and a 700 click ride to a motel which was a knocking shop, but less noise than a coal mine ,,

next day 600 clicks in and down a track to a lake camp , it looked ok at first every one friendly ,,just as Rob said the words THIS LOOKS QUIET ENOUGH everyone came out of the bushes, it rapidly turned into chaos The total lack of woman got me thinking what have we got into here the head man said dont worry i am security ???? lifts his t shirt and pats his gun holster !!!! it was empty“` more chaos as they all hunted for the lost gun (meanwhile the pissed up local village idiot was trying to shoot off his own toes) turned out to be a Ukrainian drinking den (dualing banjoes were running in our heads as we got the fuck out of Dodge)!! ended up in the usual car park

We never got any pulles from the police , they seam to have all got new cars and uniforms (i think me and Henry bought them with all the money they reamed out of us last year )

Leaving Moscow was the usual 3 ring circus , maddness ,, but i loved it , the road was long and hot and we expected it to last 2 days, after many near misses with usual kamaz trucks we eventualy set up camp in a disused car park which seams to be the theme for this trip
