Russia, Road Of Bones 2010.

Hello All,
Planning a trip starting 1st of May 2010, over Denmark – Sweden – Finland – St.Peterburg – Moscow – Kazakhstan – Mongolia – Russia with Yakutsk to Magadan also known as the Road Of Bones.
I have been 4X4íng for a long time, and have a fully set up expedition truck, a Land Rover 110 300Tdi. If anyone is planning something similar, maybe we can share some info, at this stage I don’t really know much about the visa regulations. I do not have a tight time schedule, and like to just see what the road will bring. I’m especially interested in driving the Road Of Bones section together with another vehicle, to be able to winch each other out.

Might also have an opening for a navigator, if anyone is interested. I’m pretty easy going, likes to camp a lot and is hardly ever seen in public after 1700 without a in hand. Navigator will need own tent, and money for half of the fuel. Stamina and a cracking sense of humor a must……

Regards, Ib.

Hi - check out my page:
GPX Route Map Technical Details - GPS Jottings
which has maps of some of that route, taken on a Dragoman Overland truck. Might be useful to you.

Regards, Tim Makins, currently in Kovalam, south India.
