Hi Doosey,

I generally do the trip most years! Got your PM but can not reply, if you send me your mail address I will send a message back.
Keep me posted and the dates might tie in with work etc.
Cheers,
Mike

FWIW, have a look at the Kazakhstan section of my website - might give you some ideas.

overlandcruiser.net

But my problem was that I was essentially flying blind in Kaz. I thought my Central Asia guidebook covered Kaz and only found out that it didn't on the same day I was due to cross from Omsk. I well remember my frantic chase around all the bookshops in Omsk, trying to find an English-language guidebook for Kaz! Am quite sure I could have seen a lot more of Kaz.
