Hi there.
I'm interested in this information, please could you send address of the forwarder because it is impossible from here (france) to get any reliable information.
I'm used to travel with my 4x4 (4WD) in Africa, with my friends.
This time, I'm alone, and I plan to cross europe, Ukrain, Kazakhstan and other x'stan countries, then Mongolia and russia to Magadan... or to Anadyr. From there I want to go to Alaska.
I would be there (Magadan or Anadyr) 1st december 2008.

How can I ship my car from russia to Alaska? Is it possible? In December? Or any other suggestion!
Thank you for the answers.
Reynald

I remember, road is not used 1 and half year. I think it will be hard to drive on car. river in some places pick up the path. will need a shovel and a lot of power. :-)
This year it was dry. In August, we drove through the road without the help of trucks.
