its about 12000km, asphalt all the way.

So it'll take as long as you want it to take. If you want to do 1000km a day or you want to do 100 km a day ... its your call.

LandCruiser wont be an issue but to be honest, a bog stock Ford Ka or Fiat Seicento would suffice and use 60 - 70% less fuel.

You could leave in mid April ... depending how fast you want to go. It can be anything from 2 weeks to 3 months depending how slow you want to go.

Coxy

Something tells me you are a relative of Justin Staal - I think when i was discussing my last escapade to him he mentioned your trips and directed me to your site... If I've got that wrong - ignore my ramblings !!

But I've done a bit of research about London to East Coast of Russia, and how to get back...

Ping me a pm if you feel like it with a phone number and we can have a chat at some point...
