Plymouth, UK, to Mongolia, The Gobi Dessert and Lake Baikal
Hello all, I'm taking my sidecar outfit to Mongolia to see the statue of Chinggis Khaan near Ulaanbaatar.
I will be leaving at the beginning of May 2011 and expecting to arrive back in the UK after approx 3 months. If I can get the appropriate visa for Russia I will try to do the 'Stans' on the way back.
2 other places I want to visit are Lake Baikal and the Gobi Desert.
I appreciate there is another group heading off to Mongolia next year but they seem to have a tight schedule and I want to take time to savour the journey.
I will be 59 years old next year and I'm not taking a passenger on my outfit so I have lots of room for my kit.
To get a drift of who I am and how nuts I can be please visit this webpage
I expect my travelling speed to be approximately 40 - 50mph on normal tarmac roads.
That's all for now but if you are inclined to spend time on the road to Mongolia with a 59 year old 'teenager' then please get in touch.
