Two of us are leaving Newcastle at the end of April to go via Turkey, the stans, mongolia, to Vlad, and then either across USA or down to TDF, subject to finances. At least, that's the general idea: I can't really justify calling it a "plan", more a line on a map and lots of excited conversations down the pub. Definitely going, but still lots of detail to work out. Looking for bikes at the moment, XT600 seems to be the top contender.
Time wise looks like we might coincide. Planning wise I think once we really get started we're going to be pestering anyone who'll listen for information and advice, so comparing notes sounds great!
Where are you from, what bike are you taking? Just you?
