Now we are back home, clothes are washed and now…?!
Let`s think about some realy nice days in Russia with new friends, watch the photos and videos…
All beginns on holidays after Ice Butt at Sakke`s place. I really want to go to Kola-Tour with the Dusty Wobbls. I made some enduro training with more or less success. I bought the KTM and went on.
Anja and me started our tour to Finland, Helsinki. (Michael, Anja`s friend must stay at home, because of some trouble with his working place.) At Sakke`s place we met Aki, Jonko and Jaska had a nice evening with sauna and prepared the service-car.
Friday, 2.9.2011 we packed the car and trailer, o.k. take other trailer from Ali and pack again. We drive to Wild Brown Bear station, Jonko and Jaska are there, Ari is coming by bike, Aki and Ali are coming with Creeper. We eat, have some nice sauna, beer, but where is Mika? BMW has stopped in the middle of nowhere, out of gas… fuel gauge was out of order. His wife jumped in the car and bring fuel, that he was during night time at WBBS.
Saturday, 3.9.2011 I waked up too early, 5:00h, nervous?! breakfast at 8:00h, 9:30h we left WBBS. At finish boarder, no problem…russian boarder 4 times control and first problem: papers of Ali`s trailer are wrong, boarder control don`t accept, they drive back and packed all on the car. We tryed to change € for rubels in the next town. Big sand road with 80-120km/h, are they crazy? 😉 Jonko found first fireplace in the middle of the road with his burning back-pack, exhaust was too hot!
Then realy first nice fireplace with hot coffee and ”ugly sausages” 😉 Great! Anja and I ride to small town and meet service-car-team with new problem: rear wheel bearing was not in order, oil came out! Others came and we build up camp in yard of Mrs. Raisa, nice Karelian woman in Vuokkiniemi. Next problem: Aris back suspension is out of oil and very bad working, but he Jonko and Mika want to continue the tour! They pack their bikes for camping in the wood’s. Aki, Sakke and Jaska tried to repair the bearing.
Ali made the kitchen-Queen with cooking noodels and?! Anja and I tried to help… Nice sauna with birch-Vasta and beer. Anja, Ali, Aki and I searched the ”nightclub” of the town, Russians fooled us…, nice beer in tent. Tent-oven works, great! Good night.
Distance today 102 km by nice 15-17°C sunny weather.
Next days I will write more…
