While we are currently coordinating the logistics to assure our return in Far Eastern Russia this next month (early Aug 2011), I wanted to update you on the following matters:
I have added to the page ”Plans for Summer 2011 Route”, links on videos and written reports that have been sent to me by bicyclists, hitchhikers and motorcyclists who have been or planning to be on a similar route.
Hopefully, we might be able to meet some of these fellow travelers on the route!
On a separate note, here is a quick compilation of some of the Nexus Expedition interviews that have been published over the last few months.
