The grease monkey on our back

Dave and I finally roll up our sleeves and dive into the deep end of wrenching/screwing/lifting/ripping/stripping/drilling/flushing/etc.


It's a stick up!

Now that Dave’s back in London, we can start work on the car. Task one: stickers.

...and don’t fret. We have more stickers coming, custom ones too.


Route master

Our route map:

Due to recent political activities in Iran, we have thought of a plan B route (if need be). Instead of exiting eastern Turkey near the town of Van, we could hug the Black Sea a little longer and go north into Georgia - as the Turkey/Armenia border will be a little slow to traverse - then make it to Azerbaijan. From the port town of Baku we would jump onto the ‘ferry of death’ over the Caspian Sea to Turkmenbashi, Turkmenistan.

But yes, our initial route is still favoured. Dave and I are more excited about seeing Iran over maybe only Mongolia, think of the relief/exhilaration of seeing a yurt!
