We usually drove 200-250 kilometers or more (one day was 400km!) per day there are few paved roads.

The Russian Tank Truck (as I like to call it) became our home.

It didn’t provide seat belts and the ride was bumpy.

Bracing myself helped give my arms quite the workout!

Along the way… there was beauty. I was even lucky enough to see this golden eagle in flight.
