- Reached the 7000km mark 32km into todays stage. Had one liter of cold
sprite to celebrate, and jogged on to 7012km... :-)
It was real humid and a bit uncomfortable with the many mosquitos &
"sclepins" (big size mosquitos), that makes sure we keep moving ;-)
But as we hope it appears
from the gps-pictures, we ran into a change of nature with some new
inspiring scenery. Rolling hills, small steep climbs, big open valleys and
winding rivers carved into the brown and white soil.
- The stereotype of Siberia as a boring "same - same" every day: No ! Not
even close :-)
And allthough we will be repeating ourselves:
these huge areas of open nature is definately worth visiting; also despite
discomfort and expenses !
PS: our danish support group informs us that we tomorrow will have
finishpoint in an area without mobile signal (the Kemerova region).
Thus there can be anything between 5days and a couple of weeks till we are
able to bring the reports from those stages.
- untill then; happy training & enjoy the comforts of civilisation! :-)
