    It was indeed! The driver's side was perfectly firm. The truck dug that hole in less than 30 seconds with both diffs locked and still couldn't climb out.

    Darn! We won't have enough time before winter comes to see the Ukaraine. But we'll see about next summer. Planning on being in Turkey in a couple of years after driving the east and west coasts of Africa. Happy to look you up then!

    Finland We crossed from Norway to FInland with no fanfare whatsoever. The Norwegian border patrol stood ready to examine incoming traffic but the Finnish side was deserted. And we were lucky with our timing. We dropped right into a Finnish fall with full colors. Our Finland route, 11 days...

    I wish! We tried getting a tourist visa from Russia this fall but they had stopped issuing them. We had fun in the Netherlands this summer

    Norway! Land of fjords, waterfalls, mountains, and endless tunnels, Norway had a spectacular surprise around every hairpin turn of the road. We managed to repeatedly hike ourselves into full body exhaustion (really not 30-somethings anymore), drive most of the most challenging scenic auto...

    We were impressed with Sweden and its endless rolling forested hills. The national parks that we made it to were beautiful. Our first night - camped and went for a coastal walk outside of Falsterbo Harald Bluetooth - who knew (we didn’t), modern Bluetooth named after a Danish king with a...

    I'm sure someone will pop up and buy it, it's a good setup! Earlier this month at a TASS visa assistance center they told us that Russia wasn't issuing tourist visas. Do you have another avenue for getting in, correct?

    Thanks! We’ve been here about 70 days, it’s been great. Have any luck on selling the Tacoma and the four wheel camper?

    Our first stop in Denmark was Ribe, the oldest town in Scandavia. Hard to wrap our heads around the date it was founded - 854. While in the US we relied heavily on the iOverlander app but in Denmark we started relying heavily on Park4Night instead. It is a free app similar to iOverlander...

    After Belgium we moved next-door into the Netherlands. Couldn’t resist taking a photo of the truck in the windmill-rich area of Kinderdijk. With wild camping being once again mostly illegal, we booked campgrounds online in Netherlands as well. They were still running around $20 a night...
