Back with a monster blog by Matt Ireland. Yes him of Transam Trucking fame, living the rock n roll life of concert trucking. Matt and myself have been beaten by technology, so to see the photos you’ll have to hit the link at the bottom, but in the mean time you’ve got to watch Matt’s video’s of one of his mammoth trips across Russia in his trusty DAF. Over to a few words from the man himself:
So this is a video diary I have prepared and also photos, both trucks and non trucks. I’ll start with the video links as they sort of explain where and what. They are all quite long (except part 3). I’ll admit I’m no Luke Vernon, I’m not very good at them.
Once we got to the border this was the route; Kazan, Samara, Chelyabinsk, Ekaterinburg, then back via the same way…
However, from Kazan to Samara, the route we actually went on was like this. the “direct road” was pretty much un-passable apparently so we went round!
All the photos of the trucks I took are at this link: HERE
I hope you enjoy!
