First of all thank you to everyone for all your messages of support.Unfortunately I don’t have time to reply individually but they mean a lot to us. We left this very nice city early Sunday morning. Quite the send off with crowds cheering us along the way. The day started warm and sunny but later in the day we were hit with torrential rain. Of course this is always the point when the windscreen wipers decide to quit and I now know t he real meaning of multi tasking. The rain was pouring in through the roof and so I was manually working the wipers, cleaning the inside of the screen to prevent fogging, finding the waypoint, zeroing the tripometer and at the same time yelling directions to Lloyd to turn right or left !!
The landscape here in Siberia is very similar to Alberta and the Prairies. Vast fields and also muskeg and trees. We covered 700 Kms. to arrive in Omsk last night and a further 700 Kms today. The car is going well and seems to be popular with the other crews. This is the first time that a Nash has competed and so far she has done us proud. We are both tired with the long distances but doing well. More tomorrow.
