Day #10 - Chjargas Lake to Olgiy (350km)

Posted on 21st June, 2016

22/6/2016 - NEWS - The Boys enter Russia and find some WIFI !!

##################################################

Always a good day when you wake at 5.30am and it's not raining . Last full day in Mongolia and yet more bad roads with cars littered along the way with broken sumps , failed shock absorbers or something more sinister. At least 3 cars haven't made camp - Mike H had issues all morning with a knocking noise following some works last night replacing shocks . 
Had some funky bits too as one pic will show !
Arrived at camp at 7.30 - our only issue is a badly dented sump gaurd courtesy of a boulder hiding in a sand dune ! It will be fine until Russian rest day but needs removing and sorting . 
Just in tent - early night  as we leave camp at 7.30 for the Russian border . Could be an interesting day ! It's -1c - this camping lark is overrated! 
Nice place to stop for a pee!
Oh dear we're stuck ! 
Stunning scenery around every corner
Arrived at camp site - it's freezing !
Nothing major - buckled wheel - welded sump and a new steering arm should do it - oh and the rear brakes are seized. Russia here we come - GY & Ricardo X X
