Expedition Defender X: Irkutsk

3 hours and 36 min left.
Until we reach Irkutsk. A stones throw away from Lake Baikal. A long wished dream of mine since I was a teenager. I dreamt about doing the Transsiberian Railway. It never happened. But this is better!
People write and ask, why are we in such a rush?
The honest answer is that we all have many obligations, commitments and little time. And we need to do the crossing of the Bering Strait the first week of August. The one and only chance.
Obviously we are all tired, but still enjoying what we do very much. But being a passanger is way easier than driving. Amazing Jeff and Steve!
The whole team is on its top.
Tomorrow a bit of a break! Before three 15 hours days to Yakutsk!
That is the plan for now.
