We found a great spot to camp last night. I took a road off the main route which was a signposted dead end after 7kms. A track running off that into the woods looked promising, but people had been there before and it was visible from the road. The track turned up a steep hill that I thought was worth exploring, so I fired on up for a look.
Steep tracks uphill are always interesting, as there’s no backing down once you start! You’re committed to getting to the top, whatever is up there. In this case it was a clearing on a mound, invisible from the road but a great spot to set up the hammock. Room for Chip’s tent meant it was perfect.
The guys got the BMWs up no problem and we setup for the night. There must be a local air base as a pair of MIGs were cruising around for a long time. I couldn’t say which ones they were as I’m not so well up on Russian military jets. Sadly they weren’t for sale and I didn’t get to have a go in one. Can you see a theme here?
