Altay road trip, day one

Last year I suggested to my friends to have one week journey in Mount Altay.To be honest, I didn’t believe we could organise everything and have this small road trip. Surprisingly, my friends have approved one week vacation for themselves, have bouhgt everything needed and, what is more important, have organised and prepared a car for a long trip. All we needed to do was to fly back in Siberia by this time and finish all the other activities we had by this time. I’ll try to keep writing our travel notes on everyday basis, to avoid postponing doing this for a long time. However, I’m not sure if I can publish them everyday since the internet and GSM network are not available everywhere in the mountains. One thing I’m sure – this time it gonna be completely different Mount Altay.

AA roadside service and breakdown assistance

We decided to go for a strawberry farm on our first weekend after we arrived back in New Zealand after having two month trip in Russia. I don’t know why, but I couldn’t start my car for some reason that morning. May be it happened because Forester became 5 years old, or may be it happened because the car wasn’t driving for two monthes in raw, I don’t know. In theory, I could remove the battery for the period we left overseas so it should extend life expectancy of the battery but unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to do that (as usual).
