Re: Favorable temperature for camping and dog

Yes that is what I meant with giving the dog some shade. I think that is your most important task when the temperature goes to 40 degrees or higher.
And if you spray it's fur a couple of times I think the dog will cool down a bit as well (also due to evaparation effect)

Re: Favorable temperature for camping and dog

Well, it is easy to mess up a temperature reading in many ways, but it does not surprise me to see many events of above 40 degrees going to 45 degrees and possibly over. I once went for holiday in May in France and we had 40 degrees and possibly more, even new cars were breaking down. What it means ...

Re: Favorable temperature for camping and dog

The part in Uzbekistan is tricky. We definitely had 40 degrees, even though we were only slightly later there than your planning, and it doesn't cool down in the night. When you leave Kyrgystan into Kazakhstan, that part of Kazakhstan can get pretty hot too. You won't get -20 in October (probably) b...

Re: Leaving a car behind in Armenia or Georgia for good.

Yeah I know that story. That is not how I would like to travel. But then also stuff like the Mongol Rally can't leave their cars in Mongol anymore, because they don't want these old wrecks. So they end the Mongol Rally in Russia now, and put them back on the train to Europe. I don't know Georgia and...

Re: Leaving a car behind in Armenia or Georgia for good.

Well, how high is the import tax for those countries? What you can do is buy a car that is liked over there, so that they can use it. There are many old cars over there because of the export from EU. You can be part of that trade. Rather than bringing them a shitty car nobody wants to have. And it d...

Re: Tajikistan COVID charity appeals

This is hard, in that I agree with bwv812, why people in tourist industry? There are much poorer people. The post of Christian77 makes sense to me. Because I am sceptical. After hearing in Pakistan that there were never so much new cars after the huge floods in the country :( (which affected mostly ...

Re: Meaning of this symbol?

Oh yeah, I remember now, it was also the language. Unfortunately we did not spend enough time in Kyrgystan to my liking.
Ah well, a good reason to come back to Central Asia :)

Re: Meaning of this symbol?

Interesting discussion! While in Central Asia, I also learned that kyrgys are also in northern Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and western Mongolia (and probably more like Uzbekistan and China) It is probably one of those things where people were just living there already, and then somebody started to paint ...

Re: Sprinter vs Ducato vs Pickup Camper - Crossing Asia

But what kind of van do you have now? And how long you think the trip will take? If you are going to do it all in rather short term, let's say 3 months for the whole trip, then please skip the whole 4x4 stuff, because you're not going to use it at all. There are just downsides to it. More stuff that...

Re: Sprinter vs Ducato vs Pickup Camper - Crossing Asia

Thanks for the feedback. I think it will be quite difficult to find either a van or a pickup with a petrol engine in the UK, where I live. On top of that, I also read that RHD vehicles cannot go into Uzbekistan, so I may have to find it in mainland Europe. I like the challenge of converting my own ...
