"We left Ulaan Baatar at midnight for a straight 48 hour (non-stop) run to the Russian border. The car is on a flat bed and Brant and I are in a Toyota Land Rover.....all the way on dirt tracks! If everything works out, we'll be at the border on the morning of June 7 when our visas are good."

"The Russian Embassy attempt to obtain an early entry into Russia failed this afternoon. They were stubborn and would not accommodate me for a two day early entrance."
"We are getting out of here tonight, one way or the other, and heading to the Russian border in anticipation of a June 7 crossing."
"All I can say is that 4 days in Ulaan Baatar is like spending two weeks in Tijuana."
"A detail of note: the border at Ulan Ude is 1,700km away, and the truck (see photo) has two drivers driving 24-hours a day."- Stanley Gold
