22 September 2010:  I have just received a call from Detlev to say that it is 12am (7am our time) and they have been sitting at the Russian border for the past 4 hours …. But this time there are 50 cars BEHIND them!

They seem to be upbeat, despite the late nights, and the worst part is now behind them.  Detlev said that the spring which broke, has been strapped and seems to be holding up, and the intention is to sort it out in Almaty on Saturday. 

Today, they are travelling to Blysk, and Detlev said it is a long trek of 565 km, but that the car should be okay.
