Camping at the Vitim bridge

Left the hotel this morning for fuel which was 12 miles in the wrong direction (East) but still filled up, then as we were about to pass the hotel again we noticed a sign which said benzine 650 metres nightmare! The sign only faced one way and we had not noticed it on the way in last night.

A mixture of deep rutted sand, boulders, and rocky pot-holey road to cover today and both a bit worse for wear after wetting Bogdan’s baby’s head last night. Oh and more wooden bridges and river crossings 🙂

We rode on for 8 hours or so until we reached the east bank of the Vitim river and the bridge, there’s a small track to the right that leads down to the river bank by the underside of the bridge. What a fantastic place to camp for the night, this was the second objective almost complete on our journey ( the first was the old summer road ).
