    Oh my--30 km of sandy path. It's the little things like this that make our world an interesting one. At least it kept the marathon from being boring, eh? Thanks for your reply. Now I've returned to continue my journey with you. In spite of the trip being mainly in the countryside, that's what I have enjoyed the most. After awhile, all big cities look like big cities; but I enjoy seeing the countryside of the various countries. When my adorable late husband and I traveled throughout Europe by train, it was amazing how the countryside varied from one country to another. One of the greatest ways to travel throughout Europe is by train; and we so enjoyed meeting people from various countries on the train. It always made the 18-hour trips go by much faster.
    Luv ya!
    Sweet Caroline

      Yes, in foreign countries I also travel with pleasure by the train. In the train it is easy to get in contact with locals and people from various countries :-)

    What happened? You ran out of road? LOL! Or is this a shortcut?

      To find the right route, I used the GPS track of the organizer. The GPS track led me along this 30 km long sandy path to the control point in Totma.
      The organizer realized obviously before the start of the marathon, that the route leads over a sandy path. He changed the route and explained the change on the written route description.
      Look here:

      Unfortunately, my knowledge of the Russian language was not sufficient to read the route description properly :-|
      Before my next bicycle marathon in Russia I will improve my linguistic knowledge :-))
