A new direction.

I suppose things aren't supposed to go as planned when you're having an adventure. Yesterday, Nick called from the Ukraine border. They were turned away due to a problem with their car title. The kicker is that they have our car title.

So, the new plan is to leave Budapest and catch up with them today near Poland and travel together to the Russian border through Latvia.

Since the Micra title is in Nick's name, we will need to cross the Russian border with them and hopefully not have anymore problems.

This could mean that we can't get to the other countries we planned to visit, but at least we'd be in Russia and have path to Mongolia.

We'll be leaving here within the hour and will update if we can when we stop for the night.

Cloud and comrades-

Well you knew it couldn't have gone as easily as planned. I hope you find the best alternative route and meet some cool people along the way.

The pictures so far look awesome and I cannot believe they found you on the back of a semi-truck and you got a picture of it. It's perfect.

Eternally jealous
