Last year Mihai and his family took their Gear Up on an epic 4 month European tour. This summer he’s back on the road exploring Central Asia.
Mihai has perfected his Gear Up for long haul touring. This year they’re starting their journey in Uzbekistan.
“Got to Muynak, on the banks of the former Aral Sea. Good to be back, the wrecked ships are just were I left them, although the water seems to be even further away.”
Mihai has traveled over 50,000km (31,068 mi) on his Gear Up since 2015.
Road trip essentials 🙂
Lunch break in Kattakurgan Uzbekistan.
100 kms away from Beyneu, Kazakhstan.
“Road from Aqtau to Beyneu. The Ural’s fuel canister was worth its weight in gold.”
Camping in Kazakhstan.
The road from Beyneu to the Uzbekistan border.
There is no gas in Uzbekistan. No, really, nothing. Petrol stations are all closed. In 1200km we could only find one that was working. In the rest of the cases it’s a real challenge. You stop at some crowded place, ask for “benzin” and wait for someone to show up, that knows someone, calls him, checks if the guy has any, then try to understand the directions he’s giving you.
What type of petrol we put in, what octane, how clean… I have no idea, but that’s part of the adventure.
