TR2012 - The ride (part 1)

Look at the Russian press report: https://manfred-tinebor.fotki.com/journals/tr2012/entry/wdkqdskgrsts/

In the first part, Manfred rode 950 km from the start Archangelsk at July 23th to a sleep rest place at a lake in Yaroslavl. During Manfred slept directly beside his couch, his couch, his luggage and his shoes were stolen! So in the early morning of July 26th, in less than 3 days, Manfred's marathon came to a preliminary end. :-(

    Wow, Sweetie--You could get "shaken baby syndrome" on this piece of highway! I can't imagine what riding on this type of highway for any length of time must do to your back. The Russian highways are surely brutal, that's for certain. Do you think you could sue the Russian Government for the above syndrome? LOL! It definitely takes "perserverance" to continue an already challenging marathon when you're faced with something like this. "You're a good man, Charlie Brown!"
    BTW, when I looked up the word, "perserverance", your picture was beside it.
    I just started my journey with you; and now I have to quit for a while. I've got an appointment with my Chiropodist shortly. My toe nails have gotten so long, I can climb trees with them. LOL! I'll get back as quickly as I can for your photos always get me energized.
    My heart was in my throat several photos ago--when you were behind the truck load of logs. I had two lovely cousins killed by such a truck when the chains holding the logs broke. They were both crushed to death. That happened when I was about eight years old. Even to this day, whenever I've gotten behind one of these logging trucks, I get a panic attack. I give them all the road they want; and I stay as far away from their back end as I can possibly get.
    Luv ya bunches!
    Sweet Caroline
