Overwhelmed by this wonder of nature we start our engines. We endlessly ride our motorcycles over this
enormous white flat. The Cold pounds on my jacket, adrenaline flows and my heart beats in my throat. From
the great 'nothing' we reach a small village. Fishermen have made waterholes in the ICE. Some fish are
laying on the ICE, overcome by the cold. "Where have you come from? How is the ICE?" For months already
the villagers have been waiting for the good news that the ICE road is open.
Are shivers running down your spine already? Here's our advise: Dress up in an extra warm pullover, put on
a winter hat and enjoy the adventure on the many pages of our wesite.
-42 degrees greetings,
Rob en Dafne de Jong

| 15/02/2004 - Beautiful Baikal
It's not hard to feel the lumb in my throat again which were there when we left Lake Baikal. We wanted to
have driven all the way over the ICE so badly, to Listvianka and Irkutsk. We had asked different fishermen
again and again about the ICE in the South and every single one of them had raised his voice: "Don't go!
It's very dangerous."
