This summer route was 2700 km in Karelia. The first part included a relatively easy round trip by two Daihatsu Feroza jeeps carrying two parents and a three-year-old kid. The second part contained investigation of potential campsites for the future, and a hardest 5-day offroad fight by one driver in one car, including a major repair in a swamp distant from civilization. The total route was 4000 km, including arrival to Vytegra and return from Priozersk. Click here for POIs, maps etc.
