Today I will writing about my preparation for my Altai trip.
In the first, I planned my trip. There were contain next big parts:
1) I was going to ride to Altai and come back home by my motorcycle. All the way was about 4 thousand five hundred kilometers. Therefore, I had to prepare my motorcycle for this long way. I had to change oil, replace old brake pads and make other service that my bike was ready for this way. May be I should had planned itinerary and had written stops and fuel stations on my map. But I prefer go to trips without a detailed plan with stops, I prefer to stop where I like or if I’m tired. There are many fuel stations and motels in Russian so chance to stay without fuel or accommodation for sleeping is very small.
2) After I would had come to Altai, I planned to be riding a horse and sleeping in mountains for a week. I had to buy a tent and a sleep bag for sleeping and other equipment for camping. I had to look out a company that can provided a service by rent a horse and a guide for this. In ideal way I wanted to go to mountain as part of group that no stay alone.
3) After that, I found a company for my horse’s trip and they suggested me a rafting on a Fast River after I come back from mountain. I thought that it sounds like a very good idea. The river calls “Katun”. This suggestion added additional things in the shopping list). The duration of rafting was for four days.
4) After all that I was going to ride my motorcycle all over Altay for a week and after that come back home.
After I make this plan, I began to do it. I prepared my motorcycle, bought all necessary things, packed them. My girlfriend decided to go in this trip with me. This her decision multiplied most things by two)
There is very strict place for things in the motorcycle so packaging all necessary thing looked like a high level Tetris game. But we did it)
In the next time, I will telling about the first part of our trip. I will telling about my way from Ekateri
