the American team blew out the oil sump on their Fiesta and are limping to the next town. Perthtoyurt's vehicle computer went into emergency mode but turned out to be a stone in the air intake valve. Corrugated roads are treacherous, rocks, ruts, dust and sand. be lucky to do 100 miles today. Brutally hot and dry as dirt. Absolutely nothing fun about today... Just stopped again, Perthoyurt's Scoda is leaking coolant.... spent an hour yanking out the radiator and patching a couple of holes. Camping off the road for the night while the glue sets. Texas2steppe (the americans) just joined us crawling along in the dark after getting their oil pan repaired in the last town. so we're a 3 car Convoy for early start tomorrow. Still over 1000 km to UB. 290 km to Altay before the roads improve.
