Our passports are back in our possession after doing some preliminary travels of their own to Washington DC (for the Kazakhstan visa) and San Francisco (for the Russian visa). Kyrgyzstan and Mongolia do not require US citizens to obtain visas prior to arrival.
Last minute preparations continue; all we have to do is sort through all of our stuff and move from a nice large house into a small storage unit and two bicycle trailers. In some ways, it feels like the easy part will be cycling for four months. After we leave North America, we no longer have to decide how many pairs of socks to bring, we just have to wear them while meeting great people and traveling through incredible terrain.

Our next post will probably be from Kyrgyzstan.
