Planning a 5 week trip with lots of off-road in 2011
I'm thinking about a seriously long (offroad) trip more and more often. What I would really like is a 3 month journey east, to Kazakhstan of if 3 months are too short a trip around the Black Sea. But since 3 months takes a lot of planning I want to do a 5 week trip next year to taste the adventure.
The 5 week trip could go south-east to Turkey or south to Morocco or Algeria. It is possible to ship your bike to Gibraltar by truck. Or north, Sweden and Norway which is not too far with plenty of wilderness. As I'm writing this today (Jan 30, 2010) my preference would be Turkey as it takes you through some realy great countries, coming from western Europe.
It would be great if there are others with similar ideas, I would love to do this kind of adventure with a few similar minds! If you're interested or are planning something like this yourself, let me know, it would be great to start planning and dreaming. I know I am, staring at Google Maps/Earth at least twice a week!

Spam, HP2 owners and lurkers
HP2Enduro.com is occasionally being spammed, no longer by bots but real people. I have noticed a bunch of Russian texts that refer to financial deals of some sort. I have subsequently deleted all suspect users with a .ru email address. Plus a few more.
If I have deleted you and you were a real user I apologize. Please send me mail in that case so I won't do that again. I will tighten the rules a bit to avoid bad things from happening to the site.
From now on I will ask everybody registering to provide a real name plus (if you own a HP2) the vehicle registration info and to post a 'hello' message on the forum. If you have not provided a real name during the registration process I kindly ask you to do that now. Here's the link: http://www.hp2enduro.com/usersettings.php
To keep track of who is who, here are all HP2 owners. Quite a few but should be much more

I had a little accident on the 12th of September 2009 in Germany, just across the Dutch border, which resulted in some HP2 damage. But more importantly some serious inconvenient damage to my left wrist.
I broke it in 4 places, was hospitalized in Rheine and a titanium plate was inserted only 4 hours after the event.
The following photo's further on in the article will show you how a broken wrist heals over time!
Update November 30: I've started climbing again and guess what?On my second day (yesterday) I already did a 6a. For those of you that don't know what a 6a is: try it
