Road Trip to Hell

Well, those of you that are creating a fuss about our infrequent postings as of are right. We have been off the job. Just a few notes of news as to the why;
  • We did receive confirmation that our first attorney took our 5k and skipped town on us
  • For some crazy reason that affected my normal "cop mode" stress free life and my BP spiked 190/174, apparently that is something bad
  • We scrambled a bit to borrow 4k to apply for our Visas, since we gave our attorney a free trip
I know...sounds like I am making a big deal out of nothing and for that I am sorry.

NOW for the good news, 3 days after applying for our Visas last week, they were approved and we picked them up this AM and the most important step in the process is finished! Thanks for standing alongside us as we have taken a road trip to hell and back.
Ikhametler Aldik!

Three steps remain;

  • Re-register the jeep in our name-1200USD
  • Get my Turkish driver's license-700USD
  • Apply for our carnet de passage, the permit to drive the jeep overland and across borders and hopefully into Iran, Tajikistan and onto China-200USD 

So if all goes as planned we hope to have all this finished within the next two weeks. Soon as my Valium cocktail kicks in I will bring you up to speed on Ramazan in Turkiye and the food fest that has descended. Thanks for being so patient as we have juggled the plates in our crazy little circus:)
