A few more preparations are coming in place. I have ordered my visa invitation for a 12 month business visa. Once the invitation comes, I’ll apply for a visa with it. I am signed up for a three week Russian language class in St Petersburg, so some more intense refresher on entering the country. I also am auditing a Russian language class at Front Range community college before I leave.
My bike is mostly ready to go, though the snow and cold has made riding more awkward. The plan is to leave Fort Collins and head down to Dallas at start of March. From there, I’ll do a mini-tour to ride to Texas Hell Week, ride some of that and then return back to fly from Dallas to Amsterdam at end of March.
