This tube-like tank is a shelter for a cashier and a ticket window. It stands at a gas (fuel) station in the area of Kyubeme on the Road of Bones (M56 Kolyma highway in Oymyakonsky District of Republic Sakha-Yakutia, Russia’s Siberia) right between settlements Khandyga/Teply Klyuch and Ust Nera.
The cashier’s tube appeared to become a lovely place for adventure travellers, especially 4wd drivers and motocyclists, to attach their expedition stickers.
Above and below photographs of Kyubeme fuel station were taken in the late Junuary 2013. Do you recognise any of your or your friends’ adventure travel stickers.
If you didn’t make it to that place and you’re already on the way, you need definitely to researve one exped sticker and attach it to the tank. Next winter I’ll come and take photo of newly-appeared badges.
Finally, I am publishing 127 photographs of the “Yakutsk – Oymyakon – Magadan. The World’s Coldest Road Trip” overland adventure travel that was done in cooperation with Nord Stream LLC on the Kolyma Road of Bones in winter 2013. That trip was announced previously here.
In the 2013 February winter trip, we had 8 travellers from different nations (1 Brazilian, 1 Catalonian, 1 French, 3 Germans, 1 Dutch, 1 American). They were great!
Announce proudly the start of gathering groups for the “Yakutsk – Oymyakon – Magadan. The World’s Coldest Road Trip” overland adventure tour in winter 2013-2014.
Let’s have the greatest fun experience on the road trip from Yakutsk to Magadan via Oymyakon in the world’s coldest place!
Together with the Nord Stream travel company, I am arranging Stalin’s Road of Bones trip on the route Yakutsk – Magadan, Russia’s Siberia, in Summer 2013.
7 days on Stalin’s Road of Bones (Kolyma Hwy). 2 nights in Ust Nera. Extra time in Yakutsk and Magadan.
You’ll learn more about history of the infamous Kolyma Road of Bones constructed by Stalin’s Gulag inmates. At the same time, you’ll discover the richness of the Sakha people’s culture and see the beauty of two Russian regions, Republic of Sakha-Yakutia and Magadan Oblast.
The idea remains simple. We take a van and drive all the way length of 2000 km.
Well, I spent the whole last month with my family in Yakutsk, Russia.
At the same time, I had been working on developing the description of travels across Yakutia, Russia’s Siberia, in the upcoming summer 2013. Check some of them on the website VisitYakutia.com, that I have created as well.
Most of summer expeditions, I’m going to arrange in cooperation with Nord Stream LLC.
See you a bit later. I am still picking images out of recent winter trips done to Mirny, the Okhotsk Sea, and Magadan.
Reindeer sledding expedition from Oymyakon in Yakutia, Siberia, Russia.
The next week I’m leaving for one-month reindeer sledding expedition with Explorer Mikael Strandberg from Oymyakon to the Okhotsk Sea. We will overcome as many as 600 km through the taiga, valleys, mountain ranges and the cold…
We’ll do a documentary for the U.S. company OutWildTv.com. The project is called Frozen Frontier!
