Russian Rovers

Lots of good Rover spotting here in Moscow. This silver 110 is the only one I've managed to get a pic of though.

My truck finally arrived and is pictured here sitting in front of the US Embassy.

Last pic is a Lada Niva, I didn't know buckon37's had spent any time in Russia...

I might have a green oval for that hardtop somewhere in the basement . . . when you make it back stateside.

Somebody on Dweb told me that NAS Defenders often get swiped to be later sold in Russia, where they command a huge premium.

I could never tell if my leg was being pulled or not. Is this true, and should we be concerned about all the Sergei's running loose about America?

Thanks.

Everything commands a big premium in Russia. Foreign goods are super expensive, as is produce, don't even bother looking for good orange juice. I'll let you guys know if anyone steals my truck or my pants.

I am at the Embassy right now, but I'm in the Army, not the State dept. Its much nicer living in Russia with the support network for sure. A full year of studying Russian was great for listening to the news, but has proved worthless for trying to communicate with people - like in the US, most people talk in a mix of slang, cliches, and abbreviated thoughts - so its going to take me a while be able to understand the guy at the shashlik stand.

One interesting thing, there are a bunch of "Expeditisia" stores in Moscow right now - its sort of a shameless G4 knockoff, except they do more offroading. They are also sponsoring a cross-russia winter race which people can either pay to enter, or compete a la G4. Here is one of their English-language pages:

Oh, and thanks Ron, but I've got the green ovals, just stashed them away. Did you get the winchmoney I sent?

This was a better day for Rover spotting. Maybe I'll post some pix of the sights sometime also.
