Great photos, I/0.  It appears your children are enjoying their summer vacation.

If anyone would like to give me a sanity check (Gator and Boe where are you when I need whacking upside the head for entertaining utter stupidity), feel free..


We are, all 6 of us that is, considering a several week long trip back to Omsk in June - July '18 (Mrs and our youngest might remain a bit longer). :o :o


At this time, I'm still compiling a several page list of the things we could collectively @!#$ up..... :rolleyes:

It will be a great adventure. 

My wife drove from Estonia to Chelyabinsk with her Russian husband in 3-4 days.  I mentioned your planned trip and her only remark was "With four kids!?"

However, this is what Ozzies do.  I recall in my travels while working for the UN encountering many Australians in their caravans motoring throughout Europe, some taking almost a year for the journey. 

Warning:  I knew an engineering friend from Montana, who as a youngster drove with his family from Montana to Alaska.  Day after day, just wilderness, mostly forest.   After spending some time i n Alaska, Dad told the family it was time to drive back to Montana.  Mom answered, "The kids and I are flying on a plane, you will drive the car."

By the way, which direction: driving East or West?

Entry point?

Stops along the way?

Renting or purchasing a vehicle?

Gator- Most likely in from the East based on convenience and price.

Airport Codes commencing with the new Wellcamp airport which is 15 minutes drive from home and to be honest, this is one of the things that makes this idea viable...  WTB, SYD, PEK, OVB, OMS and return.

Entry through Novosibirsk (OVB).

http://www.wellcamp.com.au/
http://www.sydneyairport.com.au/
http://en.bcia.com.cn/
http://eng.tolmachevo.ru/
http://oms.aero/en/

4 stops including final destination.

Will probably rent a vehicle at some stage but nothing is set in concrete yet.

You are flying.  I assumed based on misreading this post and your posts about driving that you were motoring cross country and seeing the sights along the way.  So this trio is a much more normal than I antipated. 


The trip will teach your children  about thier mama's roots. My major concern is that they will become bored after a while.   They have each other, however.   Of couse, if you venture into the Altay, be very mindful of ticks.

Gator - Yes, I guess in other posts I have eluded to the drive option and it was one on the consideration list. Realistically, flying in to base and a bit of driving from there is a more doable option.


That said, shewhoshallnotbenamedrightnow woke up this morning with second thoughts about the whole idea... :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Traveling with young children is never easy.  I can understand your wife's trepidation.
