I liked this hillsides near Novoturayevo and decided to visit it once more when weather is better.

View to Novoturayevo and railroad from high ground. When it's been build this railroad was part of Trans Siberian railroad route. Now it's "historical transsib", but still very busy with long and heavy freight trains:

Nearest railroad station to Novoturayevo is Taldy-Bulak. White water tower is there from a steam engines era, but this classic soviet electric locomotive ВЛ-10 consumes only constant current at 3 kV rate:

This is the last ride through Bashkiria of summer 2021. I've decided to visit a memorial site, where first high yield oil well was drilled back in the 1950's.

Local oil reservoir called "Shkapovo". The irony is Shkapovo is a very small settelment, where only 1 (one) man of Chuvash people and three Russians live (according to 2010 cenus). The real boost from this oil was given to Priyutovo settlement. But Priyutovo suffers from lack of status - despite it's scale it was never made a district center (which status was given either to very small Ermeeevo village or Belebey town nearby).

Completely enjoy your photos and a chance to have a look around the Moscow area. Looks like a nice area and lots to see. You take some really nice shots. Keep them coming, not tired after two years.

Thanks! Yes, pretty soon, in the first weeks of november Bashkiria should be covered with first snow. I wonder when would be first snow in Moscow, it's hard to predict last decades :)

Here was a small village called Klucherovka (russian "kluch" can mean a key or a water spring). Only this small pond remains. This was a place for summer early morning fishing trips with my cousin. I'm not a fisherman myself, but i've mended bonfire and just enjoyed a company. Didn't go to Klucherovka pond this summer, i've thought it dried out or covered with duckweed. But no! Still nice here:

As i've said before, there's a lot of springs and swamps dried out for the last decades. Here was a nice small waterfall, now it's not:

There was some little small rains these days, but i've really had a hard time finding some mud to try Sur-Ron in it. That miserable puddle is all i've found. Go figure! Dirt roads become so dry through the hot summer, they just absorbing any amount of water like a sponge:

When i've ride with a hub motor, i've tried to avoid deep puddles or fords, but now with Sur-Ron i didn't restrain myself for some small river crossings:

A blast from the past! That rusty object is an old soviet stela intendet to greet people, who entered Bashkiria on trains from west border. Still has a Bashkir Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic emblem on it:

Sur-Ron has a relatively small battery. 50 kilometers of riding the dirt roads through hills and ravines and that's it! Here is my predicament, i've reached only half of my path, but i've left with less than a half of battery charge:

What i've liked in Sur-Ron - is how well built it is. With a light wheelsets it has ability to drive through any rough terrain with a uncanny degree of a comfort!

I see a nice hill:

Yes, riding Sur-Ron i look like a giant on a donkey, there a small battery (for me), but it drives beautifully on a rough terrains, well built and so, so much easier to move around! Totally worth it!

Well... that's it for this week!
