When is this road trip happening?

You may have noticed that the countdown on our blog has reached zero and we still haven’t announced a start date for a trip. There are a few reasons this has happened.

  1. Our car is not ready. Some of the air suspension parts took longer to get ahold of than we thought and some needed to be custom made. We probably could have had it done on time, but there was no need because of reasons 2 and 3.
  2. We were waiting to see what happened in Ukraine with the hopes that we might still be able to go there. It is clear now that we won’t be able to go anytime soon.
  3. While we were waiting for parts and on the situation in Ukraine we decided to go ahead with our long time dream of importing cars from Japan. This process took much longer than expected and we need to sell the cars before we can take a trip to Europe.

The result of all of this is that we are very busy dealing with our cars from Japan, and our Lada is making progress towards being done in the meantime. We are tentatively planning on picking up our Lada in September and taking a shorter version of our original road trip.

In the meantime I will be posting updates on our cars from Japan for those interested. Bird and I have posted some write ups on another blog already, so I’ll repost them here.

Thank you to all of you for your support and encouragement on both Restoroadtrip and our Japanese Import dream.
