Stuck In The Sand14 Aug 2010, by Uncategorized in
We are in the middle of the desert in Karakalpakstan, Uzbekistan, hunting for the ghost ships of the Aral Sea near Muynaq. For the first time some locals just gave us some bad directions and we took a wrong turn into the desert. So far Uzbekistan has been very welcoming, but we decided to pull out a wimpy get out of jail free card and fire up Google Earth and the GPS to know exactly where we need to go. Oh yeah, Jean scraped something (non-essential) off the bottom of car 206, and Tom just got 201 stuck in the sand. Team Cooper Trooper is pulling him out now while I look up the GPS coordinates so we can find these ships…. Ah, Tom just got unstuck! Gotta go!
