We Might Be Crazy Because We're Taking Our Lada On A 3,500 Mile Trip To Asia

Two weeks ago we bought a Lada and put our stickers all over it. Now I’m about to tell you why. It involves 3,500 miles across some of the most rugged terrain that Turkey, Georgia, Nagorno Karabakh and Armenia have to offer. Are we insane? Maybe. But you have to be a little insane to attempt the Caucasian Challenge,… »8/20/15 9:00am8/20/15 9:00am
