0102 - Day 13 - Novokuznetsk to Novosibirsk 14/06/19

Hopefully the last preservation day but it meant we were still unable to really have fun on the gravel stages, although Giles might disagree! However, we made it into the Marriott in one piece, and were both grateful to get there, and happy to find that there was a workshop we could get the car into and where we understood they could fabricate us a pair of replacement main springs. So I drove the car over behind the "fixer" (in terrible Friday night rush hour traffic, and with two stops to allow the car to cool down), finally getting back to the hotel in time for a late dinner. Tomorrow I will be back at the workshop first thing to make sure we get the car work underway quickly - something tells me it might be along day!
