Patriot UAZ made in Russia…

IMG0139AOuch, I fell in love with the new patriot made by UAZ in Russia. It is big, beautiful, tough and made for Russian roads, or lack of roads thereof…

The image is one of a dozen new patriots that people have bought who live in our flat areas. This has given me a chance to look them over and see them in action. Believe you me, this is one fine vehicle and the guys around here are snapping them up as fast as they make them. Money well spent, is what I say…

Workmanship is topnotch…

Just dreaming though! Our Volga, Sammy is just too good of a vehicle to let go of and she is paid for a long time ago. Still need to do some work on her, but she still starts, fist key turn and she loves to travel…

What more could we ask for? Though I can look and dream once in awhile…

Windows to Russia…

A survivor of six heart attacks and a brain tumor, a grumpy bear of a man, whom has declared Russia as his new and wonderful home. His wife is a true Russian Sweet Pea of a girl and she puts up with this bear of a guy and keeps him in line. Thank God for my Sweet Pea and Russia.
