As promised, the mechanic had gotten right into repairing our van in the morning. The faulty driver side rear wheel bearing was replaced and our expedition vehicle is now rolling south silky smooth. Or at least as silky as a 2001 Iveco Daily rolls at this point of its lifespan. Either way, excited to be back on the southbound route. If all goes well, and we make it to Bucharest tomorrow, we should be able to hop on the bikes on Thursday, roll out and pick up the slack by fast forwarding through Romania, Bulgaria and just to beyond Istanbul, from where the trail begins.
