The name of this river, Arkanzas, is the exact same way the American state of Arkansas is spelled (Арканзас).
Well, the mascot for the University of Arkansas is a giant Russian Boar.

Never heard about Arkansas river in Russia...
Far East is a bit of special place, most (or at least very big part) of settlers in the beginning of 20th century were Ukrainians, there is still even jewish autonomy there.
Nature is quite nice there, otherwise it is still underdeveloped region (not exactly poor, just infra and remoteless is the key)

Арканзас (Arkanzas) is a very minor river, it's not even included on Russian Wikipedia.

What does "съеэд" means in relation to a road or motorway? There are signs with it on KAD.

The type of street (road) that have sloping relief. The same thing that the "descent".

Ah, you are alive. I didn't knew, since your site is not updated very often (Great maps, BTW).

Suprised to see Arkansas (river) in Russia, didn't knew about it.

Guys, I would like to ask for an advice/suggestion.

I have got an interesting travel idea which, in short, is a road trip from Russia's Eastern order (the actual origin would be Lithuania) all the way to Vladivostok: http://goo.gl/maps/ypi0P

Is that a viable idea or is it not really possible? I mean in terms of the road condition, potential dangers etc.? Are there any serious obstacles apart from the distance itself?

Would the road be paved (tarmac) all the way or are there some unpaved sections still (that would be a crucial factor I suppose)?

Just though that not that many people have actually done something like this (i.e. an outright 10000km road trip) which makes it rather tempting and exciting.

Railway would be a better option. I think in some parts of far east, the roads are tarmac but it is probably used by trucks. Also at this time of the year, the roads are full with mud.

I know all about the railway and that is a whole different (and much much easier) thing which I'll probably do as well.

The trip would take place in summertime to ensure best possible weather conditions.

I guess that in summer even though it may be warm, but the heat may melt the snow and cause water to come to the middle of the road. The best weather condition would be a dry cold sunny winter day for that type of environment, which also has its own negative points.

However I will wait to see what Russians themselves have to say on the topic.

Summers in Siberia get pretty warm and I really doubt there is water from melting snow (unless you're high in the mountains?) on the main roads.

Well, the road is paved (as of 2011 there were some unpaved sections a few kilometers each but these were under construction and must've been completed since then). Siberian summers are dry and hot. And the most serious obstacle is boredom.

Actually, this guy travelled all the way from Moscow to North Korean border in 2010 and filmed his entire journey:

Mega lol. There is no snow in those part of Siberia from May to October at all.

To Pansori. You'd better ask such things in that part of the forum too. There is a higher chance to get really very informative and useful information. But personally, I think your idea is great.
