You have got to read this womans tale. It's mind boggling and reminds those of us old enough not only of the disaster Chernobyl was, but the regime that inspired it in the first place.

Click on the story called "Ghost Town"

I'm not sure I would be taking the risks she does on her Ninja, but the commentary and pictures are incredible and chilling.

This is old news. I read this a couple of years ago, and there has been a lot of discussion about this worldwide.

Some say it is fake. Others (myself included) think that the story itself may have been embellished, but the photos and the basic facts are real.

Nonetheless, it is fascinating.

Wasnt lurking around the internet two years ago, so it's was new to me.

I don't know whether its fake or not, as you said, the pictures probably aren't. Did she really go there? Don't know, don't care, still thought provoking stuff.

Thanks for the feedback, maybe some of the other newer members will find it new like I did.

I saw this site a few years ago as well.
Really interesting, and if this woman is really such a hard arse bike rider, war freak and good looking to boot, I want to meet her!

Best wishes from Australia.

Funny, I already sent her an E-mail asking her to marry me! :p LOL, I was thinking the same thing you were. It was meant as a joke but I really did send it! We'll see if she'll take me up on the offer to take a vacation here in the states.

I'm sure you wouldn't have been the first Driz.
Actually, her pass time re military archaeology looked pretty interesting. I think it's the bike rider, outdoor woman thing that I appreiciate. Good on her, and I'm sure she would be a really interesting person to share a beer with. Great to see if she replies, although after the amount of hits her site got, you'll be lucky!

Best wishes from Oz.
