... and on to the hottest place in Australia. Since this lecture had to be canceled at short notice last year, we are all the more pleased that Ronald Prokein is now coming to us to talk about the adventure that has taken him across the globe: After a round-the-world bike ride, a kayak tour on the Lena, the European Run and other spectacular journeys, Ronald Prokein undertook his seventh tour a few years ago, this time again with partner Andy Winter.

They drove from Rostock via Russia to Mongolia in a Lada Niva, then on to China, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia in various vehicles. Main mission: To set up two weather stations in Juchugei (north-eastern Siberia) for the first time. The meteorological stations were to prove that the region is even colder than the officially coldest inhabited place in the world: Oimjakon (-71.2 degrees Celsius - Guinness Book record). The meteorologist Jörg Kachelmann is a close cooperation partner of the ongoing project. The geographical end point of the tour: Marble Bar (hottest place in Australia).

In Jutschugei, Winter and Prokein met up with an old friend who had to have his frozen hands amputated a month earlier because he had broken into the ice on a snowmobile at -50 degrees Celsius. In the taiga, the two Mecklenburgers' car crashed several times; Winter and Prokein spoke to a former Vietnam fighter and met the friendliest person in the world in Laos. At times, Prokein lived almost penniless on the street in Singapore. At 43 degrees Celsius in the shade, he then walked the last 100 kilometers through deserted prairie to Marble Bar in Australia.
