Hi,

I am working on setting up some concerts in Moscow for a New York band. They will be coming from Riga in their own van, with instruments, merchandise, etc.

My questions are:
1) Approximately how long a drive is Riga-Moscow
2) Is it "dangerous" - at night or day - particularly for foreigners?
3) How evil is Russian customs at the Latvia/Russia road border, and how much time should they expect to waste there? Does road customs work 24/7?

Thanks in advance,

john
