Well done you guys who got the DVD.

Lil' ol' me - I'm still waiting to see it!



W & T
Those RUS guys clips were enjoyable. Great reminder of how hard some of the riding was. Nice to see video not concentrating on THAT bridge.
And they, like us, seem to have not had thoughts of switching the cameras on when it really got tough and needed effort and concentration (and mates!).

Did my rear end really look that big?

Mine came and I just watched it. Be sure to watch the extras. The scenery and water crossings are stunning. BTW, regular shipping from England just took around a week and was rather inexpensive.

""Did my rear end really look that big?""

NOT TO WORRY Tony, while watching the DVD some friends were over , all much younger than you and I (77) and they were truly impressed that you do such rides. They give me s*#t for taking some of the off roads we do but I am sure you get the same, maybe more "if he can ,we can "admiration.

I do not remember looking at your 'rear' but will check with wife the next time we are watching that DVD again.

Thanks to you and Terry for taking part in all this with Walt.

ciao, gale

Gale.
I just looked to the last page. You made the Circle, more than I did!
I'll read through next week - I have Dacha duty this weekend.

Seriously, thanks for the kind words - past and present. It all comes down to "How do I get out of this? I know what's behind and no way am I going back. So.... "

Don't let others tell you otherwise - we both know the date in the (much used) passport is wrong and it's only the mirror that's getting older!I'm the guy on the left - just keeps going!

Makes me smile.

I did have a long and vigorous debate with the guys who put together the main film.

I wanted a lot more material in it ... but they were very adamant on the need to keep it tight. In the end I hit on the idea of putting together a lot of footage that I felt was interesting and relevant into a series of "extras" ... that would also appear on the DVD, thus getting the footage out there and yet not spoiling the integrity of the main film from the film makers perspective.

They agreed, but I had to make the extras films myself. I locked myself in a room for a week to edit and compile the extras films.

But to hear many people tell me the extras are absolutely worthwhile, brings it all back home. Cheers guys, and thanks!

according to the Adventure Spec site, the main film is 31 mins and the extras are 73 mins...seems like maybe they went overboard on the tightness of the main film, eh?

When I first watched the main movie, I really thought it was too short and started watching it again. I realized that what it was it was. But then I watched all of the extras, and that's the parts I REALLY liked.

BIG PLUE ONE to the last few comments and since I truly drool over all your ADV RRs I was really looking forward to this DVD of yours.

I was kinda "WTF" when the first part was over and did the same as many , started to watch it again to see what I had missed , then WOW there were all the specific links on the right side of the disc.

Please forward to Adventure-Spec that I would have been very VERY disappointed with only the "main film' and what encouraged me to purchase the second DVD for a friend was the 'specials' you added yourself Walter!!

So big thanks to you Walter , your addition saved many disappointed riders out here.

me 0.02 worth

Walter,

Feel free to tell the producers from my perspective that the main movie needs to be 90 minutes, not 30.

Most scooters in Mongolia are Chinese ones that sell for about 500 bux in the markets

Great Video's Walter, i can see now why smaller is better, no GS on that trip for me

How does one set up a trip like that, what's involved?

Great job on the RR, keep it up
