the crazy part about that clip - and also several others in the series - is that they looked intentional.

perhaps not murderously so, but at the very least, it appears that the driver made the quick mental calculation that the damage to his vehicle would be minimal enough to not bother avoiding the accident.

the other guy? fuck the other guy.

Road of bones - photos

Hi guys - sorry for the delay. Here are some of the footage I've got from the road of bones. All of us focused on video in this part and I have a video clip coming up in some few days.

Meanwhile enjoy the photos and the photos from Geir when he is back.

Geir and Erik on the old summer road


Another broken bridge


Crossing a stream


Nature


Just another river to cross


Beatiful nature

Great photos and good storytelling, Steve. Way to persevere and keep on going. Looking forward to your videos and Geir's.

The juxtaposition of this shot, Rod (you basking in the sun w/jesus shoes, your socks warming on the bench) next to Steve's chronicling of their white, wilted, worn-out, wet, wintry feets.......

Oh - and also for all the meteorite shots that amazed the World last week.
I've seen the full clip of that Lada driver, he was a stand over merchant. A truck driver was fixing a flat and he tried to extort money with threats, the truckie called up other truckies on the CB, they boxed him in and dealt him and his mate a bit of summary justice.
