Me too. I expect he's exceeded his account limits.
I had this problem and needed to upgrade my Photobucket account and actually pay something.

@PhilinFrance: why not ride together? Will send you a PM.
Be carefull, last year, 24.5.2013, was absolutely impossible to cross Durmitor.
It was about 5 deg C, rainy and lot of snow, you can see pictures on:

WHen we rode through Durmitor last year end of June almost all snow was gone. Only a few isolated patches remained in the higher areas on the mountainsides.

Looks like it will be quite busy in that area this year. We'll be returning there as well in June.

Hi Gliga,

thanks for this impressive RR. Five Years ago we were also in Bosnia. Perfect to explore.

It would be very kind of you if you post the tracks of your journey. The old megaupload links dont work anymore.

Regards,
Fastboy

Wow guys...When I began writing this RR I couldn't even imagine it would receive this much interest and positive comments... And for that I can only say: THANK YOU ALL!!

And because you were such great audience here are few more photos that did't make the first cut. You can expect new RR in following days, rather than continuing this one
