some of these places are stunning but never in a million years would you get me on them. Look at that footpath with the chains!
that goes through the mountains is incredible.
how did the do you start building it?
and discard the ones you don't need.
how did you find this, BG?
Why why WHY WHY WHY would these people go there?
I mean, you can die climbing Ayers Rock and indeed people have... Why do people do this?
The Bolivan Roads reminded me of bits of the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, where I am from...
I love this blogspot... how did you find it? Am going to send it onto 20 friends who will love it too :)
are the A386 though.
try crossing it on a Sunday night!
isn't in N16! Do your research!
that looks incredible, I'd love to walk on that.
That 'normal' Russian road where people fall asleep and crash sounds incredibly creepy.
I'm getting vertigo just looking at the pictures.
I am so going to go on that 'road'. It'll be awesome.
The Bolivia road is fucking incredible. I wonder how many bus drivers screeched round them corners whistling the Italian Job? Probably not many, actually.
they would be fucking scary.... but i want to go there...
AWESOME THREADAGE BY BOBBYGEORGE!
theres no way i would go on ANY of those roads. especially the walking one. FUCK HOLDING ON TO CHAINS!
would I walk along here:
i mean HOW stupid/suicidal would you have to be???
i bet theres crash mats out of shot
It's like the Chinese version of Gladiators.
The told me it was "THE most dangerous road in the world"
it's still great.
(I think I'm justified in using that word here)
The one carved into the mountain is amazing.
that's dedicaton for sure
I also checked out Iran, looks great. and now I'm on to airplane and boat house conversions.
There's loads of great stuff on this blog. Have you seen the animal acrobatics post?
Check this picture out:
look at the fishing one
this freaked me out so I stopped reading:
I may send the link to sarah.
she'll love it. heh.
a yeti crab!!
best animal EVER!!
that one freaked me out too. I don't like crabs.
Look at the frozen wave, it's amazing!
this such a great blogspot!
it linked to this page.
no. 1..I won't spoil it for you...
I bet Theo or guntrip has it. I'm going to ask. If you're reading this Theo and guntrip can I borrow that book please?
actually can I have it first, I want to be able to read all pages....
It depends how good the couple of pages after that line are.
Check out the storm in the first pic:
If I was that boat, I'd be doing a u-turn as fast as I could.
I'm not a boat at all.
how many times have I heard that line before
karma sutra for nerds. heh.
now i'm scared again!
check out these clouds:
but these are just pictures! I've looked at them all and I'm fine.
i too, would not want to be that boat!
i love clouds. go clouds!
I think I prefer this one though:
you're begging to differ with now.
I'm such a div. I think i'm overawed by the beauty of nature or meths or something.
with the rest of the crew.
They'd probably give you a nickname, like shit-pants or dump-fronts or twat.
I went on the extreme mountain bike ride along that road. Pretty scarey in some ways, especially because I was really hung over, it was pissing it down and you had to stay on the left (ie. right next to the edge) because cars were coming at you. A few days before I did it, an Israeli girl had gone over the edge and died. Although I can see it happening, it would take quite a concentration lapse or extreme fatigue to go over the edge...reckon she just killed herself.
I'm never trusting this blog again. EVER.
It looks amazing though.
gave me vertigo.
I dug this hole:
the arrow points to a truck. I didn't put the arrow there. Or the truck.
when next to the buildings:
a giant plughole that's going to suck up all the sky.
we just spent a very interesting few minutes reading that
I must have not been concentrating.
in France is pretty bloody terrifying. No fucking barriers
if anyone is interested.
It's not as interesting as the other two parts.
It was great.
Mostly dangerous for bolivians stacked in trucks and buses, not if you're a tourist going back up in a mini-van. Unless you cross paths with a truck or bus stacked with bolivians. then you're dead.
A bus had gone over the edge the day before I did it, people were stopping to look at it and take pictures, which is really gross
you go from snow topped 5000meters to jungle 1000 meters.
+ there's a father blessing everyone at midpath (but you have to get there to get the blessing of course)
but I can't stop eating ice. Do you know of an online forum that I might be interested in?
but I do know of a site that encourages wanking over animal porn
caused a wave of vertigo to pass through me. The switchbacks up to Val D'Isere are pretty hair-raising when it's your mate driving and it starts snowing. And you haven't got snowchains.
