You have to find a place where that single car can dodge/reverse. We all had walkie-talkies so the leading vehicle gave instructions.


PS: I did 200 GB all kind of videos, also a "B roll" :wink:

Very nice!

I recently travelled for a much smaller distance on a similar road in Wales... In a Volkswagen passat, which was alright until it became too acquainted with a large rock, bending many things underneath it. Luckily I made it to a town where it was roughly bent back by the local mechanic aided by powerful welsh shouting.
Some of those mainland European roads are on my list to do if I ever ressurect my Landcruiser

It might be a while, it needs about €2000 in parts and two days of welding but I will tell you if I do get it going and make a plan
