    Works great on YouTube. Just spent my Sunday morning with coffee and all 13 episodes on my 42" TV.

    Walter has a whole week to get ready for next Sunday morning's binge watch.

    couldn't get to that last camp spot (on @Colebatch last video) when I was there in '14 riding the same area, the bridge had collapsed from the floods that year, all that's left is shown below...

    I am enjoying these videos.

    I just hope the protagonist does not get caught up in a sex scandal and the producers have to kill the show.

    Paul - you didn't try to do your Evil Kenevil impression to get across the river? Hmm.

    Subscribed (finally)! I'm a fairly recent follower compared to most on here (last 12 months or so), and have been slowly chipping away at this thread. The videos and photos are invaluable :thumb Thanks very much, Walter! Much respect and admiration from me.

    Cheers,

    Ben

    OK its been a while since the last episode of the video series. But here is Episode 14 - very much a tribute to offroad riding in the Russian Altai.

    Another great video! That was some very pretty areas you guys rode through. I think I saw one guy/gal with a fishing pole fishing from a wooden pedestrian bridge. Do you guys ever fish for food while on the ride? I imagine there is trout in those rivers.

    Bloody hell, the scenery is the most beautiful for the whole trip so far.
    Oyabun wants to go to Altai mountains.
