    Day 3 Austria to Arad, Romania
    Trevor and I lost Shayne and Helen somewhere in roadworks around Vienna at the start of the day but we all made it to the campsite in Arad in time for tea :)
    I made fajitas which were apparently a bit spicy for some...

    We were joined by this 78 but im afraid we only waved and didnt say hello. 20190819_201820.jpg 20190819_205819.jpg
    Aww, Trevor, never happier than stroking some furry testicles with legs 20190820_072259.jpg

    Day 4 Arad to Radu's house near Pojorata, Romania. Radu is a very knowledgable mechanic in W.G.C and i pop in and ask him stuff from time to time. He invited me to visit him in Romania the last time i went but it never happened so this time i said i would definitely visit.
    I must have followed my mate google for twenty miles so ill keep checking street maps! I have to say that was a long ba%$£rd drive and we were glad to arrive, many, many, many hours later. The cheap thermometer i had in my car got up to 48 degrees C on the journey there.

    Radu had got his friend Catalin to guide us for "a bit" of green laneing, He jumped in my passenger seat, shayne and Helen next and Trevor had Radu join him in the 120. 20190821_164513.jpg
    Top man, spoke as much english as i did Romanian... There was much pointing! 20190821_164516.jpg 20190821_164544.jpg 20190821_164558.jpg 20190821_170132.jpg 20190821_170159.jpg 20190821_170206.jpg 20190821_170339.jpg 20190821_170341.jpg 20190821_170343.jpg 20190821_170346.jpg 20190821_172513.jpg 20190821_172620.jpg 20190821_172625.jpg 20190821_172628.jpg 20190821_172633.jpg 20190821_172641.jpg 20190821_172648.jpg 20190821_173443.jpg 20190821_173453.jpg 20190821_173455.jpg 20190821_173524.jpg 20190821_173525.jpg 20190821_173527.jpg 20190821_173544.jpg 20190821_173552.jpg 20190821_173637.jpg

    What are the chances though? 20190821_180445.jpg 20190821_184535.jpg 20190821_184536.jpg 20190821_184553.jpg 20190821_184559.jpg 20190821_184603.jpg 20190821_184617.jpg 20190821_184633.jpg 20190821_184646.jpg 20190821_184648.jpg
    We stopped at what I think was a ski resort or hotel. 20190821_191306.jpg 20190821_191320.jpg 20190821_191324.jpg 20190821_191339.jpg 20190821_191359.jpg 20190821_191407.jpg
    Don't ever ask Supergran to smile for a photo 20190821_191411.jpg
    We were served sausage and polenta with goats cheese in the mix. And a none driver may have has some palinka 20190821_193918.jpg
    And there was an old ???? parked up. 20190821_200607.jpg
    I think just before these photos 2 mahoosive deer ran accross the tracks. Theres not too many photos from now on but my co pilot, with new found exhuberence decided that i should drive faster and from then on shall forever be known as Gas Gas as that's all he kept saying to me :) 20190821_202125.jpg 20190821_202131.jpg 20190821_202137.jpg 20190821_202147.jpg 20190821_202213.jpg 20190821_202215.jpg 20190821_202218.jpg 20190821_203920.jpg 20190821_205408.jpg 20190821_205413.jpg 20190821_205441.jpg 20190821_205444.jpg 20190821_205446.jpg 20190821_205500.jpg 20190821_205505.jpg
    We didn't finish the planned route as it was getting dark but it was an awesome 8 hours? of offroading/laning in places we would never have got to see as Gas Gas had to unlock gates to let us into places.

    In 18 years (and every weekend in the mountains or the countryside of some sort) I’ve seen 2, one behind a wall so I only saw its head, the other a ‘teenager’ or older cub, sitting on the road verge eating a Mars Bar chucked out by a passing motorist.

    Nick, I know that climb, it starts as a stroll in the woods and ends up something more akin to K2 :lol:

    Do you have night vision on your cam Nick because it was a lot darker than it looks in the vid , shortly after that i dropped right back so i could turn headlights on which rather than improving visibility instead showed me a solid wall of dust .

    Was fun to remind Helen about the bear warning sign we seen on entry though which said something like do not be here after dark or you will get eaten :lol:

    No night vision that I'm aware of, it is handy as a rear view mirror Nd I've noticed it can be clearer to use it than not

    The next day we left for Clives house, not many pictures taken. Radu had told us to go round a lake which would take a little longer but the views would be worth it. Umm, took about 3 hours i think, hot dusty and couldnt see much of the lake
    20190822_124332.jpg 20190822_124337.jpg 20190822_125435.jpg
    The journey seemed to take forever and wasn't helped by a large traffic jam as we neared Clives, I did find this hour or so most entertaining for some reason or other but i will let Trevor explain that one :)
    The only two other photos of the day, Trevor looking a bit more relaxed after his epic stool
