They Went That Way... -#142


Desert driving is like no other driving condition I can think of. It's like driving on a mixture of snow, oil and gravel. It moves, it lives, there are mini avalanches, it sticks, it spins out, it GETS EVERYWHERE... It's all about the momentum and gravity. It's a little like surfing I like to think.

So here we are on the crest of a wave.

Only one way, but down... and whatever you do - keep going straight and try not to hit that brake.
