Photo: A rough ride

Yesterday I mentioned how Stuart went on an instructional outing with a local Jeep club. Here is another of the vehicles in his group of 20 drivers on this trail that was chosen for its opportunities to teach what a Jeep can and cannot do. This Jeep looks like it has scraped rocks a few times.

It took the 20 vehicles 8 hours to complete the trail. Stuart asked us to guess how far we thought the group traveled. As you can see from today's and yesterday's photos, it is pretty slow going for each of the 20 Jeeps to creep through such difficult terrain.

The answer is that the group travelled one-half mile (.8 km) in their 8 hours. Stuart reported that he learned a lot about driving his Jeep, but he does not plan to take any trails like that again.

This week we are showing photos of some of the remarkable sights to Egypt on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Good Lord! This car looks like it is coming apart - how can a vehicle stand this kind of punishment? Bet the local dealer sells a lot of replacements after a short time of this kind of driving.

Oh my goodness, this shot is a bit scary!

8 hours to go 1/2 mile does not sound like something for which the MTV generation would have patience.

I would need full body armor to attempt this! LOL!
Nice capture!

Looks odd; almost impossible to get into this situation. Great image.

It is astonishing that this car is still operating as intended with the wheels askew as they are.
