All that snow melting at once is guaranteed to cause trouble, keep us posted and stay safe.
All these tracks are made in the former USSA, except the 3rd ? a Chesh one. Number 2 is so called GAZ 66 ? model designed 1966 and tested by Russians in Vietnam War. It has 8 cylinder V ? type benzine engine. Unbelievable inconvenient to manage it ? the lever for gear changing is placed behind your back ? it is a real challenge to change gears. It is 4x4 having special differentials with increased inner friction, also a system for automatic regulation of the tire pressure, so its road ability is really nice.
Yes, we expect a flood when the snow begins melting, but it will be not next week ? we will see. It happened in the end of February 2005, when the snow melting combined with 2 day powering rain ?
