Those trucks look very Bulgarian, Borislav
Please send me number 2

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 ?

How can you change gears behind your back. That's just crazy.

Hey Bob, if you can find one like this Could you send it to me? Or maybe you could use one like this?
I hope all is well over there.
Been busy with a bussiness venture here at home but things are slowing down now so it will be soon time to catch up with everyone.

It is not easy to do it Alex ... You have to see it to believe it ... The truck engine is inside the cabine - no any free place in it ...
The cold here is great, since tomorrow it will begin snowing again for 2 days ... to the end of next week it will be very cold again ...

The Gama Goat was fun but the M113 is one hard ride.
