Day Four Hundred and Ninety Nine - Off Road

It can be a rough journey on the rainforest trail from Georgetown to Lethem. For this truck it was a bit too rough. Passing a fallen tree the trailer went too close to the edge and started to slide in the mud. With a full load, including drums of petrol, the whole truck rolled right off the road. Both driver and passenger survived without any serious injury.


  1. I like the strange distortion of scale- that fullsize truck looks like a box of bagged-up rubbish. Ironic that that's what it is now, though, in the middle of pristine rainforest. Bummer. They'll never winch that back up again- but I guess most of the useful bits will get salvaged over time?

  2. Thanks goodness this never happened to us, well... at least not with a full load :-)
