Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: Long Way Down

Please - don't waste your time.
This was serialized on the UK TV after their previous trip - "long way round" (predictable name) when they went round the world.

Fair enough, the 1st trip was a first time for them, they had no clue and made mistakes.
BUT
The 2nd time they made more!!
One likes to do wheelies when he is hundreds of miles away from a hospital
The other keeps forgetting that if you put your frount brakes on, halfway through a gravel corner - you will come off.
They are on a trip of a lifetime and they do nothing but winge and moan!
Worst of all, they have no time to take anything in as they make a very unrealistic schedule for themselves to start with.
Now, if they recut the footage for the film version, it may LOOK OK, but trust me, the series was maddening.

Re: Long Way Down

If you do decide to go see see if you can work out how Claudio's accident happened. Where did the 650 appear from? With the new trucks in Malawi (the trucks required to carry spare indicators and mirrors) - and then it reappeared when they were supposedly on their own ;-/

Some great scenery and no doubt something we would all like to try.
