  1. Hey Everyone,

    Ive been away with work duties in Kyrgzstan, and back for a month before heading off again. Im gonna relocate tot he UK as the flights from Australia are a pain in the ass, the Uk is a little closer and besides i prefer the cold better than, Bush Fires, Floods and most animals that kill you.

    Anyways just thought id say hi and post a few photos of my time int he Mountains

    Me at a glacier front, standing on the frozen river

  2. Glad you are back safe and sound Chris we missed you. Amazing pictures there and the glare of your bald spot ruined the first one :D glad you are back safe mate !
  3. lol, it got slightly burnt that day. As for safe i had a situation when i arrived in Bishket, my escorts didnt turn up and i was surrounded by some baddies and they insisted i got into a taxi and they would 'take' me to my hotel. I wasnt staying in a hotel i was supposed to be going to a safe house.
    After 3 hours of waiting and been threaten with a tazar and really big knife and forced to pay for my kit, they turned up and got me out of there. All good though, been in a few situations in my time and i just kept calm and used my noggin.

    Flew to Ireland 2 weeks later and enjoyed a massive bar fight with my crew against the rival village. Got a 3 inch glass cut on my wrist from my ninja type reflex's, better that than my eye ball i suppose. I also met a few travelers that asked me if i would like to donate my fuel to them and they would leave me be, i made a deal that they left me with enough to get to a fuel station, both partys happy and i kept my front teeth.

    OH and i for got the Kyrg rebels helped up with 'stopping the avalanches ' in a spot we needed to be.......they fired some HE shells into the mountain side with a 105 howitzer,,,, that was fun.

    see you sunday eh
  4. Beautiful pictures and never a dull moment by the sound of it. :cool:
