    Title suggestions:
    "Rich people with poor taste flaunt vacation while destroying natural landscapes."
    or
    "Extreme explorers get lame village people to buy Defenders by spreading "One life - live it" message one sticker at a time."

    Hi, I agree with you, but just for your information I followed the right path, but my friend followed some ruts that he saw. We respect the nature . But, again, yes the correct way was not this one.

    Thanks Albert. Always enjoyed your journeys and videos. I suspect it takes significant effort to choreograph them.

    Eric - "Rich people with poor taste flaunt vacation" - Land Rovers are like Jeeps in the EU. I wouldn't characterized them as for "rich people". I've taken similar 'vacations' and not once felt I was imposing on 'lame' village people. Made a lot of friends on those trips. You know, the "deplorables".

    One life, live it is a bull**** marketing line meant to get us to buy Land Rovers. We're supposed to realize that, not regurgitate it upon people who don't give a damn about our "roam the world" life philosophy stolen from a British car manufacturer, that frankly is impossible for all the but most highly privileged on earth who are on seemingly perpetual vacation as evidenced by the countless capslock titled video of extreme exploration. I also take issue with the tacky driving billboard covered in graphics, stickers, and useless Tomb Raider natural rope, tube bumper, and exocage that reinforces the general lack of taste. Guess I better shut up before I get banned for keeping it too real.

    Is Albert's defender a bit over the top as far as looks go? Sure. Is it annoying with all-caps video titles? Sure, whatever. Stay on the trails? Yea, do that.

    Pretty much everyone on this forum is among the most highly privileged people in the world, so perhaps get off your high horse. Besides, Defenders are not quite as special on this side of the pond as they are over in the colonies... the ones with exocages are usually the ones that don't have a single straight body panel left.

    [EDIT] Great video, it's the best one yet!

    Great video! Thank you for sharing your adventure with us.

    Not sure why the hate? I saw nothing that would justify the rant about One Life, Live It, rich people, lame villagers. Awesome that you are living a life where you can afford to do something like this. I wish you continued blessings to keep doing this!

    Yep, cool video and enjoyed it...like all the others you have done. The 110's looked great. I actually remember driving one of those roads I am pretty sure in 1992 in a military convoy as my unit was sent from Croatia to Sarajevo to reopen the airport. Always thought it was a truly spectacular area. I think someone put on their angry wig before posting above, but life's to short to bother with that sort. I look forward to seeing more videos in the future!
