A road too far in Georgia?
On the night of the 8th of May after covering only 45km in three hours we debated if we should continue, however after sitting round a fire with two bottles of wine we opted to go on. Another group meeting in the morning confirmed the decision. Possibly a mistake!
On the morning of the 9th of May after a few kilometers the road disintegrated into a muddy boulder strewn track and Womble, K-Nine and Kon-Tiki all had to be towed by Mog or Bigfoot. Kon-Tiki also suffered a double puncture.
We covered only 10km in 5 hours.
However after Akhmeta the road improved and we eventually "camped" on the main road in Telavi. After a fruitless search for a recommended restaurant we ended up in the "Lucky Strike" cafe (a fine meal with wine for $5.00 a head!).
