I've been traveling on the road since the beginning of 2010 and just recently returned home. I can't tell you how nice it is to be home and sleeping in my own bed. Throughout my constant travel with recent adventures on three different continents, all creating some very intense situations, the landslide in Pakistan earlier this winter is one of those epic moments encountered along the way and is still effecting thousands of people.
This is the last of the videos that we produced from the expedition and it revisits the landslide that is still a major problem in the Hunza Region of Pakistan. Just a few weeks ago the water breeched the top of the debris and is slowly eroding the earthen dam away. The Karakoram Highway will be blocked for was has been months and possibly could be years, derailing massive efforts by the Chinese to develop this highway with large scale infrastructure improvements currently underway. For more current information on this epic disaster please log onto Dave's Blog and check out the current images of the new earthen dam. There is additional information available at the Pamir Times' website with most days providing coverage of the disaster and it's effects on the thousands of residents in this area.
