I recall those segments of the track... we actually first arrived here at around 11pm at night after a couple of hours of waiting in traffic jams....it was indeed my most thrilling 4x4 ride ever, and had I not had confidence in the driver who was an experienced loading Hilux pilot/ustad, I would probably had a couple of heart attacks on the way.
BTW.... you guys (nn and Mir) deserved the bumps as you took an empty dala all the way to Kalam (and back!?) did not give a ride to any of the locals. Given the desperation of the people this was almost criminal in my books and the intrenal displacement of your organs is punishment well deserved! I had 10 passengers on the back of my rented Hilux (with 750kgs G-wire) and had no such bump stop issues at all
