Update on the Amazon Couple & Their Unimog
The couple had driven over hundreds of identical bridges during their travels, but although this one looked secure it turned out it was termite ridden and severely weakened on the inside. The picture on the right is how the Unimog looked once it was on its feet again.
Once back in Manaus the mog went to a Mercedes workshop there and has been undergoing repair work since. After a few problems Bruce was tempted to send the Unimog back to us here to have work completed but unfortunately shipping costs proved too expensive.
After completing the most essential work the Unimog will be fit for driving away and continuing on its travels down to Venezuela. It will return to the UK at a later date for full repairs.
