What is your favourite memory or anecdote from the Serious Road Trip?There are many (meni) though the one that sticks in my mind is of a time when we were desperate to leave Sarajevo. We'd been stuck there for nearly 2 weeks due to continuous fighting on the airport road. On that day Tony decided to wait for a ceasefire right near the building which was the nearest shelter to the airport road. I was sitting in the cab of my truck reading and three guys were standing behind the truck in front, talking. After a while we heard a tank shell approaching really close. Instinctively, the three guys in front jumped under the truck in front, landing partly on top of each other. The shell landed dangerously close, but what I found hilarious was that when the guys knew that all was well they all exchanged dirty looks for jumping onto one another.
