Stuck in the same place, again (day 113)

I am here: 46 56.213 N 102 40.35 E at 1642m as of 15/08/2013 08:54 BST http://maps.google.com/maps?q=loc:46.9369,102.6725

Almost exactly 24 hours after being stuck here before, we are back at the same spot building a rock road again. Hurrah for soft (near liquid) mud and no 4x4 drive on the truck.

We'd probably have avoided being stuck if we hadn't tried to help a local Russian Minivan which had got stuck (they're 4x4, but the driver didn't plan his river crossing and got stuck), which eventually was unstuck using brute force and ignorance.
