PMOT - The Beginning

PMOT - The Beginning

Sunday, 29 Jul 2012

The saga of Paddy Murphy started on a rainy day in June 2010. Five lads drove on Irish roads, their equipment was non-professional and nobody knew nothing about HTML5 and video encoding at that time, even the source format was wmv (sic!) - ambitious but rubbish.

Driving Swiss Roads: S02E06 - Nufenen and Klausen Pass

Both mountain passes, Nufenen and Klausen, are favourites of Paddy. Even though these are two completely different to drive. Nufenen has a wide road, starts with long curves (from South) and has a few serpentines - a nice road for a VW Scirocco.

Driving Swiss Roads: S02E05 - Grimsel and Susten Pass

If someone asks Paddy Murphy what the best way from Bellinzona to Glarus would be, he will answer: Nufenen - Grimsel - Susten - Klausen. This episode shows two of those mountain roads. Grimsel Pass is like a motorway over the mountain, when you start in Gletsch, wide road, some serpentines and long, straight tracks.

Driving Swiss Roads: S02E04 - San Bernardino and St. Gotthard Pass

The similarity between the San Bernardino and St. Gotthard Passes is that both mountains can be circumvented using major traffic tunnels. But nobody in his right mind would prefer a tunnel over a mountain pass road! Some say there is an alien base hidden in plain sight on the summit of San Bernardino, but who believes in ghost stories these days anyway.
