Or

Or in a different country.

I have no idea where it is but it looks very much like the hills near Alicante, Spain. That said, as you used "Route", I suppose it might be US.

Ideally, I would watch the whole thing before posting but... It's Friday and I have beer to drink :D

I think you'll find that where he's driving there isn't a right or wrong side of the road.

Phone call

Wife: "Darling? You'd better be careful on the way home. I've just heard on the radio that there's a car going the wrong way down the motorway."

Elderly husband: "One car? There's DOZENS of them!"

"like somewhere in spain"

I'm being obtuse I guess, but it starts off saying "Castille y Leon -- wellcome to Avila"?

Do I earn a beer saying it's the Avila to Puerto de Castilla road?

(Paris, cos she's as clueless as me!)

closer

Roughly halfway between Oporto and Madrid if you've got a map,

I reckon its about here http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=piedrahita&sll=40.830437,-4.191284&sspn=0.692038,1.061554&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Piedrah%C3%ADta,+%C3%81vila,+Castille+and+Leon,+Spain&ll=40.25228,-5.688772&spn=0.043627,0.066347&t=h&z=14

Could be turning on to the N-110 out of Tornavacas ("turning cows"?) as its about 30 km from Piedrahita on the road to Avila

high-resolution stills are better

even though videos are good, I find high-res seq of pictures to be better. As the object falls, there will be little that will change in the scenery (in a dramatic way), so high-res stills would be a lot better. (even if you take a video, you will pause it to look at the scenery)

N110, I think

It's a bit of a give away from the street signs, although it might be another road around there. I'm having a beer in any case.

It's in El barco de Ávila, Castille and Leon, Spain

It's the road the AV-941 taking a right on to the N-110

Spain, for sure.

Hi, the second video was filmed (or photographed) in Spain, somewhere on a road between Ávila and Salamanca.

(http://maps.google.es/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=%C3%81vila&daddr=CL-510+to:40.955011,-5.675812&geocode=FSZebAIdXke4_ylTMMJ5evFADTEA5fNaB4cFBA%3BFcTFbgIdXuer_w%3B&hl=en&mra=dme&mrcr=0&mrsp=2&sz=11&via=1&sll=40.860564,-5.542603&sspn=0.308472,0.576782&ie=UTF8&ll=40.7899,-5.196533&spn=0.6176,1.153564&z=10)

Ok, what are you doing in Spain?

Think of your budget, man!

And close to the mountains where the paragliders fly? I thought the launch vehicle was an unmanned balloon?

<-- since you don't have a balloon icon

We have an Iberian bureau. Lester lives there.

Lester's place

First - can we all come and stay, and

Second - is he still fighting the extradition?

Lester lives in a cupboard?

Iberian bureau = spanish cupboard?

Is Lester really Harry Potter and living under the stairs.

I'm now very confused.

That's Spain

First one is in "El Barco de Avila", Castilla Y León

Second one seems to be the road between Avila and Salamanca (the N-501 maybe?), again Castilla y León
