Zimbabwe May 2012
« on: July 09, 2012, 07:11:24 pm »
My first attempt at this, I hope that the report (part 1) is attached!
Will post the other parts once I've figured this out, if I figure this out.

All my attachments (parts 1 to 9) of this report are now in below (so don't just open the 1st one and think that's it!  :)

Thanks

Wow, Lovely route!

That must have taken a bit of time doing the homework!
I wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost

Hi Kamanya, yes many many nights (and some days, but don't tell the boss!) of planning and flying Google Earth!

WOW, I'm humbled ... and embarrased to say that I have always written Zim off as not worthy of my traveling through it ... but thanks to you 3 I have been enlightened.

Keep them coming !

It is great, a feeling of the old wild Africa I saw in the movies and dreamt about a a lightie. I'm just sorry I never started exploring it years ago, it's got expensive.
