A ride like this makes newbies like me so chuffed to have gotten involved in this sport! Thank you for inspiring us to one day have similar adventures, though admittedly I doubt they will be THIS awesome! Fanbloodytastic.

 8) Incredible adventure... I can't wait for the rest of it... excellent writing too  8)

Awesome stuff guys!!
When in doubt, Gas It! It may not solve the problem, but it WILL end the suspense!

I did this route back in 2003 but in the opposite direction in a Landrover and have to admit that the "doods akker" was scary sh!t.  All I can say is RESPECT - as us, I don't know if you guys knew what to expect but looking back now it was an awsome part of the trip.

Having done most of Southern Africa by 4x4 I still rate Angola as my best trip ever.

Ai jai jai

I can just see LostDog - with a glint in his eye

Man, that looks lekker !!!!

Plottie - these guys are hard-core!
My mates have said I better tone things down a bit, else nobody will want to ride with me again. Thinking of taking their advice for a while.

THIS REPORT IS THE SHIT!


HI-Jack, Lost Dog and Plottie I'm in  ;)

My Mates ICM and Co. are not interested. :(

Kark man ... but a strom aint going to survive a trip like this ....would need a DR650 or similar plus time off work ....

It's late Monday already, and the world is waiting........
