Well done!

I think I've read this one now for the 3rd time (as your other reports). You should really consider publishing all of your various adventures together in book [or ebook] format - you are way to humble... This is hardcore man. I rate it on par if not better than Long Way Round and Long Way Down

Best of luck to you and your mates with your future en devours and thank you for sharing

Thanks for an excellent RR! I love the way you interact with the people of Angola. The "doodsakker" stretch was gripping.

There is a Message in this RR. A smile on one's Face and a Positive Attitude can transform any situation and Life in general. It is very difficult for a normal Human Being to not engage with a person who has  a smile on his face and Humanity in his Heart. It is a hard fact that us Saffers should take to Heart, not only on our Travels but also within our own Country.

Just finished reading this one again ... and still as humbled by the achievements you guys reached as i was the first time. It's still a stunningly well compiled RR.

Thanks for sharing.

I know my missus is peeved with me for reading the entire thread this evening.  It was worth it.  A mortal dreaming.

No need to feel guilty. I was in the office at 05h30 today already, having a lot of work to get done this week. 2h20 ago I stumbled onto this thread when I glanced at WD and I just could not stop reading. Now I'm going to have to work 2 hours later tonight to make up for it, but was worth every minute.
