Hi Wayne,

Are you still in Underberg. We were there a couple of months ago on a ride and stayed at The Shed.

Need to come up again and do some more riding in the area.

Cheers,

Hello Andy,
Nope, we sold up in 2015. Been travelling and living in an Iveco Daily 4x4 camper since then.

Hello Mike,

We're actually not in SA at the moment....long story...
We were up in east africa,  planned on touring around there for two to three years. After eight months (Moz, Tan, Uganda, Rwanda, Malawi) my wife's son called and told us he was getting married - he lives in the US!

So we picked up the pace a little and made our way back to SA (via Zam, Zim and Bots), stored the truck / our only home at a friend's place and, in March before this virus was even a concern,  we flew to Florida. Wedding done we are now stuck here!

We have our return tickets and airline is ready to fly...but SA has closed their airports as you know. A bit frustrating but at least we are comfortably accommodated with son and his new wife - no ways that we could have afforded to pay accommodation with our rather pathetic rand !!
