heh :) I'm just chilling in Swakopmund for Christmas and the new year. I'm heading into Windhoek on the 3rd for a service on the 6th then north to Outjo and then Etosha. Afterwards I reckon I will head head to Ondangwa and then east on the C45 to the Caprivi. My visa expires on the 21st January so I need to be in Botswana by then. I need to get a move on! :)

Thanks man :) I'm driving 350 km's to Windhoek tomorrow via the C28. Looks like some real nice mountain passes. Should be a great drive. Looking forward to getting on the road again.

As a side note I gave another lesson to a fellow traveller yesterday. Its the second lesson I've given on this trip. Hopefully two new converts into the world of motorbiking and the CTX 200 is the perfect bike to learn on.

Jim 40kms before Windhoek on the righthandside is an old German house/fort.
Do yourself a favour and go walk through it.

Beautiful building. :thumleft:

I'm alive  :biggrin: Sorry for the delay. Its been a busy week and my laptop's been playing up (now fine though). Combine that with too much socialising and terrible internet and I just haven't been able to get the ride report updated.

Rest assured I am working on it now  :thumleft:

Thanks for all your concern though :) It is appreciated!

What a relief that all is okay.  :)  We were getting concerned that suddenly there were no updates.
Presumably the further you travel into dark Africa we will have to be patient with the regular updates.
