Hi Everyone!

Its been 4 months since I left SA. I wanted to give you all a quick update. I've been mainly catching up on work but I've also been going through all my footage and pictures. I'm going to begin editing it together soon with the idea to create a narrated mini (30 minute or so) documentary. I'll be sure to upload it to youtube and post it on here when its finished.

In the meantime here's all of my GPS traces I took on the trip collated on to one map. Its really cool to be able to visualise it in this way. It's really interesting zooming in on areas like the Messum crater in Namibia, the Makadikadi pans in Botswana and the Chimanimani mountains in Zimbabwe. All area's I was exploring without much idea of direction.



Click here for a higher resolution version. The different colours represent a different trace which is generally a different day. I've added the map to my first post too for new people who come across this thread.

You have gathered some wonderful memories there Jim. Did you find getting back into the routine again a bit of a challenge?

Very nice RR about a great trip.
You must stayed in every backpackers along your route in Southern Africa :biggrin:
It's nice to see these trips being done on small bikes. Which proves it again. A great trip is not about the bike at all.

I've been riding a CTX200 for a couple of years, guess it's time to do some touring of my own!  :)
