Rocky, travelling alone, wasn't a bit nerve wrecking what would happen if you fall or something?
Is there cellphone reception on those areas?

Your ride report is fantastic, I can't wait to go there !!!
Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans

The next morning I left Solitaire (I like that place) and headed on towards Swakopmund via Walvis . This was a pleasant ride , the weather was good and life was great I was in the zone .
