En Gerrit is 'n ongelooflike ou. Baie positief en niks kan hom onder kry nie.

Does not need the Leatt neck brace with that pre-filter  :imaposer: I believe was in the mid 40's today - he should wet that thing so it acts as a radiator.  :peepwall:

So this morning I got woken up at about 4am by the sounds of a hyena.   Yes we were all sleeping outside. And that kept me awake for a while.

The route today from Palmwag to Opuwo was spectacular.   Indeed it was a bit shorter (260 odd kms ) but still a beautifull piece of road.

I myself suffered 2 punctures on my front wheel.

Tonight we are camping in Opuwo and I believe tomorrow we will head to Epupa.
This will put us out of signal for the next couple of days, so we will send photos again when we are back in reception area.
Focus on the journey, not the destination.
