The lot of them have been stationary for a while now and it's only 60kms in... punctures perhaps?

If you haven't tried it appears one can also download the track from the live map on quest trueadventure website once they're done for the day.

Here's how:
1. Click on the green marker depicting current position
2. This opens a tab towards the top left of the map titled "View track"
3. "View track" select a date and it gives you options to export to KML, GPX or SHP with a two other options to "Action replay" and "View tracks"

Got a quick phone call in and they regrouping in Uis. Also a refuel I imagine.

THROTTLE says everyone slept in tents, except for the adventurous few... says it was unusually cold last night and overcast. Had to sleep with a few layers on. Serves him right for not sleeping in a tent.

Heading for Palmwag for the night.

As Namibie is my favourite place I decided to do this exact route next year.
I am tracking their route carefully on Basecamp and will post the gps track here after the event.

So lekker, just following this is giving me such an itch to scratch.. I think a nam tour is on the cards sooner than I anticipated.

Go Nismark and Karookid representing the Quarriors.. ROOTING for you.

Any idea the challenges they have to complete? Least I undertook that they'll be "evaluated" doing stuff meaning a forced obstacle or something I guess.
I was thinking organisers may do stuff to bikes overnight but that could be very dangerous especially if isn't the obvious type stuff.

Scrat, Kamanya and Angus Welch are also Quarriors, though they may not all know it. We have a disproportionate interest in the Quest, and a disappointment from the outset as they can't all win. But to take part must be prize enough.
