Damara, how/where did you carry the extra 25l fuel? I only see the 5l..

We carried 10lt on each side in the holster system. We used plastic 10lt jerry cans. Cheap as chips and we could leave them with locals

Yes, I'm afraid the pictures are disappearing again.

D - did you put all your pictures in one album, the one you made public? If so, check again if it still is public.

Sorry guys, seems Google photos works randomly, even without me changing anything.  Will upload all pics to Flickr and update my post when done.

Are you sure you added them to the shared album? Just open the album and see if you can see them there.

And one more thing that may help - open your original post, delete the photos you posted and repost them again - maybe the link has changed after you shared them. Google photos are confusing, but seemed to work fine on my prior reports.

Flickr will definitely give you much more storage, but it also adds text to the picture (like 'posted by Flickr') and such, that has to be deleted manually (unless you don't mind it there).

Edit: Also, Flickr is sharing website and is often blocked by company firewall - for example TVB cannot see them on Gough Island.

Maybe just repost the photos (after they are all in Shared Album and that album is set to Public in sharing option) and we can check quickly again.

Have a look below, in the Altrider holster we had 2 x 10L plastic cans.  As you saw the 5L was in a Desert Fox in front of the headlight.  Make sure to disconnect the headlight if you carry fuel like that, otherwise you will melt your cover.



 :thumleft: Was it enough by plenty! 

Still no pics on my side, only first one and vids..

Fuel calcs were spot on, hit our first refuelling spot after Ruacana (Tombua) with a couple of liters spare.

P.S.  Can you guys see all the pics now?  Redid the Album with Xpat's suggestions.

I see all photos except the one after paragraph starting with ‘Hit the sacks...’

Looks to me like you forgot to put the link in.

Please test it by right clicking on a photo, click ‘copy image address’ and post the address in new window. If it comes up, the link works.

Thanks Xpat - Just a spacing issue, no pic meant to be there.  Had a couple of my mates test and it works, so think we got it sorted, thanks for the advice!  I'll write Day 1's report tonight.

There was a picture there before and I see now that you added it (the one where you have all your stuff on the grass with bikes and you two standing behind. The thing is - it doesn't work, while all the other do work. So whichever way you have added it there, that is the way not to go  ;)

But all the other pictures work, so whichever way you got those working, is the right way to go. I know it's a schlep, but once you find your way around it it will become second nature.

Anyway - let's get going with the report now :bounce:
