Seems I have a synch problem, this should have been included earlier ... herewith some DJI photos of the FRL for Oom ChrisL.






1978. It's 6am, mid winter...two up on a XL 185S ... off to my first casino ever with all of R40 and we've got a full tank of fuel, so enough to get there we reckon.... that's determination...

Canyon Village is right next door to Canyon Lodge where we were 2 years ago, it's a nice place and I'll have some sunrise drone footage soon.


I am in the 2nd last one so no one is really disturbed the next morning at 7 when I fly the drone ... this is the first lodge I see with a "No Drones" sign at the door. I ask for and get the OK for a 10min flight.


Organic transport.

Day 20 is a sad day as it sinks in that that's it for 2018. It's been an excellent trip, no tyre dramas like last year, no issues at all. The D324 to the C10 and ultimately the B1 is smooth and quiet.





Some locals wish me well on my way home. Thanks guys.



This is no way to treat a '58 Chevy ...




Some plugs, oil, tappet cover and ... na, maybe not ...





Last bit of Nam gravel.


The border is quick and painless. I thought that I'd stay over in Springbok but get there at 2pm, far too early so keep going ...



... not before I take 4 departure photos.





Clanwilliam looks healthy indeed.


This trip was 6604km, it was the best we have done by far and I really hope it has inspired at least one person to throw his shit on his bike and go. Thanks for riding along.

NamibiŽ is werklik Ďn pragtige land en jy het hom mooi afgeneem Ian. Ek sou watwou gee om 2 weke daar te gaan ry. Is daar baie ander mense met hommeltuie daar? Pla dit nie in die nasionale parke nie?

Ek onthou nog toe Sesriem kampterrein slegs 10 kampplekke onder die kameeldoringbome gehad het. Ek was dikwels een van slegs 2 of 3 ander groepe daar gewees. Lyk asof die ganse NamibiŽ nou erg gekommersiŽliseer geraak het. Dis jammer.

Hi Dors, nee wat, ek het geen ander hommeltuie (mooi beskrywing daai)  gesien nie, kon wees maar jy hoor hom lank voor jy hom sien. Ek verwag wel dat daar meer negative reaksie teenoor die goed gaan wees in die toekoms omdat hulle so geraas maak. Maar dis 'n duidelikke verbettering in verband met video opneem.

Ek werk nou op die laaste video vir die toer.

Nice. hell as i said when i left, i am still so bloody disappointed that i could not finish the trip together, Just looking at the footage of the FRC makes a "Ous" heart wish that i dident turn away, but yip it was a tough decision i made. In truth i almost turned around twice to go to the lodge and get you there buddy. But ja i new that would be foolish. Once again great RR.  ;D ;D :ricky: :ricky:

Dankie Ian, ek het al gedink dit sal lekker wees om die hommeltuig op 'n rit saam te neem maar dis nogal baie goeters om saam te dra.  Watter model het jy?  Hy moet seker baie klein wees om op so 'n lang rit saam te vat.

Ek het gewag vir die Mavic Air omdat hy so klein is. Werk regtig goed vir Ďn Top Box hommeltuigie.  :thumleft:
