Your story read like the classical outcome of what happens to people with good parenting skills - and enough bikes in the family  :thumleft:

Awesome story and enjoyed reading it much.

Without a doubt THE RR of the last 12 months ... I am absolutely amazed at the conditions this has thrown at the 3 of you, well done indeed!

Thanks for sharing this stunning ride!

A stupendous effort  - not only by the 3 of you in embracing the vicissitudes of the journey itself, but in the commitment, by you, Wildside, in documenting it in such  a positive tone. Reading it from a drought-ravaged eastern cape, seeing that amount of run-off and mud is a kind of cognitive dissonance.
