Jealous of all of it

Very jealous. Even of the stuck bikes part.

Friend of mine on a 690 got stuck overnight in that area (somewhere). Serious mission to get the bike out!

This is me here in Kenya on a solo ride... I won't stop riding in riverbeds, but I'm a lot more cautious if they're wet!



Love Namibia. Give us more!

They say once you have visited Namibia it crawls and settles in the deepest part of your heart. How i long to go there and show my family this awesome land. for now we can only watch on the dvd and pictures from two previous trips, and the army.
Thank you to you and everybody els who share there experiences here, so that we can live it with you through your reports
Listen to song called "Suidwes" by Jezelle, it sums up what Namibia does to you!
I hope to be back there soon, unfortunately not on a bike, but aircon in the truck :thumleft: :peepwall: :pot:
Thanks for your nice report!

Sorry for the radio silence, work unexpectedly picked up so spending all waking moments trying to capitalise.  But will definitely get the next instalment out soon!

Dorsland dit is maar net in die riviere waar jy regtig van die pad af kan gaan. Andersins is dit net klippe. Daar is redelik wild lewe so die spore le nie vir lank daar nie.
