Hey DD. Enjoyed reading your RR. Can relate to your descriptions of the vistas in Namibia. They are very different from any landscape I have ever seen. One has to go and see it to understand it. Did part of your route last week but in a 4x4 as I had to relocate my Mom to Windhoek. Keep it coming. :sunny: :thumbsup: :paw: :paw: :paw:

Only saw this RR now. Read the whole tread in one go only to find out that after 6 months its not complete.  ???

We can only hope DD will finish it soon since I see he is still active on the forum.

Inspiring stuff.

This is marvelous! Just finished reading this now...................DD if or when you finish this RR, it will definitely belong in the RR Roll of Honour.
I must congratulate you on your fantastic use of the English language, this story, the pictures, but most of all your ability to capture the moment and describe it so perfectly and with humour............. is awe inspiring.
I am going to invite you to join me on all my rides from now on, not only because I would like to meet you, but so that you can write the RR! :biggrin: :thumleft:

Hope everything's OK DD.
This has been a monumental RR - I know that compiling such an exhaustive RR is a huge undertaking, but can you PLEASE finish it sometime?

Just read. So glad I did not have to wait for installments, until now. Where's the rest ? I do not have your way with words DD, to so eloquently show my appreciation of this RR. Actually ,I just did , did'nt I ? (sincerely at least)

Bring it on !

Just found this now! I actually felt like am witnessing something great. As if something is gonna happens soon! Its like a movie or something. This is most definitely the best RR I have ever read. You let us have a piece of what you experienced. Not al of us can accomplish this, witch is sad. But you have me on the tip of my seat. (well Im in bed...but still).
 
Where ever you are dude, well done. This is inspiring

You are doing what I am dreaming of doing in my life, and I will do it. Im am still a young peduan! Cheers vir eers
