You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait, the grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas. Enthusiasts are fighters. They have fortitude. They have staying qualities. Enthusiasm is at the bottom of all progress. With it, there is accomplishment. Without it, there are only alibis.

That's it! Actually, halfway between the two. It's called Langstrand, and was home for us for 2 days while we explored the area. Here is a pic when we arrived... (much calmer!) The quads (on the trailer) were for playing in the Dunes..

Id say Southern Namibia. Road does not look familiar but those look like the mountains around the Fish River Canyon. The western side that is. If I had to name a road it would be D459 from Goageb to Rosh Pinah or D463 in the same direction.
