Shew! Stunning!

Your story just whets the appetite. One day, one day! Sooner than later hopefully.

I met up with Bakkes and Kallie at Felix's camp on my Richtersveld trip. They were excited about the trip. Bakkes is an interesting chap, he is an expert ear chewer.

SGB - fantastic experience I am sure.

Thanks for the effort to put this RR together from start to finish in such a short period. It was a great "to the point", "I wanna do this to" read for us. Will certainly keep an eye on this for updates!!! :thumleft:.

Hi SGB,

Thank you for an insightful and interesting RR. 
It takes time to do this and i value your input...
You mentioned that a member of your party was looking for "closure" and it certainly got me thinking, maybe a good excuse for me to go snoop around up there a bit as well. :thumleft:

Who did you make arrangements with, re- Medical evacuation if you had needed it.
Also nice to see the "Boer maak a plan" aspect of this trip...... No Bmw on Call up there...... Common sense has to prevail.

Thanks again.  :thumleft:

SGB, having read your report this morning and the story and people fresh in my mind, i was surprised to come across one of your fellow travelers this afternoon.

The latest copy of Getaway magazine (June 2010) has an interesting interview with Johan Bakkes on his new book called "To Hell and Gone".
I am assuming this is the same character, as a picture can tell a thousand words and the one in the mag has a good tale to tell.
