I still have pages 4 to 6 to read but already do you have me hooked. Great report and fantastic adventure you've had. Been dreaming about doing something like this for a long time but have given up already, now you are starting to make me think again.

Ag sorry okes I now you have been waiting a long time, its just the time zones are screwing with me not to mention Im in the middle of a sales process of the mining company I work for.  ::) I know its not really a real/acceptable excuse, but in the meantime I have recieved some more awesome pics to add to the story. I will post very soon and more regularly I promise! Please bear up with me.

Oh, BTW, I will be in Pretoria on the 1st of October to give the WD's a talk about Dos Sertoes, future plans and rally raid in general :mwink: at our new wild dog club house (Check Patman's thread). I hope to meet you all there if you have the time it would be great to have a beer or three with you and meet those of you I do not know. If any of you are seriously aspiring rally nuts like me, you should not miss it!  :deal:

I said the same on Patman's thread . . . 25 dawgs at R100pp can buy Mr and Mrs BlueBull some tickets to Slaapstad. I'm very keen to meet our hero, but I'd also understand if he's not too keen to catch another couple of flights for an additional 4 hours on what (I'm sure) is probably already a hectic trip . . .

Wowzers guys..Im stumped by your generosity! :hello2: Cape dawgs are just way cool! I would love to come to Cape Town, it was not in my schedule though, which is pretty tight as are the finances after this rally unfortunately. Let me reconsider and talk to Mrs. BB though.
