THanks for all the positive comment, we are very fortunate to have had no problems. It was an amazing trip and we appreciate everyone
s comments on the blog, even though we couldn't reply to them. As soon as we've settled in and caught up on work we'll post a proper RR.

The next chapter is a surprise..  :pot: The bikes are on their way to Cpt on a ship. Johan Badenhorst of the Voetspore team offered for us to load them in his containers with the Amaroks. THat was very generous of him.

I apologise to all the people I've promised an RR. Haven't forgotten yet!
