Water

Big thing is that you will have access to water potentially several times a day coming from the North. Three riders each carry 18-20L was over kill and contributed to the fatigue factor

Would need to go through my notes but you have Bilunia then water available at Lake Gregory (worth the detour) and then another few more wells before Kunna - Well 49 44 38 & 33 from memory. Also remember that when we got to the well we had a big drink and also aimed to camp there so we would have access to the water.

So when I do it again it will be with 3-4 bikes each carrying around 6L

We did it in July 2011 & it was like a freeway I think we would have passed 3-5 groups a day heading north and also passed groups camped up who would normally come over and have a chat - even scored some ice blocks off one family
