Only in my dreams

I'm at a stage in life where I've come to realize I could not do a trip like that.I'll fool myself into thinking that"when I was younger maybe." Thanks for the effort.

What an adventure. Don't discount your story telling because you do it well.
I really appreciate the pictures because I know how hard it is to get myself to stop and take them, I'm sure you'd prefer to just ride too.
Your reports take so many people to places that they'll never see so intimately as you do.

Thanks.

What a Trip, thanks for sharing a good read and pics. Glad to hear that Zambia is not stuffed up like our northern neighbour. It sounds like you had no troubles with bikes with all the water and mud .Looking forward to reading some more of your reports
