I'm in!

Gloabalpilot, where did you make make that training day video, looks like it is somewhere around Cave Creek? By the way, I spent 3 weeks in Capetown in around the V & A Waterfront, beautiful place.

Looking forward to the rest of the RR, truly an epic trip.

Seems like a great trip.
I am eagerly in for more as me & wife are heading that way for a much more sober trip this December.

I shot the video on a dirt road just North of Bartlett Lake, just east of Cave Creek. Beautiful place to ride with endless miles of trails!

Hope whoever hit the deck was ok never a nice thing to happen while on an adventure.
The rider ended up with six fractured vertebrae, internal bleeding, and a major concussion! It happened right in front of me. We had to use a sat phone to call the support vehicle. The rider was transported to a Namibian Hospital. Story to follow soon.

At that price, you couldn't have been too stressed over the economy...

Great vids.
I figured I could either invest the money back into the market and lose the majority of it, or I could blow it all on an adventure that was priceless...easy choice really.

That's a good point GP4; some dividends are non-monetary and will last a lifetime.
