Day 88 and the night before I leave. My bike is in its box, ready to fly; my house is littered with bits and pieces, ready to be packed. It’s too late to think of things I’ve forgotten – or to wish that I’d ridden more long distances.
Section 7 of the TDA is 10 days of riding and a mere 1542 kms. What was I drinking that night in Cairo??
But it is what it is and time to remember to enjoy it all…we start with 4 days in a lovely hotel at Vic Falls which won’t exactly be a hardship!
I’ve made space for my camera; it would have been impossible to go without it, so I’ll be taking pictures at least on our stops. If I have energy, time and internet connection all at the same time I’ll keep in touch…maybe persuade Andy to string some words together too.
I fly back from Windhoek on 23 April.
Bernie – I was thinking – you’ve got a tandem and you’ve been wonderfully enthusiastic about Andy’s ride all along. He’s going to be on his own again after Windhoek…why don’t you take the tandem to Windhoek and the two of you can finish the ride to Capetown together??
On second thoughts, it might not do your friendship any good at all…
