    During last week Rico and Richard did a good job convincing me to join this outing.
    For some reason to my own embarrasment I did not really feel like making the effort...then I decided to get new TKC's for the Adv and all of a sudden the show was on!
    Thanks guys, I would have missed a lot if i did not do this trip! Here's a few pics as we trotted along...!


    Richard, Harald, Stephen and Rico ready to roll early Saturday morning!


    First stop was in Okahandja where we had a hearty breakfast...


    Richard getting last minutes instructions from the support crew


    Jacques patiently waiting for his Dagwood Laughing


    Waiting up at the first intersection for the day


    Everyone happy to have found their gravel legs again


    Richard taking the plunge


    Showing off his clean bike...it did not last long though...!

    I have completed the Video of the trip, if you are interested I can give it to you guys either as .avi for smart TVs (the ones that can play from a USB drive) or as a DVD (you must just supply the DVD)

    I have a bit of problems loading it onto YouTube because of size and length, but am still working on that one.
