    Hey Scott, I think I may know them, Jane, a delightful woman who bakes a delicious mango upside down cake and teaches ballroom dancing in the Caprivi, her husband a strange fellow who commutes through the trees and spends selfless hours imparting his vast knowledge of ropes and knot tying skills with the gentleman of Divindu.

    Wow - that will be one cool trip. Since watching Charlie and Ewan's DVD's during the cold winter (with NO riding), I was very impressed by the terrain and people in Africa. Parts of Europe through Russia / Mongolia also looked cool. But I want to hit Africa now for sure as it is one place I haven't set foot in!

    Looking forward to the RR and pics (as is everyone else on here, I'm sure!) :lurk

    How many people are going and what bikes are you riding? How long is the trip? Looking forward to get all the info, "intro's" of the riders / bikes and potential route... I am sure all my questions will be answered in due time!

    All the best on your journey!
