    Totally, totally awesome. Really deep and wide and long and beautiful. My lady and I want out of the US BAD. We had talked about Europe, now I'm thinking Africa. Many thanks.

    Indeed, thanks for the bump... How the hell did I miss this back when it was posted? Sheesh.

    Wonderful report, and obviously, wonderful country. Thank you.

    Thanks for letting us live vicariously through such an epic trip by detailing it so well.

    Many go through life regretting never trying to do exactly what you just did. I'm sure you've inspired more to try.

    Reading this report for the 2nd time and it just gets better and better.

    It was deep, just how I like it, especially when this is involved.:evil

    Wow. This is now tied with

    as all time favorite....fantastic. Cannot believe the fantastically stupid skid plate mounting of the GS...I'll keep that in mind.

    Question: No worries about scorpions or puff adders when sleeping out on a flat tarp?

    P.S. May actually be in Namibia this July...who wants to swap use of a bike in Florida for use of a bike in Windhoek?
