Got up reasonaly early had all good intentions of leaving early to give me plenty of time to suss everything out and if need be come back here. Ended up getting chatting to a fella biker a German guy named Deitmar he wasnt riding this time as he had a stroke and wasnt up to it (hope that clutch hand comes good Deitmar) Eventually left and rode the 70 odd k's to Sesriem ansd pulled into the servo, gassed up and talked to the young bloke and said ill go check out one of the lodges and if I have no luck ill be back to camp it in their camping ground. Rode over to Sossulsvlei Lodge not expecting any vacancies as on the blogs I had read people were booking 6 months in advance and it was always busy. Well not today turns out they have one room left got to love my luck hey but can only stay the two nights as its fully booked after that, well that fits my plans perfectly ill leave Sunday and head back towards Winhoek gives me two days to ride back there. It a fair way back there about 360 k' and if the roads are anything like that c14 it would be a massive massive day to do it in one hit, look im sure you could if you were on one of those group tours they probably laugh at me for the distance im travelling each day but my neck and back has been giving me a bit of grief lately and its starting to hurt after only about 20 minutes on the bike so going all day is painfull hard work especially when it was on a road like yesterday where you have to concentrate fully. Im not here to run myself into the ground. Hung around for awhile in my room and walked around the lodge its quite nice ended up in the pool for a swim then went over to the adventure side of it and book tomorrows ride into the dunes and while I was there decided to jump in an aeroplane and do the fly over this afternoon. So relaxed around the pool then went and got my camera gear organised and headed over to the office and waited with the others till the pilot turned up and we were off to the airport 5 minutes away. Ok its not and airport its a gravel road he takes off from but it the thought that counts. Was a very rough start to the flight but it soon levelled out and was really nice to see all the different landscape from above it really is quite specatacular from up there. Was a 40 minute flight so took in alot of the scenary from around the area, fortuantly me being the only single i was in the front seat again which always seems to work out ok though I wouldnt of minded having to sit next to the German chikkibabe behind me either. l suppose I could of punched her boyfriend out but everyone is on holidays and in a good mood so I let it slide. Got back and relaxed and basically it was 7ish so headed over to the restaraunt for dinner pretty nice spread dont ask me how much it cost ill find out when they give me the bill and maybe I wont even look then. So back in my room fairly early thought about having a few beers but got to get up at 5:30 am to go on this tour so might give it a rest, softy i know. Im just trying to save energy for when I do my sprint up the dune tomorrow its only 340 feet the hightest in the world. Hey Ive lashed out on this expensive place maybe ill just get a group of locals to carry me up the top and time how long it takes them.
