To clarify The Wife The X The Kid The wife Ive had for years, getting a bit long in the tooth already. The kid, not so long. The X, two weeks, this was going to be our introductory ride, 9000km through South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. And yes, I know it should be pronounced cross and not ex, but The Wife, the Cross and the Kid would make no sense, now would it? Lets get started. Some orienteering, were over here. This is where I meet my family, Ive been on the X for a week already and have done 3000km following this route around South Africa.
