    Wow! What a ride! I had to take several breaks just to settle down after reading certain sections, like the rocks, did I say rocks? And the ride along the ocean - whew! Good Job Mates.

    Truly amazing. The more I read about other people's experiences in Africa the more I am drawn there. I hope one day to be able to experience it by motorcycle

    Thank you for this amazingly personal, informative, and at times suspenseful story. What an eye opener, in so many ways.

    We're researching the idea of moving to southern Africa, so what better way to whet my appetite than to read back through all of Fred's RRs??? This one is my favorite RR ever.

    My all-time favorite ride report and the one I always send my friends to get them hooked on ADV.

    Just remarkable stuff.

    This was the first RR I ever read on ADV. I had just bought a Dakar like Michnus was riding, and daydreamed all winter reading this until I could ride it!

    I saw it pop back up and had to read it again!
