I got up this morning very nervous and full of doubt over various elements of the trip. It differs from day to day, most days i am convident and eager to go, other days i am a ball of stress and confusion.
Confusion is a funny thing. During my planning stages, which was a couple of months, i made sure that all potential problems with either the bike or paperwork is solved. I made sure that my mind was at ease with whatever decision i made ie. replace rear shock or not, get second passport, take original registration doc with etc. Unfortunatly Murphy’s Law book of Confusion comes into play. 6 weeks to go and i am still wandering if i should replace a clutch, a shock etc.
Anyways be that as it may, i am leaving the 2nd March. I have no choice in the matter as i got my DRC visa today!!!!! But i have to exit the county by the first week in April so i dont have the luxury of stalling a few weeks.
I also dropped my application with the Poeples Republic Of Congo and can collect on thursday morning.
