3 days to go! Nerves, excitement and looking forward…

With only 3 days to go before departure I am sitting and waiting for the time to pass. Its a funny feeling leaving your loved ones and friends behind. Everybody is so into the trip, it feels as if it is everybody’s trip and that everyone should be coming along.

The other part of it is that there are so many strangers showing interrest. The emails, well wishes etc has been overwhelming. Jay from jamminglobal.com phoned me last night and told me that “no matter how tough it gets just remember that there are so many poeple who are dreaming of what you are doing, on those days you ride for them.” I liked that idea. I think of all the guys I followed on the web and the guys that gave me advise and with a drop of a hat was prepared to answer any question I had.

I think as a biker you have the responsibility to give back what the other overlanders/ adventure bikers gave me by keeping the blog updated and making sure the info isnt half arse.

So I am looking forward to blogging as much as possible. I will also be taking alot of videos and putting them on the blog for everybody to feel as much as possible a part of this trip.

Just to give some off you an idea of how crazy it is. I have not even started yet and my blog has been read in 50 different countries around the world.

I am leaving Saterday morning at 8am. I have 2 friends riding up with me from SA up until northern Namibia. Let me introduce them.
