The team had a great evening last night and some of the younger group pushed the limit a bit - nevertheless everyone was up at a reasonable time but not ahead of the GECOTRANS “couriers” who arrived in the early hours of the morning. Thanks again to Suzette, Malcolm, Martin and most of all Kerry and the Gecotrans team for making this happen.
What a fantastic sunrise over Lake Meru. We all had breakfast (at different times) - sorted out our laundry and washed gear and then under Mike Puzey’s watchful eye, the team worked through the bikes changing out fuel pumps, cleaning filters and Mike replaced Mark’s clutch plates ready for the next challenge!!! Mark spent most of his day on his e-mails and attending to his day job as he does, however he did pop-out from time to time to attend Mike’s lectures on bike maintenance and to assist with managing issues requiring some intervention!!!
The team also found time to do some jet-skiing and spend a bit of time in the sun - so a good recharge day and everyone is ready to get on the road again.
We all owe the Pwetu Lodge team a big thank you for all the assistance and hospitality afforded the team and if anyone wants to visit a beautiful setting in a wild part of Africa this is definitely worth a visit. Also another thankyou to John and his team and Didi and the MD team for all the work and assistance to get us through the challenges post day 14 and day 15.
Tomorrow is a 330km haul and overnight in Lubumbashi which everyone is looking forward to.
