On January 17th Lenore and Gerry will set off past the Great Pyramid of Giza in Cairo on the most ambitious journey of their lives.  Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa.  The continent from top to bottom. 12,000 kilometres.  On bicycles. Camping.

We can’t predict to what degree time, energy and technology will impact what emerges in this blog.  We can definitely commit to keeping it interesting.

      6 out of 10 – not bad – did you leave a souvenir paddle in any of them?

    How incredibly exciting! I will look forward to vicariously following along in your adventure. I can’t even begin to imagine the beauty that will surround you on this journey. How many are in the group that bike along with you? Tenting along the way will be an adventure on it’s own. Be safe.

    We’re having the worst snowstorm in a century here while you guys sweat on a saddle.
    However, so far so good = keep it that way
