HI Guys,
No route today unless you want a map from the bar to my room to the pool.

Hi Guys,
My route for the last couple of days. Today one month ago I left JHB.

When I left Yaounde I realised that my job on the valve clearances wasn’t quite up to BMW spec. The engine was so noisy that over all the traffic and hooting I could hear the engine cluncking away! I pulled up to a…

The roads entering Cameroon, if you can call them that, were an absolute mess. The 30km of rutted mud tracks from Ekong to Etu took us 3 hours and this was the dry season. It would have been completely impassable in the wet. The road improved marginally as we continued to Bamenda in the western…
