Jolandie Rust is doing a proper preparation for her big ride when she is going to circumnavigate Africa next year.
Looking at the photographs I had to smile. How true the saying: There is no gain without pain. Jolandie took the hammering with a smile.
We came from the west towards the Kubu track and that included a bit of bundu bashing through deep sand.
Our bundu bashing tracks through the bush.
Paddling through the deep sand. On a fully-laden bike it is nearly impossible to stand upright in the sand.
We stopped. I asked Jolandie whether she was still fine, and then her foot slipped. At least that was her version of the crash. 🙂
We had to carry all our water. After the sand at the vet gate we asked this guy for a bit of water. he thought we were mad.
At the end of a long and hard riding day. We had to find a dry spot on the pans to park our bikes.
I had an upset stomach and skipped the bully beef with sweet corn, rather had a glass of red wine instead. It helped.
The damage after crash no 4 on Saturday.
I had my first crash on Sunday. It hurt (my ego!)
Resting in the shade on a dirty parking spot. We were even more dirty.
Teramycin for animals is a wonder cure when one is travelling in Africa. You can drink it as antibiotics and put it on open wounds. Yolandie treats her injury which became a bit infected after all the dirt.
