Day 1 – I will I can I shall

A year ago I received the shuttering news that my life was in for a huge change. Cancer. The tumor spread to different parts of my body.

A year later. I am on my first weekend ride with Philip and Marietjie. Tonight the bush is still filled with noises. Last night a pod of hippos moved from the one waterhole to the one a hundred meters or so from our tents. The ride was a bit taxing but wow! I can ride again! I slept in my tent again. Like in the past we sat until late at our camp fire (photographs follow)

God is good!

Ronel, manager at Phelwana, brought us firewood. I know her for many years. She has a heart of gold.

That was the last opportunity for us to camp at Phelwana. The management decided to build a conference centre at that spot.
