I may have to pick up that book, Supernaut. That sounds like an amazing read. My dad and I want to ride across the length of southern Africa, From Durban SA to somewhere like Luderitz, Namibia or possibly through Windhoek over to Walvis Bay. Most likely we'd fly into cape town then ride the South African southern coast up to Durban. That road is by far one of the most breathtaking scenic drives I've ever seen. Its nothing compared to what these folks have done, but it still should be an amazing ride.
