To infinity… AND BEYOND!

Also, thank you all so much for following me thus far on this adventure. Everyone knows that the London to Cape Town world cup rally finishes tomorrow. But that is only the beginning for me and dad. Because we are planning on driving back north! Why? you might ask? Well, because we; A) are in africa, B) have a car in africa, and C) want to see more of africa.

So, we have a very vague plan of having a few days off in Capetown, seeing some good friends outside of Jo-burg, then going back north, maybe Botswana, then up to Gurun-gurun crater and the Serengeti and hopefully some gorillas and most likely finishing in Mombasa, Kenya to ship our car back home.

And this all means that i will continue to update this blog on our continued adventures as often as possible about what we are doing, and if i get arrested in the future (touch wood) and much of the same as what i have done so far. I hope you will all have the continued support and interest to continue checking and reading throughout Febuary and most likely the beginning of March. So to my friends back home in brissy, i still don’t have a solid return date yet but i will keep you informed 😀

    How come those plans are no surprise Max and James! I am so glad things have gone so well for you. Of course I will continue to follow you. Two more sleeps before I start my own adventure.

    I will just add my small contribution to the WELL DONE comments.
    Heeping the “VINTAGE” tradition alive relies on THE FEW such as yourselves.

    We love you guys and are so proud of you. Amazing and done with such humour in your news. Perhaps this is your calling James and you should just keep writing. Max you are a hero insisting that you take Penny alongside the Hilux and modern cars…a great achievement and well done to you both. An awesome team.

    XXXXX Liz, David, Ellie and Grace. XXXXX

    1. I think adventuring and writing as an extra may be James’ calling… can’t see him writing unless he is pushing the limit somehow!
