    ... UK with a big lead. Sue also found the time to write an amazing blog with tons of photos en route but, even more remarkably, this woman was EFI for the 6400 km stretch from Nairobi almost to Cape Town and only failed to complete 5 stages. Sue also won 3 sections and was the only racer other than Mike to win a stage on each of the 8 sections.

    ... a few days earlier before he had take off for an Etosha Safari. I had a long chat with Flo before I headed on out. I needed to find an ATM machine, and low and behold, as I was walking past the Ocean Basket restaurant...there was Mitch and Sue in the window seat. I joined them for dinner. After dinner, I walked with them back to Desert Sky Backpackers. I then hired a cab to take my back to my back packers place. December 1st: Today started off tense, as my airport ...
