    ... tried and tested - full marks from mwah and what a relief to have a portable 'flushing' Loo!! TK , aka CopK, McGyver and FOMO, for those who followed my previous 3 blogs, will be wholly in charge of our supply of wine/alcohol, water, fuel & solar power once we head into CK.

    ... I didn’t do too bad a job to be honest.

    We were on the road by 9 after saying our goodbyes to the owner and to the guys from Switzerland with the pimped up VW Transporter. Off we went, aiming to make tracks. Soon we were waking hello and goodbye to George, then Wilderness, then Sedgefield, then Knysna, and onto Plettenberg Bay. Hello and goodbye, enjoying the scenery along the way.
