Boy was I pleased to have had the 4x4 to load the bike onto the next day, as I'd come down with a really hard hitting cold, from too much cold air and change of temperatures over the last few weeks of being out and about. Temperatures had ranged from -3 deg C to 20 deg C in one day at times. I set off back to Durban to recover.

Of course from then on I had to recover before I could get back onto the bike and head back down to Cape Town. The initial plans had all changed; I was initially going to have gone down to Port Elizabeth in Rob's car with the bike on the trailer and then riden the bike from there, some 700km to Cape Town. Now, by going back to Durban with the bike on the 4x4, I had ended up with a much longer 1700km to ride to Cape Town.

However before getting back on the bike I had to get rid of my cold. After a few days of lying in bed, it didn't improve so I flew back to Cape Town carried on with my life, and then 2 weeks later once strong, flew back to Durban and carried on with the bike trip.

These pictures are me getting packed up and ready to drive from Paul Roux back to Durban.
