We have just returned from a six month self drive overland trip through East Africa. The trip was centered around most of the National Parks/Reserves in the countries/areas we travelled to.
We ran a blog site during the trip and any members who would like to read the blog may do so on http://www.gsin2africa.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. If during the course of your reading you wish to ask some questions on the route, vehicle, road/campsite/national park conditions, please feel free to do so.

Hi again Greg, and welcome to the forum! :thumbup: :thumbup:

I see you didn't have any hassles posting the blog. ;-)

That's an epic trip you undertook there! Like the way your van is rigged out! :thumbup:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Life is like a jar of Jalapeño peppers ... what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.
Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!
