    WOW!!! what an EPIC!! give that man a BELLS!!

    Patrick, he also kept well away from the North East Orientale province, I returned from there 3 weeks ago, and my opinions that I gave you about the area are still valid. The route that the biker dude did is through a much more peaceful and stable region...

    I am strong, because I've been weak.
    I am fearless, because I've been afraid.
    I am wise, because I've been foolish.

    Hi Patrick,

    One small difference - you can't load your Cruiser on the back of a truck or pop it onto a small boat for a river crossing the way you can with a bike!

    How are things going Gary? Yeah i still dont what to head north?? My plan is still very much along the route he has taken.
    There has been a couple guys going through there lately.
    Was chatting to my mate thats working in Lubumbashi and he said that there has also been more westerners heading through there. Im not sure if its because visas for Angola are getting harder to get??
    My biggest problem now is that DRC are not giving out visas unless you get them from your own country!!! My problem is Australia does not have an embassy.

    Ture, but again that is just part of the challenge. It would suck to get almost all the way and get stopped by a river.
