Day 4 - The longest day
Today we had to travel 650 kilometres, it would be the longest distance travelled in a single day - the weather would be "scorchio" and we had at least 10 hours driving, so an early start at 7:00 am
The gods were on our side, the day was actually quite cool and the it rained - beautiful.
But the Gods demand their payment and soon the rain made the dirt roads very slippy and we were drifting all over the place, until finally ..... Full broadside and the truck was stuck blocking the entire "road" After about a hour of digging, putting rocks under the wheels and letting the tyres down to half pressure we finally got on our way again but at a very slow pace.
At 7:30 pm we arrived at our destination, tired and hungry but the sun was shining, the camp had an amazing setting in the desert surrounded by mountains and excellent lodge style accommodation....... Not to mention a pool, a bar and the Internet - "result"
