After a late start as we await the return of the mountains of washing we had off loaded with the camp site staff, all of which was ingrained with salt pan mud, we strike west towards Namibia. Unfortunately, it is the Cruiser’s turn to play up and we are halted part way down the 120km dirt road to a small border crossing as she has a steering problem.
Upon investigation, the Hawkins discover that she has a bent steering damper and set about rectifying the situation using a strap attached to the Rangie. A few good tugs and it is once more straight enough! These boys are getting more and more into the African brute force approach!
As evening is approaching we decide to bush camp and once more are blessed with clear skies and shooting stars whilst sitting around a campfire: lovely!
