Reon, Corrie, Paulina and me out tasting various wild animal meet, emmmMMmm!

Back up in Johannesburg it was time to get the Landrover, the paper work took longer… 

 

We contacted Reon, the biker by the side of road I’d helped.  He invited us round for a braai (a BBQ to us folks not South African) and he invited us to stay over in there spare room, which was very much appreciated as we had no luck trying to find local camping in Johannesburg.  We got to know Reon, Corrie and there three boys well and they were a great help at this time.  My bike was stored in there garage and they helped with the documentation to get the Landrover in my name using their address, after a few trips and a 200Rand bribe to the Vehicle Licensing Department I had the three sheets of paper to say the Landrover was legally now mine with my photo on one and a corresponding tax disc to fix to the window.  All I needed to take the Landy out of the country.

 

We had the Landy almost kitted out, we got a roof tent, fridge/freezer and various other camping stuff, spares for the Landy and fill it with food.  This would be a real change for  me travelling by bike as you can only carry basic food for a few days and now I could have a COLD beer when I wanted!  There was others things to get…but it was time to move.

 

I had some news about my father and it concerned me… but here I am far away from home and the distance grows larger the more I thought about things...
