Another Long Day in the Saddle

We just got back from a 750 mile (1200 km) day, a lot of which was spent in clouds dodging thunderstorms. We got back to White River just before dark and just before it started hoofing it down with rain.

We went to Jo'burg International pick up a Spanish family and drop them off at a dirt strip near the Moz/Zim border. We will pick them up again on Friday and take them on up through Botswana to Zimbabwe.

On the way to Jo'burg we were able to help another mission family who work in N. Moz and who had been down in SA over Christmas to have a baby. This baby became one of our youngest ever passenger at just 6 weeks! This saved Anne and the kids a five day 4x4 drive back to N. Moz which her husband was having to do.

Always worth looking right, left, and right again at T junctions at Jhb.

Not too obvious in this next pic but at the dirt strip where we dropped them off, we had to chase away an Elephant before we could safely take off again.
