    We went on a trip after Marks 2nd trip to Africa and my brother claimed that Marks farts rotted out the seat on his side. The lady I was with on that trip was a clinical pathologist and she wanted a poop sample to study. A few years ago he travelled with a bunch of people to
    South America for a job and they went out to eat. Mark just ordered what he wanted and the rest just followed along. They all got sick but Mark was fine.

    Hi Everyone,

    After 3,088 miles - by far the most in any country so far - it's time to say goodbye to Angola.


    I have deeply loved this country, and I'm certain I will be back some day. After 6 weeks I have only scratched the surface.

    I'm looking forward to Namibia!

    Well it's Christmas Day here in Australia and we are having a fine one. I would just like to say a "Merry Christmas" and a Good and Safe traveling New Year to Yourself.
    It has been amazing following your travels and would be a journey I would certainly like to take.

    Keep it safe, keep the shiny side up and keep the travel story coming.
    Dan.

    I spent all my money on this truck that the only mod I can afford, is a weekly wash in my driveway.

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    I have driven into Namibia, country number 18 - without any signs or warning, I swapped to driving on the left for the first time on the expedition.

    This should be interesting!

    Be careful, if you're anything like me and you haven't driven on the left in a while, when you get away from traffic you'll find yourself subconsciously drifting right. Doh!

    Enjoy the New Year!

    Hey Everyone,

    I have been exploring the extremely remote Namib Desert in the North West of Namibia.
    It is absolutely spectacular. I'm wild camping every night and loving it!
