"When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect. There is no other way for land to survive the impact of mechanized man, nor for us to reap from it the aesthetic harvest it is capable, under science, of contributing to culture." - Aldo Leopold

I'm reading this and thinking damnit, turn around and get the hell out of there and then you just keep going in further and further! Way too risky for me, but this is one hell of an adventure I don't want to end!!!
Has my adrenaline pumping as I'm reading it....

This is awesome, please donít keep us hanging onÖ what happened next ???
Once again thanks for all the great comments. Seeing people enjoying the report sure makes up for all the work it takes to type it out.
In Josephine's case that resulted in a sort of insomnia. She really slept bad all trough Congo. Always on the lookout I guess. Our leaking tent did not help either.
In my case it resulted in a lack of apetite. My stomach felt like I was desperatly in love. I really had to force myself to eat something.
In both our cases this meant we were getting physically exhausted.
I just reread the report and I am a bit embarrased about the amount spelling mistakes and typo's. I can do a better job. I make these reports during breaks at work or in between other things, so it's always a quick write-up and I post it immediately, without spellchecking. Sorry, but I am sure the message gets along.
When this report is done I will post some aftertoughts about the various aspects of this trip.
