full 95min film of double trans Africa in TLC on Youtube


Since the selling of the DVD is discontinued, I have put the complete 95min fully edited, subtitled and narrated film of our double Trans Africa trip on You tube in high quality ! It had to be cut is 10 pieces but its all there!

The route was down the west coast and up the east coast so if you are interested in getting a fair idea about route, landscapes and road conditions because you are preparing a trip your selves just have a look.

Angola should be a bit better by now but otherwise Africa does not change very fast

Enjoy and let me know what you think of it....

Great video. If you want people to see / download the complete DVD why not seed it on Bittorrent. Contact me if that sounds gobldy gook and I'll explain.

Are you planning any more trips? or did that massive one satisfy you?

Hi Bob,

That is indeed gobldy gook although I do use torrent sites frequently to get the usual stuff but I have no idea how to upload anything other than when its in my Vuze directory, it automatically uploads when some one hits the download link. Bottom line I don't know how to put an original link on the torrent sites. If you can explain, please! You can PM me.

And yeah, going to Australia soon for a couple of months, does not sound so adventurous but the Ozzie outback is an environment which is as hostile as can be! Gonna buy a Toyota Troopy over there and do some serious remote driving, possibly alone . Will take sat phone with me though, as a safety net. Just spent an hour or so in Media-Market to orientate on the newest video camera's.

So, yes there will hopefully be some more video's soon

And finally, I am afraid that the more I travel, the more I want to travel.

bit torrent

Hi PH,

I wouldn't know how to put it on bit torrent but it seems that it is also possible to download video's from Youtube, saw an App the other day that you need to download and install (or something of that kind) which allows you to down load from Youtube!
