Not to diss your 'mog tyre changing, but a little warmer...that's the least of it!
1. finding a dust free environment to change your tube is bloody near impossible.
2. If you have to change a tyre, out of nowhere descends a mob hell bent on either helping you change your tyre or helping themselves to any of your kit - this does not exclude them from opening the doors of your vehicle to take alook inside for something nice to pinch.
3. We parked up in TZ to change a tyre and found we had parked, off road, right next to a 2m long Black Mamba. Luckily for us, but not for him, one of TZ's lunatic truck drivers had already, just, quashed the life out of him as he as still all floppy.
4. There are no hard shoulders in Kenya, the road just comes to an abrubt halt. Apart from the danger of changing any tyre in the path of traffic, there is usually a 6 to 18 inch drop off to the side of the road (caused by erosion) so pulling off the road is sometimes a mission all on it's own.
So apart from the people, the wildlife, the evironment and the crap roads I can see how you can draw a positive comparison between our experiences!
