Hey Bro,

to the HUBB!!

Fantastic trip you have planned there. Which way will you travel through Africa? West coast I am guessing.

8 months seems pretty tight IMO, I would think you would think a year would be good budgeting for time. Also travelling through central Africa is very slow.

Will you be posting here on the HUBB or do you have a blog/website?

Looking forward to hearing more as the plan develops into reality.

Cheers!

Thank you Mr Charger

And what very warm welcome, yes i plan to do the well worn route through eygpt then sudan to south africa and over to oz then home , and more than likely back again, the 8 month window is only a rough guild so no real time frame.

again thanks for the welcome

Hello
I'm very interested in this trip. I currently have an r1 but thinking of selling to purchase a gs adventure for this purpose. I have some money put aside and have no job so this is the right time for me.
Let me now your plans.
