That was awesome, I was up until 2 am last night reading that.

PS: I wonder what kind of camera he has, 'cause all those pictures were unbelievable.

Amazing story, thanks for sharing. Between parenting, and the Red Sox, I was up late reading it as well.

Good link.

I did a few thousand mike in Kenya, I've travelled the Atlas mountains, the Sahara and the Nile.
I love Africa.

You can see why.

WOW! That was an incredible read and the photos and writing were fabulous. I think you're right about it possibly being the greatest thread ever. I know this sounds weird but I think that would be a great book.

That's amazing stuff. The pictures are just terrific. I could only dream of doing something like that one day.

Wow! That was really cool. I expected some political rant about diamonds or war-torn nations. Instead, I was treated to an incredible tale of adventure. Nice find!

A very long read indeed, but well worth it. I can only imagine doing something like that. An adventure where planning, provisioning and skill are all that keep you alive, that certainly would be the ultimate thrill.

Had nothing else to do at work this morning (besides waiting for customers to call and doing homework) and it was great! I have been in Africa before and it's great there!
