Supporting Solar-Aid

While looking to give back to the world through our adventures we came across a novel idea in Solar-Aid that captured the main two issues facing our plant today which are climate change and global poverty. Solar-Aid helps to combat both by bringing clean, renewable power to the poorest people in the world. 


Barely 2% of rural Africa has access to the electricity grid yet many regions of Africa have the highest levels of sunshine in the world. Solar-Aid works with these remote and disadvantaged communities, helping them tap into an abundant source of free, clean and renewable energy - the sun!

Solar-Aid works in rural areas across East and Southern Africa; installing solar on schools, community centers and clinics. This is known as macrosolar

It's Nemo tents for us

After searching for weeks on the net for the tent that would best suit our needs for the Africa Trip, we cam across the NEMO ESPRI two person tent which is light, well built , has pockets, and taped seams to keep you dry. 

 I would buy the tent just for the excellent customers service, when I ordered three tents for all three of us I got an email from them just to confirm that I didn't make a mistake. Now how often has that happen to you ? to me never , and I order almost every thing for the guys.

I recently took a trip to Musandam in Oman and tested the tent in the mountains it did what it was supposed to do, and slept with a clear view of the mountain in front of me. It is a very versatile three season tent and has room for me and my stuff inside, you can use just the tent to have a meshed roof when the weather is worm and dry , or cover up with the water proof cover.

We have GPS maps for Africa

On our Round the World Trip we had to rely on paper maps as well as a GPS since Garmin doesn't have maps for all the countries we were traveling in, and we didn't have the time to find third party maps that would work. Well I just purchased and installed all the maps I will need for our trip to Cape Town form one source "Travel By GPS" it has all the main roads as well as some facilities.

Do you need A GPS? Well not really if you have paper maps and have time to navigate the crowded streets of a city. I rather have one than not, and I will be taking one paper map of the whole of Africa for reference.

Part 2 Africa Adventure 2011

So after careful calculation on how much vacation time I have in 2011, and how long it would take to get to Cape Town from Kuwait, We decided to implement part 2 of our adventures which is Kuwait to Cape Town with a tentative date of 17th of March. Believe it or not but the initial route took only 3 days to finish, route refinements are still going on. We did however finalize the countries we will visit and I will be posting each country and what we expect to see.

Malcolm S. Forbes said - “Living and dreaming are two different things — but you can't do one without the other.”

ROK Straps

These are great straps for traveling if you have luggage that needs to stay on your bike. I used them on our round the world trip and they functioned very well making it easy to put on and remove my luggage on bike.
