Good luck with the KONI's .. I have only heard good things of it.
I have a dream of driving from Dubai to Cape Town,, probably container the ship to Kenya, Mombasa or a port in Ethiopia, this is something that I am planning on doing when our Dubai Expo 2020 kicks in, as I don't want to hang about for all the urban crap. If I bring my son, who will be 11 by then, he would also get one of the best experiences and education in the world by joining me and my wife.
I am not sure whether my petrol patrol would be ok through that route, as mostly people are using diesel, but another SA guy here just bought a petrol 79 series LC, and he is planning on driving down too in 2 years time, so maybe he knows more than I do.....
My patrol in Africa, what a sight!!!!! If we do make it down, we sure will join someone here on a trip in your sector of the best continent on earth. We have many folks from SA here, and they are just natural in the outdoors, my wife and I try and learn from you them.
An interesting observation we have made when on club day trips. The lunch stop, typically under a rare shaded tree here, everybody breaks out the home cooked meals, sandwiches, some rice based dish or some sort of pre-prepared packed meal from a supermarket or petrol station. The SA folk, break out the braai, light the coal, and cook the meat, clean it all up, pack it away in under 45 minutes!!!!! I salute you!
I must admit my cooking skills at home are pathetic, and outdoors I make sure I have enough beer to stomach what I may cook! So need to get some recipes from here and practice before the trip through Africa.
