Even though doing it alone might be "foolish" I like the idea, Respect man
If I had my family with me it would have been a different story but being alone a few days stuck on the side of the road would not have been an issue.
I could have been self sufficient for a week. I am a bush mechanic and carry a suite of spares and tools. My boss flies and knows the area like the back of his hand as he flew explosives into a mine in the Hartman Valley for years. If I was not back within 2 days of advertised I know there would be eyes in the sky. My route was known to a bunch of people and the Marienfluss is a busy highway compared to the Hartman valley. I actually had time to do the Hartman valley but being in the Hartman with no-one knowing would have wiped out all my back-up plans I sat for half an hour at the junction agonising over whether to go off route, but sense prevailed. So I stuck to the Marienfluss. Next trip is to the Hartman Valley. Any takers?
I am also an exploration geologist meaning that I have done solo trips in Ghana, DRC and Peru.
