The supportcar has arrived !!! Its time to make forward distance again :-))
Despite quite hilly terrain, alt. between ca. 1700m and ca. 2500m, the legs definately has gathered strength during the 2 days of recovery in Maksegnit !
And its safe to say that having the support of Tommy (nicknamed "the gun") who has flown in from denmark to drive the supportcar through E. Africa makes a Huge difference to running w. a stroller pushing 40kg up the hills.. :-)
By the way I had 10min. of rain today. First drops I have fealt since Turkey 5000km ago (saw first rainclouds 3days ago) !!!
Signals that Im out of the deserts, Syrian, Jordan, Sinai and the Sahara, now.
NB: In Ethiopia gprs-service (global phone roaming service) is not yet avaliable for datatransmission. Therefore the Live-gps data cant be transmittet to the website as usual. It may first be avaliable in Kenya. Untill then traditional documentation is used: photo, logbook, video, wittness etc. !
