There's a very thin line between brave and stupidLike I said, brave man.
I try not to think about the van throwing an electronic fit.
Or the "bravery" of passing through a red zone.
Some westerners still sneak into Timbuktu but that's well and truly in the stupid area.
We booked into the "best" hotel in town last night.
Stupidity expensive, pool empty, warm beer.....but oh the Aircon and shower is so good!!!
So maybe we're not "proper" overlanders. I kid you not now. We were parked up next to some Europeans in a Toyota Troopy who crap in a bucket. Me I just wondered over to a restaurant, paid the equivalent of $1 for an excellent coffee, took in the stunning sea views and used their facilities. We've met some very stupid people but mostly lovely, entertaining, interesting people
