After weeks of planning a trip to the distant place far from the greenery of Kwa-Zulu Natal, the morning has finally arrived.
The last minute rush to get the meat frozen, the food bought and packed into containers, water, wine and of course juice for Estelle has demanded that we are organised to the enth degree.
Leaving our office for 2 full weeks seems a huge thing to do. Estelle suddenly had a flurry of buyers calling her over the last few days and getting them sorted created an immense amount of stress for her. Coupled to that is making sure all things are in place at home. Our Happininess has cash, our furkids have food and keys are left with friends are just a few of the important issues to remember.
I packed the car last evening and was so grateful when the borrowed mobile freezer kicked in and immediately dropped to a minus degree. The amount of meat we are taking with seems enough to feed an army. Braai’s will be had morning and evening I reckon.
Our route is to Kimberley tonight where will overnight and then up towards Upington tomorrow and into the deep Kalahari and the beautiful Kgalagadi Park. We then meet up with 4 other family members to have an absolute relaxing time.
The coffee flask is ready, the Sante Fe is packed to the hilt and we’re ready to roll…
