I’ve been following the adventures of Jon Mallet, and a crew of his friends, as they travel from Toddington to Timbuktu by off road motorbike.
He got in touch yesterday, and told me that Timbuktu is closed for business, due to fear of kidnapping and suchlike. Worse still, he was waiting for a part to be sent from the UK to repair his bike. Kev was out riding, and has broken his leg. Bike and rider are 600 km apart, so Jon is busy collecting his bike, while Kev recovers.
I’ll keep you updated on what happens, a group of resourceful guys like that will work something out, but this is real world adventure, so won’t be easy.
Best wishes to all of you.
