  • Around Europe/Asia in a Shorty

    The story continues, well not for another 45 days or so till the wagon arrives in Izmir, Turkey.
    I finally got a window big enough to get to South Africa and get the wagon shipped out. Bit of a shit show but I was able to ship out on a TIP which is great news for those of you who will maybe do the same, as it allows complete avoidance of a carnet which to me is not worth it.

    Onto some pictures to get this new set of blogs rolling, as previously I will include blog links with better pictures as I go.

    Arriving in South Africa after being away for 10 months the wagon needed a small boost to get running, but then ran like a top. will need some fluid changes and filters but I will do that in Turkey when it arrives.



    Being that my TIP was expired, I called around and couldn't get a solid answer and due to my tight time schedule I decided to hammer to the Botswana border post and get a new TIP, I arranged this in advance, and is a free service. do not let them bride you, they can smell fear haha. Otherwise I had a very clean run got my paperwork and was headed back to Joburg in no time at all.




    Back in Joburg I finished packing up the wagon, looking legit again I had a celebratory drink and slept off the night before my big drive to Durban.





    Rolling along in the sunny sunny weather I made great time and even had enough time to head for my pre flight covid check. All clean both ways. surprising since I am at the border dealing with heaps of people all the time...




    Finally it was time to pack up. unlike Oz and the ridiculous rules and regs and power trippers that made it nearly impossible to get into the loading area, I was able to rock up ion thongs and a singlet to pack the wagon which was nice. rather low stress event. It ships today or tomorrow.

        You bet, its a bit of a process. straps, battery unhooked, lock, double check everything is stable and not going to move. and hope the ship has good weather on its journey.
