Taking it all in…

We have converged on Augrabies all eager and rearing to go-an adventure of extreme and epic proportions for 7 days in the Kalahari awaits…

Back at camp resting now. The air is hot and dry. The wind gusty and warm. The space immense. The silence easeful. Nature in it’s rare quiet and awe inspiring power!

It’s a true privilege to be here. I feel grateful for this opportunity to head into the desert tomorrow. Into the unknown, the uncertainty of the enriching journey that awaits…

In the quiet moments I’m exhilarated, terrified, inspired, moved and breathing deeply. Taking this moment in. As like every other moment over the next 7 days the best way to do it is to take each moment in. Kinda like life I guess.

The atmosphere is charged, the energy electric, and the conversations animated as we gather for our race briefing.
