Running and bashing my way through 30kms in one day hurts so good.
I find myself in the back of a bakkie (pick-up truck) because I failed to remember that I needed to plan a ride to the start of my adventure.
The Langeberg High Ridge Line is quintessentially Rim of Africa. This section of walking challenged us all with extreme climbs and descents, clouds and wind, and drought and exhaustion.
There’s very little water to be found walking on the high ridge of the Langeberg mountain.
We climb the steady slopes of Langeberg mountain and the wind pushes the clouds down to greet us; a gathering in the sky.
Wind can give you headaches. It peels you naked then removes your skin and muscles and grabs your bones.
For the second time in the same day, we drastically underestimated the difficulty of the mountain facing us. For us, there’s only one solution— to keep climbing.
What makes a real adventurer? It’s a great question. The allure of wild space and wild things is powerful but we all have different relationships with it.
