Day 9: Preparing the 1000 km to Cape Town
Drove past Modder River and Magersfontein to visit 2 of the most important battle sites of the second boer war. Within 2 hours I had another two punctures. Land of thornes. Knew that I had to get back to Kimberley to buy some more reserve tubes for the deserted 1000 km down to Cape Town. This shopping tour at the sportsman's warehouse I opted for the thorn resistant ones (>2mm) plus tyre liners and self-repair slime that gets injected into the tube and fills the holes as they appear (to be proven, maybe it's just a slimy sales story). If all goes well, my bike and moonboot should take me down the 200km to Britstown tomorrow, situated exactly between Johannesburg and Cape Town.
