Traveling lighter

When at bicycle shop last week Jimmy the owner made some suggestions.

1. Change bolts to Allen keys. So that I only need to carry a multi tool and not extra spanners.

2. Get a pump that can take co2 canisters and do manual pumping. So that if I need to seat tubeless tyres again I can.

3. I should come in for training in his workshop to fix some of the major breakage’s.

4. There is a local trucking company that does trips north of South Africa. I should go speak to the owner to see if could get a lift up to Malawi.

Getting ready for next trip

Last Saturday got a 1.5 kg tent. This will save 3 kg of luggage. To be quite honest this tent will not stand up to a good storm like my other tent. I am taking the lead from http://ultralightcycling.blogspot.com/. He says” so what you get a little wet”. On the other hand traveling lighter makes trip much more enjoyable. I found it gave me extra space in my panniers, this will free up space for other much needed items.Digital CameraThis is my old tent.
