The Challenge Route
Monday, June 22, 2009
You will be able to follow our jouney here with regular updates telling you where we are now and where we will be heading. Be aware that our internet coverage along the way does not cover many of the more rural areas that we will be walking through so if you notice that the route has not been updated in a while, it probably means we are making friends with the locals so hang in there - it will be here soon!
