Trailblazer Senqu Expedition Paddling Stage, Leg 1 Update

So the guys are on their 4th day out from Mokhotlong, on a leg that was supposed to take 3 days, but was hoped to take 2 days.  They should be at the rendezvous point sometime after lunch today.  The river is much lower than anticipated and even the rain we have had has not been able to escape infiltration and bolster streamflow.

Just to show you a brief view of what a “better” section of river looks like. Still hoping it gets better as we move into the flatter water downstream.  The photo doesn’t do it justice, but the deepest part of those channels is less than knee deep, on a Devon sized human being.

About jurie pohl

Life is what you make of it. I spend as much time as humanly possible, off the beaten track. where I do not have a choice though, I stay on the track. most of these tracks are within the Drakensberg World Heritage Site. I have been hiking and leading groups professionally for 6 years and have got well over a thousand hours under the belt. I have done more Passes and solo-expeditions than I can recall, most notably of them, the Grand Traverse. The Senqu expedition was an adventure I could simply not negate. I am sure however, that it will not be the last time I undertake a grand venture and am in fact, already dreaming of the next exploratory challenge! Milk it while you can!
