The Beginning of the End… Hopefully :)

Day 9 began at 6am, it took the guys a little longer than usual to get out of bed this morning, entirely due i’m sure to yesterdays 65km push. their average distance over the past 4 days has been between 55 and 65 km, much further than they initially intended.  There bodies are sore and tired, but ready to make the last push to the end.  The end is near the Tella Bridge border, seeing today as a 43 km stage. at their current pace they should be finished before lunch.  For all those who have supported us throughout this journey, from initialization to completion the teams heartfelt thanks go out.

Jurie and Devon begin their last day of Paddling for the Trailblazer SALT Senqu Expedition.

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!

Have your say. We want to hear from you.
