Tarmac, Tailwinds and Terrible Tubes!
As promised, today was a drastically different Sudan. Gone are the corrugations and the walk of shame out of sand is a distant memory. Today we took back the road.
Asphalt never looked so good. The straight, yellow lines and smooth pavement were a blessing. The road snaked through the desert, passing military checkpoints and a caravan of camels. Enjoying a strong tailwind, tires spun smooth and fast, sending everyone into camp before 13:30.
On another note, today I was reminded that patience is virtue when replacing a punctured tube. Even the most professional mechanic, if rushed, can fall victim to a repeat flat. Buckey replaced three tubes during lunch, shredding two of them. A lesson to everyone, take your time when replacing a tube!
