They happen to have a facebook page, as well, where an up to date blog is maintained. There was a rather large group that had just returned from a stay at Buffalo camp, and they were very enthusiastic about their experience. And as has happened in many of our travels, we met people from places we have either lived in, or lived near. This group included two Americans, one from Albuquerque, and one from Denver. The man from Denver was a fellow CSM graduate, but a much more recent graduate. The member of their party who brought them to Zambia is studying at Fort Collins, and hopes to return to work in Zambia, where his father (another member of the group) is a farmer.
Saturday morning we left just after it was light enough to drive the Chingola to Kitwe road safely, and arrived pleasantly early at Kapishya, just after 5. At Kapiri the highway became wide, and less traveled than the first half of the drive. That meant we made incredibly good time.
At the Kapiri junction:
Serenji, we were in line with some military trucks getting diesel. I used the toilet, and let's just say I didn't pay, and I used plenty of antiseptic hand wipes when I finished.
Unfortunately most of the time we gained was lost once we turned off the main road and on to the dirt road. Plenty of washboards, reminiscent of the back country dirt roads in Nevada.
