Moksha Video - Out of Water

Click on image to play video (high speed connection advised).

LOCATION: Djibouti
Longitude: N:11deg.36.112'
Latitude: E: 043deg.09.196'

We're back in business for video again - click on the image above the view recent footage Kenny took of Moksha being pulled out of the water onto dry land. You'll need quicktime and a relatively fast internet connection.

This is in anticipation of shipping her back to Rotterdam in a 40 foot container ready for the final crossing of the Channel and up the River Thames to finish at Greenwich.

Which brings me around to a formal request for assistance to make this happen before the expedition arrives there by bike end of September. Merril Shipping here in Djibouti are offering a 40ft container for the price of a 20ft one. However the remaining cost of shipping, including local charges at either end, is still around $4,500 USD. Jackie and Jean Bernard here have kindly donated $250 towards the total needed to be raised. Should anyone feel like making a pledge specifically to this please contact me directly by email

African leg starts by bike tomorrow at 7am.


> Total to raise: $4,500
> Total raised to date: $250
> Total still to raise: $4,000

Sincerest thanks to the following for your pledges -
- Jackie and Jean Bernard, Djibouti, $250.

Good luck with the next leg - we'll be in Egypt April 1-9, a little early to run in to you but all the best.
