November 11th – day 143

Sunday 11 november

It’s Sunday morning, we have a slow start. Dirk is checking the tyres. He mentions one front tyre has reached the canvas layer. We decided to use our last spare tyre and change the front to the rear. We are out of spare tyres now.
Dirk tries to contact a Ford club in South Africa for extra tyres.
