We are flying to Boston on April 15 to pick up our new Novara Safaris
Ken and Jules
Simply an fyi note of encouragement on your new rides ~ I have had the good fortune of owning/touring on and off road my 2001 Novara Safari since 2001 and found that its durability has met all of my expectations. Would buy it all over again/would unhestitatingly recommend the rig to friends.
I wish you both a glorious expedition.
Q was w/ regard to tools:
My best guess is that you have probably heard this before (& of course I request your forgiveness if it has already been posted above and I missed it), but there is a lot of value in the notion of only taking the tools that you really know
how to use.... otherwise, you are simply adding to the weight/bulk of your load, not to mention the same for your false expectations.
