GOLD MINE

Sex. Gold. Booze. Bush planes. Safari estates. All the elements necessary to light up your serotonin receptors… 
Before John Grisham had established unusual American legal cases as the pulp fiction of the masses, Wilbur Smith had given us adventure in the dark heart of Africa. This one won't boost your IQ or help you negotiate that next meeting, but it may stretch your imagination. 
And if you can't stretch your imagination far enough you can always watch the movie instead. Roger Moore, Susannah York, and Sir John Gielgud romping around the African bush fueled by greed, scotch, and gold. 
For me, and millions of others, it was Africa writ large.

The Elephant Charge 

In the early 1990's DQ was studying for his first law degree. Being DQ that meant rowing crew, partaking in beer and creme egg races around the quad in tuxedos, and running all the parties he could manage to dream up. He once even shut down most of a street and 1,500 people turned up to a student party in three adjacent rented townhouses with more than just five foot bubbles blowing out of the windows. Suffice to say DQ could count the local Police as attendees of the mayhem…
A man can’t do all of these things on his own, though, which is where we swerve back to the dark heart of Africa. Zambia to be precise. As DQ's partner in crime in all these escapades was a gent named Zambian.
DQ started visiting him in the mid-1990’s. First to indulge in wondrous safaris, bungee jumps, white water rafting, and general adventures of the African kind. And, latterly, to aid in raising money for conservation by participating in The Elephant Charge.
The Elephant Charge is now in its 10th year and supports many conservation charities in Zambia. DQ will be participating once again in a rally prepped 1970 Land Rover Series 2A 109" truck.

Warn Winches

When you find yourself nose down in a river, stuck on the rocks and unable to move, even with the 4x4, it's time to roll up your sleeves and find a suitable tree to use as a pivot to pull yourself out. And when you are pulling up those sleeves you want the winch on your car to be from WARN Industries, Inc.

We like to think that the right outfit transports you to another place. And we've noted before that it does actually make a difference. But even if you have your Edwardian cuffs cut right like our friend in the photo, and your waistcoat with lapel in place, you may need more giddy-up than just a fine wool mohair blend [...]

“the direct route isn’t always the best one” We've had a lot of time to think about this as we've just driven across Africa in a car that averages 50mph on a good day. 14 hours of trundling along through the middle of nowhere gives time for reflection. Time to think about how lucky [...]
