We had head about a place called Junction from some fellow travelers and were given a GPS way point. The funny thing about a way point without any additional info is that we ended up driving around the back streets of Nairobi trying to work out just which street took us closer than 100mtrs to the waypoints given.
Alas it was found, i (Harry) noticed a painted white monkey on a set of gates with the letters JJ.. i said that has got to be it and it was.. as it turns our this place is not an official tourist thing thus it is unable to sign post the way.. as it turns out it is the Meca for overland motorbikers there is a work shop and 2 mechanics on duty, nice one. Anyway we can camp here and organise our Sudan and Ethiopia Visa's whist waiting for Ian & Nikki to arrive to head north via Banya Fort.
Great news, we chatted to some Germans who just came down the Western side of Lake Tukhanna (we want to go the Eastern side)... the news on the road in Ethiopia was... wait for it.... they spent 3 days winching and digging
