the notorious thick Namib fog that envelops the desert from the Atlantic.
Fatbike and equipment
I will have to take minimal kit with me to make space for supplies, especially water, as I fatbike through the desert. My bike will be fitted with custom bag storage to carry all the essentials for the journey, but still allow for flexibility when tackling the steep 200-300 meter dunes of the Namib. I will be taking kit which can stand up to the extreme change in temperature, as daytime heat soars and night-time drops to near zero.
Across the desert I will be assisted by an expert paramotor pilot who will meet me at set points, checking I am hitting my water caches and discussing vital weather conditions and challenges of the next leg of the journey.
