sad I missed you when you drove through here.

Great to see you in London, and will be thinking of you as you fly home next

Looking forward to the North America to South America jaunt in due course.

Happy Birthday Mike. I could not send you an email as I got
a message to say that your mail box is full. Probably very
full by now.
Have a safe trip home,
It feels like yesterday that you invited me to join the sendoff
party at the watefront with my mercedes! Have been following
your progress. Done in style - how else?
Graham van Heerden
Well done on making it here.
Wonderful to meet you and hear about your
experiences first hand after reading them on the interent
for Ray and Dennis over the past weeks.
Hope you have a safe trip back.
Congratulations Mike, Jeanette and the whole
Silver Spirit team. Up the Springboks! Good show!

All the best, Marianne and Russell,
WOW!! You guys are almost there!!! Wish i could be there to
experience your joy at the finish line!!! I am honoured to
have had a small part in making your journey less tedious.
You folks are amazing and whenever life gets me down I'll
think of you and see that it's worth getting through in the
end. Mike and Jeanette you are a true inspiration to me and

Congratulations on fullfilling a dream!!! You Guys
Nearly there! I hope the sea crossing is smooth for you. Congratulations,
you have proved that geriatrics can continue to enjoy life
to the full, and then some!
Tom & Rhoda (the beeman)
Come on Mike, really enough is enough. All
this loafing around the pleasure resorts of Europe, no doubt
being wined and dined by royalty and film stars. This is not
the stuff that Amy and Emilia and the rest of them were made
of. They dragged themselves out of their beds in the morning
and got on with the trip. They also got onto the morse buzzer
and sent the world cheerful messages So bustle about - your
fans want to see action, and the odd message from time to
time would not go amiss.
All the best, enjoy yourselves,
We're proud of you! Wishing you a a safe
return and a truck full of memories.
Noel & Val Otten
Hope you having great time (despite Roger!).
Let us know when you arrive in U.K.
Keep smiling, David Hall
Well it looks like you are getting close
to my " Father Land" ( Liverpool ) I think I should
try the trip in my 1959 MGA 1600 Coupe !
I would be interested to know the total
cost of your trip.
Guys u have proved that it is never too
old to achieve any goals in life,,have you thought of driving
back to CT instead of flying?
All the best. Nthwana
Hello Mike and Jeanette, Thrilled that you have made it safely
through Africa, don't muck it up now that you are so close
to completion. Look forward to hearing the "inside"
story when you return.

and to hear about your journey. So looking forward to hearing
more and seeing you soon.

Hi Mike and Jeanette hope you are well and having fun. Jeanette
I hope the Tequilla is cheaper than the beers!!!
I envy the team as it is something I have
dreamed of (Travelling Africa by road). I believe it takes
a special kind of person to undertake such an arduous trip
and to do it at the wonderful age of 70+ means you have looked
after your health in your younger life and I guess we should
thank the Aalmighty for it.This journey is a real inspiration
to me and lends credence to the saying that nothing is impossible.
May the rest of the journey bring you even
more joy and we pray that you come through it safely.
I am the owner of a 1954 Silver Wraith.
What you are currently doing must be the most exiting thing
any Rolls Rolls owner can only dream off. I wish I could join
you as I believe my Wraith would keep up with the Spirit!
Wish you the best of luck and wonderful memories. Well done!!
Faan du Toit
Love you lots and keep tracking you on the
site. I wish the youngsters of this world can learn from your
tenacity, courage and huge "big balls" that in this
case Janetta has too!......... What a lesson and exemple!
Go for the rest of it.

Hi Mike and Jeannette and rest of the team,
I spoke to Jackie Hulme (I am her buddy
from Accenture - wanted to buy your business at one stage)
yesterday and she told me about your adventure and how well
you are doing. Wow, setting new benchmarks and standards for
the rest of us - what can I say, roll on 70 something.
I can imagine the amount that is flowing
- can you get Graca in Egypt?
Best wishes, miranda
Rummikub champ is losing her skills and

the letter from Mayor Zille?
Onwards, Andre Loubser
I am very impressed that
you are in Egypt already. I thought it was going to take much
longer. I heard you on Cape Talk on Friday. After u arrive
in the UK, will you leave the car behind or is it coming back
to SA? I think I will take your trip from Cape to Cairo on
Hope to meet up with you
one day back in SA. Good luck.

a great time
Best wishes from an ex Pupil
Pilot of yours.
Dear Mike &
I sent this message as an
e-mail, but just to be sure that you receive it... You guys
are doing a fantastic thing! You must be having the biggest
jol of all time – and Marc, you get to do a once in
a lifetime trip – twice! Wicked stuff mate. I see you
must bee nearing Wadi Halfa by now and in mine and Marc’s
experience, this is a phenomenally hospitable place. The real
beauty is that once the ferry ride over to Aswan is complete
– it really is all worth it. Cocktails and cold beers
all round. Anyway, great site, seen pics on facebook and cheering
you all the way. I’ll be sure to send more votes of
confidence as you go along. Keep up the good work.
Be safe, have fun
and, of course, a half-n-half for me cuz
Yours in cross-Africa adventuring…
Dear Mike &
Read about your exciting
adventure in the YOU last night. What an awesome experience.
You are both blessed to have health and positive attitude
and we trust and pray for your safe journey (together with
your team) and that you will be able to sit back one day and
just cherish your wonderful adventure. You obviously make
your kids (and grandchildren) very proud.
Enjoy and God Bless.

Hi there Silver Spitited ones!
My name is Tanzi I'm a 24 year teacher in
Cape Town, I wanted to wish you safe travels I have been tracking
your journey with you on the site!
I think the Silver Spirit is in everyone,
I too love the open road, love the adventure of new places,
I admire how you have taken life and lived it to the full,
you too look like the most amazing couple, your love for each
other is visibly and tangible, through the way you care and
the way you respect one another! The Silver Spirit journey
is definietly a task not to be taken lightly, as the terrain,
the "Africanisation" is challenging.
I too hope to follow in your and others
footprints/ tyre treads and take up the journey thats closest
to my heart! AFRICA!! what a marvel, what a story! My Prayers
are with you for safe travel, and for a unforgettable experience
of life and love of each other and the world that you have
at your feet!!
Your wild hearts of flying to new hights
and it seems that now the sky is not even the limit. Treasure
each other and treasure the journey that is life!
All my love, Tanzi Davies
HI Mike and Jeanette,
Thinking of you every day.

This adventure is proving most interesting reading for me.
That Silver Spirit was in our family since 1981, served as
a wedding car for all our family and, literally, nursed with
kid-gloves - I can't believe what it is actually capable of.
We even stopped using it as a travelling vehicle years ago
in case it was damaged. My husband and I (Mark Harding Jnr)
had a few holidays in the car and she floated like a dream
- modern parkades though were not suited to her size and spiralled
ramps proved daunting. Nonethe less, we loved her dearly and
all the family will remember 'our old Roller' with extreme
I wish you all the very best with the rest of your adventure

I am praying that you and the other people
with you will be safe.All my love your daughter Lara in Tasmania

Just wanted to let you know that all at
Zoo Lake are following the Adventure with much interest and
are looking forward to one big party on your return! All the
best from the Crew at The Zoo!
Wow! feels like you've been gone forever...the
kids keep whining for their father, asking me "when is
daddy coming home? why did he leave us?" and the bed
is so cold and empty. Both the days and nights are dark, but
thats mainly thanks to Eskom! I'm of course uber-jealous that
you are having such an incredible adventure and can't wait
for the 4 day long photo extravaganza! Your "derrty"
couches have been washed and every spot in the house is super
shiny and clean...fit for a real "laaaady"
Be safe, take care and hurry home

G'day you beautiful old codgers, I'm thrilled

daily, and she sends much love to your Spirit!

day on your progress. I trust you are both well and safe.What
an amazing adventure. Lots of love Jo-Ann

to follow your progress. Best wishes to you all

to do something like this! It is truely amazing. I believe
you will reach London in good health and happy spirits!
Mike and Jeanette
All the best to you and to the team.
