We reached the top of the ridge after leaving Moir Hut Camp only to be run over by the “Tusker folks”. Notice the yellow headtop bags and matching logoed jackets. Smooth. Their clients, a nice couple in their 60s, fueled by the same lemming-like instincts. She from Toronto and he from Durbin they bought their gear at an REI in Jacksonville, Florida. Must be the half-way point for them between Canada and South Africa. And he had the EXACT SAME BOOTS as I had! We were suddenly brothers-in-feet. Quickly trading boot reviews (“they’re awesome, they’re awesome”) they were on their way but would again haunt us in the coming days with their flashy yellow crew.
