A few days ago we had a minor breakdown.  It was the day before I was scheduled to go to Tanzania.  Which…makes it a bit more of a stressful breakdown.
One of the main support bolts came loose for one of the tie-rods.  It fell out somewhere along the way from Talek to Emarti.  We noticed it pretty quickly because the steering became erratic just after Aitong.
