So....we're headed out tomorrow morning for a camping and road trip that's been on the list of things to do for 3 years.  But it just occurred to us today that we don't actually know the route or have a map beyond "head out leopards hill road."  The one above shows our starting point (Lusaka) and ending point (Kiambi) but we're going the infamous "escarpment route." you know, the one NOT on the maps.  All we know is that the path was last maintained in 2008 (4 rainy seasons ago), that you only do it as a convoy and with high clearance 4x4.  There are any number of reasons for going this way and for going now-- the most compelling of which is that every description of this particular itinerary uses the words "breathtaking" and "spectacular."

WISH US LUCK!  (and send us a map if you have one?!)
