Day 42. Saturday 12th September 1970 – Afghanistan

We drove for about 60 miles down the road until we found a filling station, where we changed the front tyre because the tyre we put on last night was a rear one and only temporary. It was decided that the best thing to do would be to motor down to Kandahar, taking it very easy and there purchase a new front tyre.

During the afternoon we had some trouble with the water pump – which Rod and Keith managed to fix.

We camped for the night about 20 miles outside of Kandahar, after driving through the night. This seems to be the best time to travel.

The weather was very hot and sunny.
