Trackmark Camp - Loki

This place is a little oasis for pilots and others flying into Sudan etc. The can of doom was handy for taking out perhaps the largest cockroach I'd seen in sometime... The toukal (hut) was my (rather hot!) home for the night.

Dude. The roach was kinda fizzing and spinning around when I zapped him - I didn't have the PDA handy and was happy for him to crawl off and die elsewhere... but you are right it would have been a cool piccy.

Hi there. Looks like an interesting adventure. I am considering a visit to Loki as well. Serious. Lived in Nairobi for 3 years and think it's time to see something different. Any suggestions? (hope this comment goes to your e-mail account too).

I spent my 25th birthday at Kate's bar in November 1995. Next door to the U.N. OLS camp, where I stayed. Great times, its funny how small commforts like a cold beer or 10 make you feel. I spent most of my time in Africa in southern Sudan. I remember an incident when an African counterpart of mine blitzed a thatched toilet mud hut with half a can of Doom!! Ten minuets later he payed the price when lizards cockroaches, spiders, scorpions rained down from the thatch during his private moment. We about it laughed later. When I saw him come running ithought we were under attack.

LOL. I was warned by some of the guys to avoid spraying the thathced roof for that very reason... although the thought of scorpions raining down on me during the night was spooky enough!
