Title: A few days up North ---
Post by: blazes on March 25, 2013, 09:38:09 pm
Dakota and i were fortunate enough to visit one of our favourite spots up North just outside Vaalwater that we use as a base for our rides up there -- ::)

Day one we just chilled and relaxed in the camp. Watched the sun set and rise again like it can only in the bush--

Thanks J, but I learned the Stand up, Look up and go from you, and learned a lot of other stuff from M,  enjoying the riding much more now than when I use to scream in my helmet.... :thumleft:

Where exactly is this base camp in Vaalwater?

A place called --Rock Lodge -- 7km out of Vaalwater and on the gravel road that leads to Rankin's Pass or Bakkers Pass --depending if you go left or right and the best riding North of Vaalwater towards Marken etc -
