Day 1 14 December 2013 Walvis Bay to Stampriet - 568km
Stopped for a water break in the Kuiseb Canyon before tackling the awful section of road between the Canyon and Solitaire. I dont know what it is about this section of road but it always gets me worked up although I have rode it about 50 times already. Whenever we ride this road we always stop here for a break and a bit of a chat before we proceed to Solitaire and also on the way to Walvis Bay.

Arrived at Solitaire and stopped for fuel and something to eat before proceeding to Stampriet. Solitaire has the most delicious apple pie that you have ever tasted and is a must stop destination.

After a long first day ride I arrived at Gondwana Kalahari Farmhouse in Stampriet where I will sleep for the night. Tent erected kit removed and ready for a good nights rest.

The end of the first day, everything went well with no incidents.

Nee man, tussen jy en Schalk met julle Nambi rondgeryery maak julle nie mooi met 'n man nie.  My sleutelbord is al nat gekwyl.

En terloops, moenie ons 'n rat voor die o probeer draai nie: 6100 km is 3790 myl  >:D   :lol8:

Guys I want to apologise for not posting again. I was called up for a Oil Rig project in Koega, Port Elizabeth. I got the call at 08:00 and checked in at Walvis Bay International 11:00. I did not even got a gap to have koffie this morning. The project duration is only 28 days which means 24/7, but I will try to post in the evenings.

Day 2 – 15 December 2013 Stampriet to Askham - 498km
Woke up to this awesome view.

(http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l598/cjsnyman/A%20Journey%20of%20a%201000%20Miles/DSCN5440-1.jpg)

Had some koffie with rusks and packed up. Said goodbye to Stampriet and proceeded on my way.

(http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l598/cjsnyman/A%20Journey%20of%20a%201000%20Miles/DSCN5447.jpg)

On my way to the Rietfontein border post I came across this awesome creature. When I first saw it, it was walking across the road, but as soon as I came closer it stopped and pretended to be dead.

I cannot get enough of the surrounding landscapes, you feel very small when travelling through these areas. Makes you appreciate life again.

(http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l598/cjsnyman/A%20Journey%20of%20a%201000%20Miles/DSCN5454.jpg)

It was such a great opportunity that I had to do this trip. I just had to take a selfie to make sure that it is actually me doing the trip.

(http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l598/cjsnyman/A%20Journey%20of%20a%201000%20Miles/DSCN5455.jpg)

Arrived at the Namibia side of the Rietfontein border post, not much infrastructure. I suppose you don't need much.

(http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l598/cjsnyman/A%20Journey%20of%20a%201000%20Miles/DSCN5456.jpg)

(http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l598/cjsnyman/A%20Journey%20of%20a%201000%20Miles/DSCN5457.jpg)

The SA side of Rietfontein border post, it is a bit more modern. Unfortunately not more efficient than on the other side, however I have been to worse border posts.

(http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l598/cjsnyman/A%20Journey%20of%20a%201000%20Miles/DSCN5459.jpg)

As the day grew older I had to start looking for a place to stay. Rode to Askham only to find out that there aren't any camping sites. The friendly guy at the garage then directed my to the Molopo Lodge. The lodge is about 15km from Askham and about 1km off the main road.

What a lovely place to camp.

At R 150.00/night it is a bargain, you get an under roof stand with a wash basin, private ablutions, swimming pool and a fully licensed restaurant. You can even get braai wood, meat and petrol. I will definitely stay over again so should you if you are in the area.

Day 3 – 16 December 2013 Askham to Hartbeespoort Dam - 893km
This was the longest distance that I ever done in 1 day, needless to say that my ass was numb when I eventually arrived at Hartbeespoort dam that evening 22:00. Fortunately the next day's trip is only a short distance.

The dreaded road between Askham and Van Zylsrus (I farken hate this road, like wise the Solitaire road).

I was so gatvol of sitting that I did not bother to stop and take decent pictures. So I thought I would make up at the filling station in Mafikeng, did not really succeeded, but there are pictures nonetheless.

Day 4 17 December 2013 Hartbeespoort Dam to Boksburg - 171km
I wanted to ride through the tunnel as this is where I spent a lot of my childhood. Fishing in the dam and the river on the dam wall side. Also visited the snake park frequently and had to blow the horn while passing through the tunnel. It was fun as kids to have dad blow the horn going through it.

I just had to turn back and go check this place out. It is an African Craft market just before you get to the dam wall.
