Title: The Dinosaur and the Ghost Town
Post by: ALLEN I on October 10, 2017, 01:10:04 pm
The Dinosaur and the Ghost Town
                                                              Diepgezet: The return.
So here I is once again checking out how you “Ous” have like been riding you Boneys all over the show and ive been like stuck with the family “Gooites” “Gooites” so I was “Sommer Lekker” jealous of you “Ous” that I “Sommer” just like here and now decided I needed to “Gooi” my Ass in the “Saal” of my Boney and go for a “Lekker” cruise as well.
Now as the long weekend was coming up I kinda “Gooid” the idea in my “Kop” over a cold one or two to go back to that “Spook Dorp” that I “Kuiered” at last year. Diepgezet(As you “Ous” no that I dig my cold ones and for the new “Ous” on the site, now you “Ous someer” no as well.)
“Gooid” the idea at the Rug Rats and another “Goose” Natasha and they all schemed it was a “Lekker” idea as well.
So the night before we is gonna “Vertrek” on out “Moerse” journey we get all the kit together and as my daughter and new son in law “Gootes” is going up in a “Bakkie” cage thingy we “Gooi” our kit in it.

Then we sits and contemplates over a cold one or two about how “Lekker” this trip is gonna be and I “sommer” brag about the “Moerse” Famous Honda and all of the “Lekker” riding we “Ous” is gonna do. The feature “Skoon seun “ Jonty is “Lekker” jealous that he “Sommer” vows right there and then that he is gonna also “Koop” a DP Boney  so he can also cruise along with the Two “Moerse” strong Dinosaurs WD bikers “Ous”

Now we was once again is supposed to leave early, but “Nooit” the old “Kop” was not “Lekker” again as I scheme I had one or two too many cold ones and some hooligan juice too much.
So we get the Boneys gear  on as our own.

A “Ou would not scheme we had a “Moerse Kop seer” if you look at these two.
I think they is “Moerse” excited.

See my baby Rug Rat (Zannie) feels at least like her Old Man.

Although this one also looks too fresh for my liking.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Diepgezet2/Diep1%207_zpsgu0qsuxk.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Diepgezet2/Diep1%207_zpsgu0qsuxk.jpg.html)

We Goois our Boneys in gear and the cage is following us “Ous” as we hit the road.
First stop Cullinan then we was off to Bronkhorstspruit and then
We “Goois” a stop at this “Padstal”

Dam I bought a lotta “Gooites” at this possie.

We was not cruising on the highways as we wanted to see some scenery and to be able to have a cold one or two on route as my “Kop” was hurting again. Lucky my helmet was once again keeping it together. He he
We stopps to “Gooi” in some petrol in in Carolina and noticed one of the bloody spots had broken its casing so we quickly made a plan with cable ties.

There we go all fixed and so we could continue our journey,
Hows this for a “Lekker” sign?

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Diepgezet2/Diep1%2012_zpsj5vvl5m2.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Diepgezet2/Diep1%2012_zpsj5vvl5m2.jpg.html)

That energy “Gooit” looked very inviting, but by now my “Kop” was lots better.

Petrol in tanks, KFC in the bakkie and we is off to Diepgezet about 60km away.
The rain was starting to gently let us no its presence.
Some more “Lekker” scenery.

Albies running on 80 tar 20 off road so he lets down the pressure too 1.6 front and 1.8 rear
The wind is howling, its “Koud” so we hop on the Boneys and take off.

The scenery is breath taking, the road is wet and slippery, we don’t mind as this is what we came here for.

Albie follows me with the bakkie in tow, my daughter Zannie does not do too much looking as she does not like the steep slopes next to her, the goose “Natasha” behaves herself as well as this is her first sand riding as a pillion or rider, she has ridden tar on her own bike all of the time. (Yip no sand, as she says if she gets to sand she walks next to her Boney.) So a first time experience for Albie, Natasha, Zannie And Jonty.

To make things worse, nature decides to have some fun at our expense and gently does the rain start to fall.

Now my old Cous Bill P would of loved this section so I decides that I will dedicate these pics to him all the way to the bottom. Hehe

We take photos of our quest to go and find the cold ones so far far away so that you “Ous” can see we did not “Jok” about it.

We swam through shark infested waters.

We even were forced unmerciserraly to ride on this. (The Horror)

Then we had to head back again and face the dangers of the long long 8km trip back.

A fire had swept through here a week ago and one can see the damage it caused.

Then we go and “Verken” some more of the possie.
We crossers rivers.

Don’t know if what I said helped her. (I tuned her that if she did not move I was gonna leave her there.) See im a nice “Ou” I help people with “Gooites” Hehehehe

Which he agrees on. Hehe

Meanwhile we go on to verken a bit more but I first takes a photo.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Diepgezet2/Diep1%20194_zpsplxw2wyf.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Diepgezet2/Diep1%20194_zpsplxw2wyf.jpg.html)

 We follow the road, but its getting major worse as we go along, the bakkie is “Sukkeling” to clear some humps and “Gooites” then we catch a steep down grade section so I  tunes them to wait whilst we go and check the section out, I turn around but albert goes up a “Lekker” steep section, on his way back he “Donners” down, sorry no photo as him and his “Boney”  was up so fast I dident even get a chance to take a photie.
A view of the home made dam which supplied the mines shafts with water.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Diepgezet2/Diep1%20195_zpsmcjmf57l.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Diepgezet2/Diep1%20195_zpsmcjmf57l.jpg.html)

Up close.

We was considering going for a goof but decided against it as we did not see any life in the water.  Lucky for us as this water was used in the mines for cooling purposes in the shafts and such “Gooites”.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Diepgezet2/Diep1%20197_zpso3hcy7mr.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Diepgezet2/Diep1%20197_zpso3hcy7mr.jpg.html)

Whilst the kids and the goose buggered around in the church I went exploring.

Jonty locked the door and climbed out of the window.

And the workshop place as well.

He he. He was a “woes” and ran away from the Cow thingy
The club house was a bit of a disappointment as it has just change rooms and this small bar, ok I no they had tea and scons and “gooites” on the “Stoep” aswell, but still I expected better as the golf course was ranked 3rd beat possie to play golf is SA

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Diepgezet2/Diep1%20216_zpsoq4vhenk.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Diepgezet2/Diep1%20216_zpsoq4vhenk.jpg.html)

Then back to exploring the houses. We find this doll house built for the kids on one of the premises.

The day has been long and its starting to show, the woman are “Moeg”
Natasha is “Sukkeling “to climb on and off of the bike.

We still have to go and quickly “Verken” the school.

The tree in front of the school has tasted the fire.

Its getting late, the “Ous” and “Gooses” are “moeg” so we go back to our house. Albert and Jonty quickly reset the computer on the bike as it shows a warning light from falling down.

So Diepgezet is having a face lift, The Ghosts that haunt the place will soon be gone, As Allen says if he can finish restoring one or two houses a month and rent them out as permanent dwellings or as a place to get away to for the weekend or week or so it will be available to us “Ous” Prices are good.
Well with that said there was only one last thing to do before the ride back.
Visit the Waterfall, which we did.

Even old Jack is enjoying the ride.

We stop for a breather and of course a smoke break.

One of the little gems as we proceed forward.

And another, the views are breath taking.

But alas we soon part with this beautiful piece of country and have to realize we are once again in the rat race as cages swarm all over and the peace and solitude is shattered.

We stop and fill up and have a smoke break then we head for home.
Well that’s it “Ous” and “Gooses” hope you enjoyed the ride.

 :thumleft:

Howzit mate. Long version or short. hehe
Man Asbestos was slowly dying out and then they declared it as unsafe, hence S/A was still in production, in fact this particular mine Diepgezet was the last asbestos mine to close down. The miners etc all got packages and as it was a mine orientated town they got the marching orders. Interesting talk i had with the old head master, as we all were under the impression it only closed about 4 years ago. he in fact was retired and had a house there and also had to move, that was in 95/96 the water fall is man made and was blasted through the mountain as was another which for a while supplied Barbeton with water in the drought they had. There was over 100 kids in the school. Place was also name Msauli and one could even buy shares in the company. So yip a lot of dreams were shattered when they had to close, hence the "Ghost town" This of course is what i was informed about by the head master, as well a a lot of more interesting facts about the old town. (I take it to be reasonably accurate but hey the times and such could differ and in fact have differed according to other people)
