Title: R354...and a bit
Post by: Mungo Park on September 30, 2008, 03:33:49 pm
it was one of those days,the wife,kids and work made me look at my map and I decided that it was time for a little r&r.i took the r345 from start in Ceres to Kleinsee.I left at about 4 in the morning,needless to say Ceres was farken freezing and i continued to be frozen till about 11.

The distance was substantial,but the combination of Jamesons and regular stops took the frost off my front teeth ::)

I  had to get permission to enter Kleinsee as I needed get some supper at the local Spar and to fill up just in case Koinaas did not have..Tday's riding was great,never rushed and my tent at Noup was met with vigour after some whiskey and supper..that was the end of day one,here is a couple of pics,I ll post day two a.s.a.p. :)
