Title: Memel with my besties
Post by: Noneking on April 18, 2021, 05:52:58 pm
Itís been nearly 2 years since the last trip with my best mates @Carlito  , @Ghato and Jean. Carlís 51st birthday seemed like a good excuse to arrange a proper trip.

This was going to be my first trip on the S. i spent quite a bit of time going through the bike in the last week or so before the trip. The last bits arrived in the days leading up to the trip and by Thursday night the bike was ready and packed to leave at sunrise Friday morning

Our route took us towards Barberton on the R40 and then up the pass towards the Josefsdal border with Swaziland. It was a cool overcast morning and we rode into fog/clouds in the mountain and it soon became clear that we were going to get wet.

First stop st the eureka viewpoint, but not much of s view

We did a very slow ride up the mountain with very poor visibility. We stopped at the turnoff onto our first dirt section of the trip and had small sip of sherry to heat our cold, wet bodies

This first part was the first gravel my wife accompanied me on following some advise from you and other WDs.
Very nice and scenic road. Memel still on the wish list.

Things are improving. The rooms we slept in were still in poor condition, but they are busy renovating the rooms adjoining the main building and will move to the rest once they are done.

Bar has been revamped. Food and service was outstanding.

That Heidi was a nightmare all weekend..... :peepwall:

It locked up under braking on dirt, was scary on the wet tar and overall just not a lekker feel. I will use it a bit longer as to not waste it though.... :pot:

Jis man, dis nou 'n gawe trip van 'n area wat my nog altyd oor laat oplees het. Ek moet nog daar uitkom. Reports soos hierdie hou die vlammetjie aan die gang.

Dit is goed om te sien Jean kon 'n lekker trip ry met my ou 1200.  :thumleft:  As 'n mouterhandelaar darem 'n bike meer as 'n jaar al het moet hy hom darem seker geniet en goeie diens uit hom kry.

Ek sien ook nou die ou se mountain bike Stravas is korter en minder intens as so 'n jaar gelede  :peepwall:

Had at least one other owner in between as well. I was there in Jan 2018 and had a lekker kuier with Chris, there were different owners when I was there in 2019

I heard chris was looking at options in namibia at some point but also heard he could not get shot of the hotel.

Memel at one point was going to be a huge eco area, unfortunately did not materialise.

Yes we had a chat with him when we were there in November. Hotel was already sold, but he was still living there until the Namibia thing materialised.
New owners got the property at les than 2/3 of the asking price I believe, but it has been terribly neglected and will take a bit of work and money to get it in good shape.
