Title: 2011 EC Wild Dog Bash - the Report Back
Post by: Watty on May 15, 2011, 04:18:52 pm
Ok. just made it back from one of the best bashes ever!  Will give more shortly ... but I am sure someone else can get things started.

We were 65 dawgs in total (or at least that was the number of names entered in to the price giving draw) at the 2011 EC Bash.  A special word of thanks to all those persons and businesses that donated the prices,  Much appreciated!
Would have been a few more, but last minute business commitments prevented a dog or two from exercising his right to pure adventure.  

Then there was also the misfortune of Big Dom that en-route came off very hard - a mere 19 km from the bash site, breaking his right wrist badly and ending up in a PE hospital later that night. I also learned that if a hospital advertise that it has a 24 hour casualty emergency section, do not take it for granted.  We had to transport poor Big Dom with all his troubles 1st from the Kareedouw Hospital to a new suggested one in Humansdorp - why? - sorry the x-rays do not work after hours.  Same story in Humansdorp - doctor available, but no x-ray facilities at that time.  Got Bog Dom eventually sorted out and examined properly in Jeffreys Bay.  He was subsequently transferred from here to the St Georges Hospital in PE for surgery.  Truly trust the healing process is quick and without any problems.

Thsnk you Watty and Crew, another EC bash, more memories that will last forever!!

Passed some of the WC dogs in Barrydale this afternoon.
Packleader Snafu,Briv,Ball&Chain,Rynet,Rassie 800 and a GSA I could not put a name to
and to KTM 950s a couple kilos outside Bdale. My guess Scrat and Loki?
Hope everyone gets home safe. :thumleft:

Chris, jammer, ek sien die mense groet verskriklik en toe ek Barrydale uitgaan toe dink ek dat dit kan net jy en Amanda gewees het. Ek was so beitjie gedruk vir tyd, want moes my seun optel in Ashton :)

More candid shots ... enjoy

-  Tents were erected both on the open field to the west of the stream (photo 1) and adjacent to the stream under threes(photo 2),
-  The big yellow tent /marque was the official 'kuierplek' with bar close by (centre of photo 1)

As Watty said, the tents were basically on three different levels, due to terrain or other reasons..., but between some of us, the three distinct areas were later called:
Onderdorp,
Bodorp &
Skuldbult....... :-)

So The Greyhounds left GHT at 07h00 following the Throttle Jockey once again,we had 2 x new members along for their 1st Wilddog outing - Mattsa and Coenrad. Fortunately they have both been riding bikes for years and fitted right in! We had a long 10 hour day in the saddle but found some lovely new terrain and got a chance to get rid of extra weight in the form of spare front tubes we were lugging around the country side! :biggrin:
Puncture no 1 just past Alicedale

Now I know why you need a pink freckle. If you sleep with the dogs you get flees. I have it on good information that a threesome was going on in the tent that night when the lights went out. All this while you were suckling on mom. ( Shame poor pups)  :pot:

Watty, Uncle Al and the others who made the 2011 EC Bash another memorable event - THANK YOU for all your hard work!

I didn't take many pics  of the route from Kareedouw, as our group of George dogs were the ones that came across Big Dom just after  he had his accident on the uphill after the big river where those holiday houses are. I put his arm in a sling, gave him some glucose and seeing I was on the smallest bike  ;) I decided to leave Dirt Copper, McSpanner and DakarDog and ride as fast as I could to the bash site to get Watty to bring his Jeep to collect Dom. There was another rider (?) going towards Kareedouw who would ride there and try and call Watty. Riding into the setting sun on a track that was a bit "challenging" in places took quite a bit longer than I had first imagined. Came across 2 other guys - 1 of which had dropped his 1200GS on a loose rocky climb. They were OK, so I passed them and headed to the camp. I got there just as Watty was leaving and told him where BigDom was.

So now the other 3 George dogs were waiting with BD and I was seriously concerned about them getting back to camp in the dark without being hurt. I was hoping they might decide to camp at one of those houses on the river, but as it happened, they decided to head for camp. McSpanner is partially night blind and put his bike down 3 times and DC had a small off as well. Eventually they all arrived safely at the bash.  :thumleft:

It was great seeing the WC and EC dogs again and I finally had the honour of meeting the illustrious J-dog  ;D
After a chilled out Saturday, and a great night, I decided to join the WC dogs on the way back as the George dogs were going to slab it 230ks back to George and I didn't fancy that. Got up a 6 on Sunday after hearing my matress go psssssssssss........ at 1am and spending a sleepless night on the ground . We left around 7:30 and rode back to Karedouw. There was quite a bit of mist around and this time we were riding into the sun ::). Andy660 fixeda rear puncture on Saturday, but about 10 or so kays out, had another one. Some of us rode ahead to Kareedouw and waited. A call let us know that that Andy's bike was now on the trailer and on the way. We filled up with petrol and headed for Joubertina where we had a delicious breakfast at the Ark. After watching Andy take his tyre of for the THIRD time, a thin shortish nail was found sticking through the tyre that had previously been overlooked.
It was then on to Avontuur, Prince Alfred Pass, Kom se Pad and Knysna where we all re-fuelled at said our goodbyes. Due to all the delays, the WC dogs decided to cut out their planned dirt route to Calitzdorp and slabbed it through instead.
Thanks Andy660, Bradleys, Wayne H, PistonPete and Donovan for a nice ride back.

Packleader Snafu,Briv,Ball&Chain,Rynet,Rassie 800 and a GSA I could not put a name to
and to KTM 950s a couple kilos outside Bdale. My guess Scrat and Loki?
Hope everyone gets home safe. :thumleft:

Hello Chris , sorry I didn't see you , hope I waved ?  :3some:

Big Dom , good luck with the recovery. :thumleft: Sorry we didn't stay and chat when we came upon you, you looked like you were in good hands , and we were anxious to get going as it was getting dark and that track was not so nice to ride in the setting sun. There was rocks and sand and mud and water .  We were always going to slow or too fast. If you sped up for the incline/ sand you hit the water / mud too fast and vice versa. :biggrin:  Don't know how McSpanner ,Dakar Dog and Dirt Copper , as well as Ball and Chain them rode that track in the pitch dark.  :o Well done on Watty to ride hours in the dark to get you safely to the hospital.

The same track in the morning was a pleasure, and the views beautiful. Fortunately I missed the hectic 4x4 track that Andy660 , Piston Pete, Bradleys , DonovanKTM and AntonW them did on the way to the Bash  :o :o, they will show us pics when they come back , I'm sure , and respect to them  :thumleft:

What a lekker Bash Watty and the guys  :3some: :3some:

Thanks Big Al for the Big Tent and the burgers and the hot water and general help.  :3some: Thanks for eveyone who made it fun. Was good meeting Thump, J-Dog , J-Man and Glen Ink and others , real charming men   :mwink:

Was good chatting to friends , new and old. Was great to see Bessie again ,and meet her dad :thumleft: It was freezing cold Sat night in the tent, there was dew inside my tent, good thing I had a hot water bottle . Awesome location , great food, great company , all in all a very successful EC Bash.  :ricky:

How do you get to that conclusion ? ???

Look at the pic and open the link I posted   ::)




Oh, I get it.

You were saying it has no top teeth at all and since it has molars you lose. I thought the argument was over sheep having or not having top front teeth, so I lose too.

Some feed-back regarding Big Dom

I was in contact with Big Dom and all is positive. After coming off approximately 16h20 on the Friday afternoon, he eventually went into surgery on Saturday afternoon at  3pm for 2 + hours ... very happy with his orthopaedic surgeon, Dr Theuns Botha, who was able to pinned it all together again ... his wrist was pretty well shattered and out of alignment!  Dom is now back home in G'Town.  His bike is also safely back, albeit with a few more scratches and half a screen!  His only moan is that he missed another brilliant bash.

Speedy recovery and good luck with the healing processes.  :thumleft:

This was my first Bash, and Watty, thanks mate, I think you and Uncle Ed did a great job in organising a GREAT event. I certainly hope I'm still around to enjoy the next EC Bash. To my riding mates from PE, Waman and Nerf af and from Jay Bay, Skipskop and Dreyer with pillion, thanks for the good riding company to the bash and back home again.
some of my pics follow. Trying to download them, sorry

FIXED!

So Glen Ink does that mean you lost your bet ?  :mwink:

Hi to all that attended.
Thanks Watty for selecting this venue - think everybody enjoyed it as well as the ride there.
Great to have seen some "old" faces (LGF, TR MacS, DCop, Left-Less, Horsepower - to only mention a few).
Just as good to have met many new friends(Too embarrassed to start mentioning names as I can not remember them all).
It was a special moment to have met a dynamic person like Honey Badger and Bessie after having follwed their RR's religiously each evening.
Hope to see you all at other Bashes.

Will mostly attempt to let the pictures do the talking.
Providing the tent and burgers have been a pleasure. The idea of the burgers was to lighten the load on the further travellers. Who feels like preparing a meal after + 600 km in one day? The overwhelming response (69 burgers) tells me there is a need for a prepared meal arriving at the venue. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, I ran a bit late.
Will post 2 video clips as soon as I have figured out how to edit and post it.
Great weekend ! ! :thumleft: :biggrin:

The dreaded slab ! ! !
 Then the venue.

A midday dash to the EC Bash was way too short.  With a longer, and tougher, ride than expected, we arrived with little daylight hours left so sadly only had about 45mins to say hi to all at the bash.  At least I managed to meet GlenInk!!
Was really a nice ride.... although being on the back of Crab's 1200 was a bit hairy at times!!!!  
Well done Crab,,,, great riding!!!!  
Wish I'd had my camera with me .. could've got some really great pics.
Glad to see everyone had a good time!

Big hello to you Bigdom. Hope you heal soon. Went to St Georges on arrival in PE only to hear you were at home. Some photos of your bike during the recovery. Seems to me that Glenink faked a friendship with you- it was the HP2 exhaust that was the main attraction!  :ricky: Oops! :pot:
Will pm you next time I ride your valley to set up a meeting.

Watty and his crew !
Many thanks for an awesome bash.
Sign posted from Kareedouw , some 35 km from the bash.

To the guys in the WC Team , thanks for all coming along and making it an awesome ride.
Although we slit our team in two , some doing the route all the way through the Baviaans and some taking the short cut on a private road,
The Baviaans team had a hard day ,much longer and having to ride the final leg to the camp in the dark and not on a very good road, glad u all made it safely.

The short cut was only 25 km , but took 4 hrs on the big 990`s, well done guys,

I only managed the first 10 km , but I thought I was loozing it , my bike just couldnt get good traction at km 7 , and so I hit a rock and had  fall.
When the Ldrover arrived , Wayne noted my rear tyre was flat, Fark !They loaded my bike and had one hell of a rough route to tow my bike over.
How the bikes made it through without incident , gees I dont know
Even the riders waited at the top of this one really bad hill,to see how Leftless would make it up wth the Landrover , towing a Trailer , wth my XT660R loaded.

The road to the venue covered all the aspects you could think of:
1. The pebbles & holes uphill that claimed many a customer.
2. Some twisties not to be taken lightly.
3. Serious down hills.
4. Sand and mud ( Why all the tracks through the ploughed land?)

Somebody lost this on the dirt road about 3km from the campsite.
Blue rubbery mat was found about 1 km from the chain link and the wet wipes. Link is for a 520 chain.
Check your kit  - might need spares in a breakdown that you don't have anymore.

Thanks for that update Watty. Kobus and his mate Rodney were true WD manly men and will get my vote on Wednesday for Mayor  >:D Kobus your own courage is a lesson - respect. Also thanks to the three EC WD boets an swaars who stopped to check I was ok and not going into shock with the prospect of missing the bash ... and also ensured I was medicinally hydrated  ;D  Shot Leftless, Edgy and others who recovered GSpot and returned her safely to me not too worse for wear. My own pilot error will see me 'pinned down' for a least six weeks. Remember there is no ATGATT for wrists  ??? the rest did its job perectly.

Below is a picture of the hard silver bracelet (angel ATGATT) I was wearing that took the lions share of the impact on one particularly sharp rock  ... without which I would have had lots more than three fractures! I was obviously not flying faster than my Guardian Angel.  :angel11:

Hey Drazil – doesn’t look like it but I’m sure we could open bottles with that back bit – so there’s still some use to have BD around.  New beer caddy with built in bottle opener.  >:D
 
Get well soon BigD.


Watty, as always, a fantastic well planned event.  And again thanks from all the WC dogs.  UncleAl, those burgers were fantastic.  You’ve started something and might be called upon on all the other Bashes.  For everybody else involved in the planning a great venue – thanks.   :thumleft:


The WC dogs, it was great joining the old familiar group on an epic trip even though in a cage (my second favourite ride).  That little shortcut was quite interesting with the trailer and bike.  The LR might not be fast but will definitely get you there.

Little is said about some wonderfull - awesome  LANDROVER that went where a lot of KTM had a good workout with no problems at all. I must say that time after time i was supprized at how quickly the land rover and leftless caught up to us at different stops. Thanks everyone for letting me ride with you it was awesome. To Watty and the crew thank you very much for everything if one could not enjoy yourself there it would be your own fault. To Don good luck and a speedy recovery. Thanks everyone that attended it was great.

hey those that know me know I like to strip things down to check how they work (babes keep quiete  :imaposer:) ... well here is the FIXUS external rail pin system in place ... real Terminator stuff as one of my students said!  :o :o :o carbon fibre, titanium, and surgical stainless steel ... wiff allen bolts an all china.

[quote

I was in contact with Big Dom and all is positive. After coming off approximately 16h20 on the Friday afternoon, he eventually went into surgery on Saturday afternoon at  3pm for 2 + hours ... very happy with his orthopaedic surgeon, Dr Theuns Botha, who was able to pinned it all together again ... his wrist was pretty well shattered and out of alignment!  Dom is now back home in G'Town.  His bike is also safely back, albeit with a few more scratches and half a screen!  His only moan is that he missed another brilliant bash.

Speedy recovery and good luck with the healing processes.  :thumleft:
[/quote]

Thanks for that update Watty. Kobus and his mate Rodney were true WD manly men and will get my vote on Wednesday for Mayor  >:D Kobus your own courage is a lesson - respect. Also thanks to the three EC WD boets an swaars who stopped to check I was ok and not going into shock with the prospect of missing the bash ... and also ensured I was medicinally hydrated  ;D  Shot Leftless, Edgy and others who recovered GSpot and returned her safely to me not too worse for wear. My own pilot error will see me 'pinned down' for a least six weeks. Remember there is no ATGATT for wrists  ??? the rest did its job perectly.

Below is a picture of the hard silver bracelet (angel ATGATT) I was wearing that took the lions share of the impact on one particularly sharp rock  ... without which I would have had lots more than three fractures! I was obviously not flying faster than my Guardian Angel.  :angel11:

 The road from The Baviaans to Baviaans Kloof Kamp : The short cut " 25 Km , took us 4 Hours.
I got a puncture at around km 7 and unbeknown to me,I thought my riding was just deteriorating badly , until I clipped a Bush and a rock which sent me on a shortcut to the into the rocks.

(http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p131/hunday/EC%20Bash/1305288787470.jpg)

When the backup Landrover of Leftless  came along,WayneH noticed my rear wheel was flat,Very tiered ,we loaded my bike on the trailer and took the easier way to the kamp'

This track up the hill was hecktic, even the guys got off their bikes to come and see how Leftless was going to make it up the very rocky hill, with a trailer in tow ,loaded with a bike.
But as usual , Leftless just made it look like a piece of cake !

Finally , I got this Video to load.

Guys, Thanks for a lekker bash. Even though I came in late on Friday night, after falling twice in the terrible stretch from the river to the camp, and spraining my ankle, it was worth it. To kuir with the dogs is always special.  ;D

Thanks to Leftless and Andy and the Cape Crowd for taking me back to the tar road on Saturday. Much Appreciated. It's now 8 days after the bash, and even though I have full mobility of the ankle in the vertical plane, I still have pain moving it left to right in the horizontal plane.  ;)  By next week I should be my ownself again :thumleft:

Sorry about the off Mr Tweets, may you heal speedily.  But`, we did warn everyone what to expect  - that is to allow plenty of day-light time to do the 21 km from the turn-off - go look at http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=65209.msg1358889#msg1358889 (http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=65209.msg1358889#msg1358889)

Sorry for the late contribution guys but I unfortunately put the Dakkie down with dire consequences barely a week after the Bash.  Managed to do myself an open fracture of the left leg 8mm above the ankle resulting in 2 pins and a plate to be fitted, which will undoubtedly affect the Beemer's fuel consumption.  But after 5 days in hospital I'm mercifully back online - as Krukkewyn rather than Pikkewyn ..... !   The injury does not hurt as much as the thought of what I managed to do to my equipment though - my boot had to be cut open to get it off my foot which was at that stage sitting at right angles to my leg whilst the same fate befell my riding trousers.  More depressingly though - I fear the Dakar might be terminal.....

Reason for me detailing my misfortune on THIS thread is not only to make BigDom feel slightly better  but also because of all of the new friendships that I have forged on this, which was my first Bash.  To all the fantastic Dogs who had the misfortune of meeting me for the first time at the Bash - a moerse big THANX for all the companionship, fun 'n games and belly-aching laughter that I experienced.  I sincerely hope to see you all again soon.

You see, the value of such friendships are not lost on me because it is through this forum that I met and rode with such wonderful people like DirtCopper, McSpanner (and his lovely lady Ranel), Oom Pad and Dusty who were with me on my fateful ride and all of whom refused lo leave my side after the crash - without consideration to their own agenda's and possible discomfort. Their reassuring presence and assistance helped me to stay calm and focused in that dark hour or so until I got to the hospital.  And even then the medical staff had to fight them off, wanting to watch over me whilst in theatre!

Watty, to you and your team a very huge thanks for a fantastic weekend superbly organised.  Although this was my first, by all accounts you just manage to outdo yourself year after year.  If this is indeed so,  next year's could be SCARY dude!  I wish to apologise if McSpanner, DirtCopper and myself stressed you out by arriving so long after nightfall on Friday but we just could not leave BigDom alone on that mountain man.  I'm sure you'll understand.  Please feel free to ping me should you need a little sponsorship for next year’s OK?

To LetsGoFishing - pleasure meeting you and thanks for the ride there.  To GrysAlp and Horsepower, likewise in meeting you for the first time and the ride back.  To all my George Co-Dogs:   sommer weereens net 'n moerse dankie vir julle gesellige en grappige samesyn die naweek.

Belatedly, herewith some of my phodies:

Big Dom , good luck with the recovery. :thumleft: Sorry we didn't stay and chat when we came upon you, you looked like you were in good hands , and we were anxious to get going as it was getting dark and that track was not so nice to ride in the setting sun. There was rocks and sand and mud and water .  We were always going to slow or too fast. If you sped up for the incline/ sand you hit the water / mud too fast and vice versa. :biggrin:  Don't know how McSpanner ,Dakar Dog and Dirt Copper , as well as Ball and Chain them rode that track in the pitch dark.  :o Well done on Watty to ride hours in the dark to get you safely to the hospital.

The same track in the morning was a pleasure, and the views beautiful. Fortunately I missed the hectic 4x4 track that Andy660 , Piston Pete, Bradleys , DonovanKTM and AntonW them did on the way to the Bash  :o :o, they will show us pics when they come back , I'm sure , and respect to them  :thumleft:




What a lekker Bash Watty and the guys  :3some: :3some:

Thanks Big Al for the Big Tent and the burgers and the hot water and general help.  :3some: Thanks for eveyone who made it fun. Was good meeting Thump, J-Dog , J-Man and Glen Ink and others , real charming men   :mwink:

Was good chatting to friends , new and old. Was great to see Bessie again ,and meet her dad :thumleft: It was freezing cold Sat night in the tent, there was dew inside my tent, good thing I had a hot water bottle . Awesome location , great food, great company , all in all a very successful EC Bash.  :ricky:

Thanks to all my riding buddies for a lekker ride to and from the Bash :thumleft: :thumleft:


Hi there Rynet!

Was a sure pleasure meeting you at the Bash - not only because we happen to be colleagues but also as a co- Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance junkie!   :thumleft:

Enjoyed your Verneukpan article in the June Offroad & Adventure SA Mag.  Hope to see you again soon.

I have to say that the ride back from BigDom that night was the absolute scariest of my life!  And then I go and drop my Dakar a week later on a dirt road which, by comparison, was a paved highway smoother than hot butter 'n honey!!

Just goes to show - you just never now with this sport.....  :-\

Some feed-back regarding Big Dom

I was in contact with Big Dom and all is positive. After coming off approximately 16h20 on the Friday afternoon, he eventually went into surgery on Saturday afternoon at  3pm for 2 + hours ... very happy with his orthopaedic surgeon, Dr Theuns Botha, who was able to pinned it all together again ... his wrist was pretty well shattered and out of alignment!  Dom is now back home in G'Town.  His bike is also safely back, albeit with a few more scratches and half a screen!  His only moan is that he missed another brilliant bash.

Speedy recovery and good luck with the healing processes.  :thumleft:

Thanks for that update Watty. Kobus and his mate Rodney were true WD manly men and will get my vote on Wednesday for Mayor  >:D Kobus your own courage is a lesson - respect. Also thanks to the three EC WD boets an swaars who stopped to check I was ok and not going into shock with the prospect of missing the bash ... and also ensured I was medicinally hydrated  ;D  Shot Leftless, Edgy and others who recovered GSpot and returned her safely to me not too worse for wear. My own pilot error will see me 'pinned down' for a least six weeks. Remember there is no ATGATT for wrists  ??? the rest did its job perectly.

Below is a picture of the hard silver bracelet (angel ATGATT) I was wearing that took the lions share of the impact on one particularly sharp rock  ... without which I would have had lots more than three fractures! I was obviously not flying faster than my Guardian Angel.  :angel11:

Hi there Big Dom!

Glad to see you're OK and that you haven't lost your sense of humour Dude!  I sincerely wish you a speedy recovery and bettership.  Trust me - at this stage I feel your pain man!

As we were first on the "crime scene" I can confidently report that you were tough enough to still flash me the universal sign at the time, despite your obvious discomfort.....  !!

But you forgot to mention that we also ensured that we were sufficiently "medicinally hydrated" ourselves (just to take the edge off of course!)

Best regards man

Hey DD - So sorry to hear about your accident and indeed sounds like you are alot worse than me (I have another two weeks with the TV aerial on my arm!). I have good movement back in my fingers and can now flip the bird (the New SA peace sign) with the broken side too! Hey great pic dude - check the adrenalin and endorfin smile ... returned later with the Pethadine  :biggrin: Again many thanks to you dudes and Watty and Rodney who were proper meneers.  DD - hope to ride with you in the future and compare battle scars.  :thumleft:
