A few days up North ---
« on: March 25, 2013, 09:38:09 pm »
Dakota and i were fortunate enough to visit one of our favourite spots up North just outside Vaalwater that we use as a base for our rides up there -- ::)

Day one we just chilled and relaxed in the camp. Watched the sun set and rise again like it can only in the bush--














Our steeds for the ride ahead--

Game everywhere--







Why i go to the Waterberg -- This  ::)







All in all a awesome week end of just chilling and riding -- need to go soon again -- something about the bush --it puts one in contact with your inner self ::)

Where exactly is this base camp in Vaalwater?
You know you've landed with the wheels up when it takes full power to taxi to the ramp.

Thanks J, but I learned the Stand up, Look up and go from you, and learned a lot of other stuff from M,  enjoying the riding much more now than when I use to scream in my helmet.... :thumleft:
