We stayed in that cave in Feb 2012 and it was awsome fun.
Not so much fun in winter, I think.
There is a 4x4 trail that runs past it, to the top of the hill and then down the other side ( proper 4x4 only )
That photo of your dad with the hobie, where was that taken ?

Pic of my dad taken at Kromme River at Cape St Francis. Above the bridge.

Hi Riaan. You look like my Boet Dougie's best friend a few years ago. He stays in Lorraine. If so, there is a place for you to stay in PE at my spot, with lots of Dop and Tjop and fine red wine. PM me please.

Been speaking with Goose this week.

Looks like the two of us are off to Europe for the week next week.

Bit of practice and testing various types of comms.

Pics later.

Ek het 'n plan.  :deal:

So ruk voor julle trip gaan haal ek die Walvis en sort hom mooi uit. DAN RY EK HOM GKG TOE in Maart, net om seker te maak als is reg, en besorg hom terug, betyds vir die trip. Die manier weet jy daar is nie worries nie  :ricky:

Well, Goose and I went to France and Belgium on a shake down and check it out trip to see some battle fields and grave yards..... as well as a load of other great stuff.
He is busy writing up a ride report as I type on here as well.

What I did get to realise is that a good buddy with similar interests to you is vital on a trip like this.

Both Goose and I like to stop, take pics, talk to locals and learn a bit on the ride.

The other thing was that I discovered just how awesome it is to have radio communications.

That transformed the ride for us, I had never had comms before.... they will be a must on all future rides.


A couple of pics too.


I managed to score some number plates for my mad and ever increasing collection.

Belgium




France



A local one from Andy who loaned me a radio (I have now bought on as well)



Saw some interesting window dressing.



Coffee anyone ???




How many beers do you need ?



And of course nothing like a BIG BAKKIE.....  Toyota Tundra
