Venue was awesome.

Only a few dogs played on the vast field available though. Pity only a few dogs doesn't know when to stop.... :pot:

Not talking partying here. That went full blast! :biggrin:

"Hou my dop and check die move..." didn't happen much. :patch: Farking responsible Wild Dogs! >:( :biggrin:
Praat jy dalk van my hier?
Indien wel, ga kak! Ten minste het ek nie geval nie, en getry drag. :3some: 8)

just to keep you informed...

the moment we parked our bikes at the bash... we realized our tent poles found their way through a black hole into the next universe...

looking back at our photos from a roadside picnic at Barkley East... the black hole evidence is clear:


So n boer maak n plan... en roep n engelsman






thank you eastern cape flora! worked like a charm.

not really... we camped there because of wind shelter... and it also kept the frost off our tents and gear.

My fourth national bash.
I only decided the Mondeynight before the bash to go and Bie was so kind to invite me to stay over at his
place in Jansenville. Stoetie and Snafu invited me to ride with them from there on the Fridaymorning.
For some reason I was not excited as always but the fever quickly caught me as soon as I was on the road.
I had a mere 450 kms to do to Jansenville.

Between Kleinberg and Brandwag. A dirt shortcut on the way to Oudtshoorn.



The Hartbeesfoteindamwall.



I had to stop at this spot before Oudtshoorn where a friend of ours was murdered in a senseless accident a month ago.
RIP Hugo :'(



The red hills of De Rust.



Had a bite to eat in De Rust and then Meiringspoort.





This bike says he has had his fair share of rallies in his life. We must enjoy the bash. :mwink:



I take the dirtroad to Willowmore and as allways I do it too fast in the beginning and one of the many drifts catches
 me out!!! :biggrin:
After that it turns into a "blommetoer" speed!! :mwink:
Close to Vondeling.



This guy said thanks for the invite but he heard Snowvalley is cold and seeing he is coldblooded he will skip the
bash thank you!!



A fillup in Willowmore and I am off to Jansenville.
They had rain not so long ago.



I stop at Miller.

To the absent petrol attendant:
Fill her up with 95 unleaded please,
The answer in my head :Sorry sir we have'nt had that spirits here since 1969!!!
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xtbrf_eagles-hotel-california-live_music



Can someone please buy this place and open a pub and campsite here!!! :deal:



Imagine sitting on that stoep with a cold one in hand and you watch the bikes rolling in.









On the road to Klipplaat.



My second time in Klipplaat and nothing has changed :eek7:



This is what happens when a bee zaps you!! I did not feel it until I noticed my watchstrap is a bit too tight!!



I decided to take a ride through Klipplaat but quickly decided agianst it.
Jirre wa hou hulle nie betogings nie!!! :biggrin:
Looks like the whole town was there!! :mwink:





From there to Bie's house was only 40kms. I have met Bie only once in my life and we only spoke about 20 words.
We spent the evening talking like old friends  who have not seen each other in a while.
Bie and family thank you for the great visit. Hope we will do so again.

Now I have to work!!

nie te veel op die bash geneem nie. Sondag oor Tiffindale se pad gery na Naude's neck. Nog so bietjie sneeu op die berg.

Some of my pics ....

Stopover at the Winburg hotel

Gypsy Jay overcooked the corner - literally. Leaving a veldfire in his wake after ramping into the dry veld
Lunch at Thaba Ntchu - slow but very nice
The view from the Black Mountain hotel
On the road
The pastel houses of Barkey East - stunning
