Justin's Log - Friday - Ficksburg to the Bash!

So, the next day we had a long hard route to tackle.

Our route was: Ficksburg, Ladybrand, Wepener, Zastron, Telle Bridge, Lundeans Nek and then the Bash.



The wind was astounding! Fortunately from the left back, but my word. My Arai peak was dragged big time! It was too tiring to really stop for too many photo's.

At Tella bridge we turned off to start on the dirt to Lundean's Nek, but then saw a new tar road going straight over the mountain. I figured it might lead the same direction, tried it and then noticed my folly. The tar road goes over the mountain (really steep and tight turns) and then just ends at 10 huts! They built a road for those 10 huts to be able to get back to Tella Bridge's shops and schools. Go Eastern Cape!

Anyways, went back to the gravel road and absolutely LOVED it. It was windy, tracky, not too technical, not too easy. We bumped into JourneyMan and the meat trailer on the way.

Around the tight turns there was some water and that's where we met Gary and his son Kenny. They saw us coming and waited at a turn to warn us of the slippery moss underwater. We saw some tyre marks which meant someone has already come off there.

At the nek Kenny and Gary went up to the rock (we were a bit too heavy to attempt it). What a photo!



The wind was quite bad again so we headed through to snow valley and then met up with the gang, and some well deserved beers!

Little did we know of the rain to come...dumdummmmDUMMMM!
Carpe diem!

And boy did it rain that night!! Besides Groenie's tent....I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with the way all of our tents dealt with the huge amounts of water that was thrown at us from the sky.

I'm pretty sure you have seen more than enough bash foties so I will just gooi a couple of our party the Friday evening.

Cream soda and tequila........











Volgende oggend na die storm



Wat de moer......JC kyk of daar skade is op sy 10 man tent nadat Dwerg amper die ding in sy hentie in geval het in die vroee oggend ure



Ons vriendelike bure

Justin's Log - Saturday - Bash weekend

Yes, not much more to say about the bash. It was great finally putting faces to avatars.  I met people that seem like real staatmakers! Salt of the earth...and then Stoetie comes roosting you full of mud!  ;D

What a photo! I'm sure everyone has posted theirs, but here goes...


Hang on...what is it that Stoetie is doing over there by the bikes?



Classic, the timing of my shot was totally by accident. Only after going through my photo's did I notice my Buttism gem!

That Saturday night we had a lekker braai. Kenny was turning IDR's chicken, seeing as IDR was getting ready for the speeches and prize giving.



The Sunday morning was chiiiillllyyyyyy! Man it was cold. The clouds cleared overnight, but so did the heat. Fortunately the sun came out!



We packed up our kit (and a bit of IDR's  ;)) and started on a 3 day journey that was, to put it mildly, EPIC!

Mountains, here we come...
Carpe diem!

So....ons het ernstige besigheid gehad om af te handel vir die dag.......en Brian wou dit oor en agter die rug kry.

Met al die reen van die vorige aand het ons besluit om eerder met die karre te ry en dit was inderdaad 'n goeie besluit want die pad was een modderbad.

Erens die vorige aand het kommunikasie vir 'n pot stront gegaan en ek wil plegtig om verskoning vra.....veral vir Veldtie, Douw en Swifty en wieookal wou saam gegaan het omdat julle nie geweet wat ons planne is nie. Jammer ouens.

RIP GLEN - the Arrow of Elliot - 02/02/12

The little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life
You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly
For grabbing the moment and living the day
It's been way too early that you were taken away

I never had the pleasure of meeting Glen but it is very clear to me how much he meant to everyone who knew him. The trip up to Bastervoet was emotional to say the least. I can only hope I have friends that grieve my passing and celebrate my life in the same way one day. Such was the inspiration of it all


KSSST!

I think all people would want to come to the end of their lives and feel they were appreciated. Glen was that certainly, and for many of us it was that one charactor trait I think... his total unselfishness.
