Looking good! Let us know next time you there and I will bring all the local dogs to come and visit!  ;D ;)

And have a lekka ride and braai! :thumleft:

Ok, looks like we'll be down again 15 - 17 June...

Do you guys want to organize a braai and camp-over and whatever for anyone interested in a day/weekend out...
We can do a good ride also if wanted...   

;D

Koos, buddy, what will we do without you?  Seriously!  We'll have to make another date... maybe after Amageza!  ;D

Let's plan to make it work! :thumleft: (Will plan work around that weekend!)

Was thinking of bringing the smaller bikes with. My DR 650 and Jana's 250 Djebel. ;)

I reckon a sleepover is a must! :thumleft:

Will finalize details closer to the time! ;)

Terrific, we have a huge lawn, and a big bathroom everyone can share... For those with serious bone aches, their is a caravan...
The braai area is fantastic, and our neighbors have fish in the dams... :)
Will be wonderful to see you and Jana again... And the rest of the gang...

I have manipulated my work roster as such to be off duty that weekend! :thumleft:

We can discuss details closer to the time. :)

Let me know if we can assist with some DIY duties on the farm. I can bring tools as well. :thumleft:

Heheheheeee, no trees have to planted in square holes, otherwise their roots grow in the shape of the round hole...
The larger the root base, the stronger the tree... The sooner the roots escape the original hole, the sooner the tree shows real growth! 
The only thing you plant in a round hole is a bonsai!
