if Jim's going to arrive here at my place this afternoon/evening - maybe there's a few Wilddogs that want to come over here for some drinks and some pool while we wait for Jim......... braai facilities are available  ............

if anyone interested ... send me a SMS (082) 410-15 (9) 0

No specific time or ETA yet.........  maybe we have a bit of a late afternoon braai etc...?

SMS from him a moment ago:

"Long story. Short version is wallet dropped out of pocket 1k from the game lodge I stayed at filled up with fuel in willow more and left the phone as security so they could charge it for me. All well. Have wallet. "

I was up early this morning calling the guest house I'd suggested he stay in in Willowmore asking if they'd seen him. The lady tracked him down to a guest farm where he had stayed the night but there is no cell reception. So at least I knew he had a good sleep. His Dad called this morning as he'd also not heard from him.

Flying solo and wanting to get away from it all can be a las when others are living ones joirney vicariously through technology and forums.

I wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost

That's the thing one remembers about a trip... the interruptions that make the journey. Thanks for the update and good to hear he is OK.

I'll get a few beers.........  we're probably going to light the fire for a basic braai.........  so here's hoping our friend the S/Easter will die down a bit.....  :patch:

Pool nice and blue... warm water..... sunshine..........  I'm sure Jim will be able to send his mates a pic or two that would make them drool!   >:D

Yes I just bumped into him @ Barrydale he would have left there about 15H30 for CT via Montagu & Worcester. Long ride for him still and a bit of wind but he'll be fine.
Bikes looking good Jup and looks like he's having a whale of a time!

Good news guys. Thanks. He's going to be knackered, but it was always going to be a push getting back in two days with some detours. All that matters is that he gets home safely.

Kamanya, if you hear from him, tell him to just take it easy  :thumleft:

His battery is low, so I told him to turn off 3G. I can't seem to be able to track him anymore. Does find-my-phone need 3G?

I think it turned off the whole data connection, which is what you'd need for tracking.

Said he cmae via Rooiberg, Jup. And lost his wallet but found it again but lost some time.
His cell battery was almost finished and they didn't have a USB port at Jam Tarts.
He used my phone to call Goose - riding back I felt bad because his wife was also calling and I should have told him he's welcome to use my phone to call her but didn't think of it.
He'll be fine - there's not reception everywhere on the R62.

Rooiberg ? Means he must have come over Cloetes as well. Hell, he's been riding wide. Can't wait for his part of the RR.
