Baie Nice RR. Jy het dit uitstekend aanmekaar gesit met pragtige foto's. :thumleft:

Die "MAS" net buite die dorp Kakamas waar julle Oujaars-aand deurgebring het is skaars 5km's vanaf my geboorte plaas. :'(

Ek "toer" baie lekker saam en sien uit na die res. :sip:

Jy het nie genoem nie, maar is daai foto in die "INTRO" waar die speedo op 222km/h staan op Haakskeenpan geneem?

Dankie vir die deel van julle epic trip. :)

motor I scrolled through my pocket atlas and noticed at this pace
traveling on the highway I won’t reach Port Elizabeth within this
life time and would actually die of boredom…"

Sorry if it seems a bit "light"... but at this stage my cellphone packed up, my camera was broken since Clarens, and the little pics we took was taken via Cellphone.. hehe...  ::) The trip took its toll.....

Day 13–Mosselbay to Cape Town (~417km) – “the conclusion”
And containing …
So it took me a month to write this report… so what happened to the “Free Musketeers” since the trip……?
This one is action packed, do not miss it!
How did Jim Morrison say this…”This is the end .. “
