Stopped briefly @ the one lookout point, when this one RASTA Dude really wanted a photo next to Andy. ;D ;D

From here, "Vlam" & myself thanked Andy for a wonderful ride & then started making our way back home.

Have never done a video upload onto YouTube before.....but seen as though I have posted all my photos....& then the screenshots I extracted from the video footage I shot.....I think I will just have to complete the whole package & make a plan to get a short video together as well. ;) :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

Will just have to first figure it out & then make a plan. ;D

Final section we did was take the Dagbreek road past the Eskom Wind Turbines & then onto Ocultdale road. Both Vlam & I said our goodbyes & part ways just after Contermanskloof road, where he turned right towards T/View & I hit a left towards D/Ville.

Thanks again to all for a really Gr8 day's ride.
