Right, die storie het in 2011 begin, toe ons ry groepie Lesotho toe is, het Michelle net so 2 maande geken... en het haar belowe sal haar ook eendag gaan sneeu wys... en 2013 is die jaar!  ;)

Die 3de Julie, het ons die bevestiging gekry van Sani Backpackers dat hul plek het, en die aand skryf ek Die Groot Rooie af!? Nou is die hele trip op ys, no pun indended... Besluit by myself gaan die trip doen...  :deal: sal al die admin uitsorteer, nuwe fiets kry, en fiks genoeg wees! Elke week getrou physio oefeninge gedoen...

Die week voor die tyd is Michelle so opgewonde en ons skaf warm klere aan, extra slaap sak, die pienk mus en en en... Donderdag aand pak ons baie vinnig... so dat ons nog n paar episodes Big Bang Theory episodes...want ons kan nie slaap nie...

Die volgende oggend 4h45 op... 5h10 panniers en bokse op, die eerste keer dat ek met sulke goeters ry!! En so 5h20 is ons in die pad.  :ricky:

Sani (2).JPG

En van Galloolies begin die so fyn mis reen...alles is fine maar die sproei van die trokke maak dinge nat.. stop om reen jasse aan te trek...

Stop op Villiers vir Koffie en n Wimpy breakfast, en almal kyk ons aan of ons mal is...

Sani (3).JPG
Sani (4).JPG
Lekker nat man!!!

En van daar steeds in die reen seker vir nog so 45 min na n uur...

Op Harrismith stop ons by die Engen vir n bene rek... en raai wie kry ons daar?! Hein, Flip en Karl met hul pillions... Arme Michellie kry koud en ek organise gou warm water vir haar warm water sak... woeps, onder die baadjie in... groet die S groep, en daar ry ons...Oliviershoek pas her kom ons!

Gelukkig is die Military Fuel Tanker n GSA en die slegte pad langs die Sterkfontein dam is soos n gravel highway!

Oliviershoek pas

Sani (8).JPG
Sani (9).JPG

Van daar pop ons gou in by Little Switzerland, die eerste keer wat ons altwee daar is...

Sani (13).JPG
Sani (14).JPG
Iemand kry lekker koud...

Van daar stoot ons deur Winderton tot op Mooi Rivier vir nog n Wimpy Burger... en raai wat... dit reen weer.... :toothy11:

Vandaar Nottingham toe, en daai +-70km grond pad na Himeville toe..

alwyn_gs I am sure we passed you on the side of the loteni road, we had just come out the valley - 3 KTM's and Yamaha we were pre running a route for Alfie Cox's weekend. Our Yamaha boy had a fall down the road dislocated his shoulder. Hope you enjoyed the Loteni Road very scenic road and well done for going up SANI on the BMW.

@ BIGMAC, yes it was the missus and myself... and BIG THANK YOU to the one oke warning us on the corner!!! The road was more enjoyable that Friday...

@ Outthere, it was lekker busy on that road, friday...

@ Hondsekierie, is net so bly... Michelle was so opgewonde om die trip te doen, en die teleurstelling so groot gewees het as daar nie was nie... en dis ook n vergoeding dat sy so maaoi uitgehou het Vrydag in die reen...

En so begin ons die grondpad aan te durf... die fotos doen nie die gladde pad justice nie... en hier en daar is sulke rooi grond patches klei wat lekker besig was, so 2 close calls gehad, but we survived!!! Het ons so 3 ure & 45 min gevat om tot by Sani Lodge Backpackers te kom...  ;)

Onroute, het gereelde stoppies gemaak... net bietjie rus...

Sani (21).JPG

Sani (24).JPG

By die back packers ge-arriveer seker so net na 18h00...daar gestop, en ingeboek. Het die eerste aand n dormitry kamer gedeel met 2 ander persone.

Dit was aandete tyd, en n lekker bord kook kos is opgedien, lekker hoender, rys en groente. Het geloop soos n jet... lekker bord kos na n lang dag!!!  :P by die tafel sit ons aan saam n New Zeelande paartjie wat ons net voor Harrismith op die N3 gesien het. En ruil stories uit terwyl ons aandete geniet...

Het gaan afpak, en n lekker warm stort gaan vang. By die Backpackers is daar n gemeenskaplike sitkamer, very cosy! Kagel en al. Daar ontmoet ons n Suid Afrikaner wat in Belgie studeer en n Australiaanse girltjie... en begin lekker kuier oor n koppie koffie.

Moet se was bietjie bekommerd oor die weer... daar was baie mis in die lug. was bang dat daar nie sneeu gaan wees die volgende oggend nie.   :lol:

Die aand lekker warm geslaap. Die dormitry gedeel saam n duitser, en die Australiaanse girltjie.

En vroeg die volgende oggend word ons wakker en kyk vir die...
Sani (25).JPG

Het opgesaal, die panniers is gepak en netjies in die backpackers se sitkamer gestoor. Ontbyt gaan nuttig en is grenspos toe...

Net na die golfbaan, is die area bietjie gebrand... regtig hartseer, maar tog mooi die wit berge en swart veld..

Oppad grens pos toe....

Moerse traffic jam op ICY CORNER!!!! Die pad is gevries... werk ons deur die verkeer tot voor... net toe ons stop... probeer n Pajero om gaan... raak weg om die opdrande... en hier kom die Pajero terug gely... soos jou Match box karretjies op die teel vloer toe ons mamma's & pappa's vir ons gesorg het. Was regtig SCARY!!!  :unsure:  En toe weet ek ons gaan laank wag...

Sani59.JPG
Sani60.JPG

Het die fiets veilig ver gestop... en ons het om gestap en gaan kyk... hoe die 4x4 stoei...

Daar was n vriendelike oom in so swart Jeep... met die regte tools - YS Kettings!!! Hy het die draai so twee keer gery, die ys gebreek...  :pot:  en van daar het die "slimmer"(Disco's 4/5, Mercedes GL, en Toureg)  paw by paw's begin opgaan... Die Landy's 110, Rangers, Hilux's, Cruisers, Safari's self 2 x Condors(!?) is in 2de, low range met n gejuig uit... great fun...

Meanwhile...
