And last pics, dropping down the hill to the gamtoos valley.

Thanks to you all for sharing this ride with me and to those I chanced to meet along the way. You all played your part to make this another good one.

I arrive safe home and am relieved to find my son and the Little One had not throttled each other while we were away.  :3some:

It is great to see that the river actually flows through the Langkloof, it is almost always dry when I ride there, looks impressive  :thumleft:

Are we gonna drink some coffee later? I'll make ;)

Back home after a very wet ride... and a chance meeting on the road that would turn an otherwise ordinary ride into a memorable one.

Mooi RR, en laat mens verlang na ry op ons lekker ou paaie.

Van rook gepraat, kyk asseblief op Youtube na Thys die bosveldklong se rook/rokers. Skreeusnaaks, spesiaal vir ouens wie se pakkies so 3siggies op n slag offer. :pot:
