Great ride

did you manage to get a pic of the 'Burger Pond', that must have been worth a nice sum?
 ;D

Here you go. Price varies depending on the collector who wants this in his collection. Could be as little as R3500 (the weight in gold) or as high as R35k (highest number I heard to date)

Knormoer. Those details are not irrelevant at all. Thank you for sharing them. Your dad and your family will be in my thoughts. Sterkte.

Thx!

I am leaving for Bloem again on Sunday. Given that I am still a bit tender from the previous trip and subsequent kidney infection, this time I am using the Landy. However, ride we must so the GS will be on the trailer allowing me to explore the area when I get the opportunity.

And finally there is no more pain.

My dad quietly passed away this evening at 23:00.

Lekker slaap pappa!

Comment if I may.

I really liked your RR. The pics are stunning.

I do miss the human element with regards to your dad, the coin and the story behind it.

I will add when I find the words, that's a promise!

I too am keen to hear the rest as this is such a moving story/ trip .... in time it might well prove to be one of the most memorable for you.

Thanks for sharing.
