When we get to the bridge, the water is flowing strong. That is not so much the problem. The surface of the bridge is slippery as hell.

So when our friends in the 4x4 arrive, we decline the invitation to cross over. This decision is confirmed as the right one when a cyclist walks across, carrying his bike and nearly puts it down with the slipping and sliding. And then there was that step down when the water came up to his knees.

So we head back to the restaurant to collect our meat.

Where did you pack the mountain biker in your panniers. Wonderful idea to take one with so that they can walk through the causeways

And also for Murphy, you know, will need it for venturing into the unknown, giving up the comfort of the Mother Ship and the nimbleness of the 650 for.................... ???

If the man questions his own sanity in this decision making process..... what must we think?????

Kak funny.


The first time I met him in Swartberg Pass and he executed this maneuver in reverse to dismount, I thought he was going to donner off the cliff. It is very unnerving the first time that you see it, especially with the bike loaded like a trade camel.

I am trying to remember what they charged us for our braai packs (it was very little) but we got a BAK full of meat. It was ridiculous.......what a bargain. And lekker meat.

I'm hoping that advwannabe has photos of this heap of meat, if we can stir him from his slumber.

We were invited by the other 4x4 enthusiasts to join them for a braai. A great time was had by all. We had made some amazing new friends.

What an amazing starry sky in Gamkaskloof.

Nee wat ou Dwerg, jou naam is veilig, hou dit maar. Die man het heeltemal verdwyn. Ek wonder of die "Beast" hom nie per ongeluk ingesluk het nie, siende dat die man skaars groter is as 'n appetiser.

Kry ook geen reaksie op sy RR wat hy begin het nie:                        :xxbah:
