Very enjoyable read Allen  :thumleft:
I ran some of those roads, slept over at Ourab dam etc also in 2012.

 :puke_l:
Worst camping meal  . Canned chicken mixed with provitas   :lol8:

Yip wasn't the best of meals, all though it didn't taste too bad, think those cold ones may of helped to numb the taste some what. Pity we missed each other. Ourab dam a beautiful place, have always wondered if they allow boats on it, as i think it would spoil the serenity of the place. glad you enjoyed, the RR. Some photos most prob brought back some memories.

Daai CANNED hoener met provitas (van alle moontlikhede) het my koue rillings gegee (wie het dit uitgedink), wat het jy gerook, of gedrink om daaraan te net te dink??

Maar die 'n uitstekende report (behalwe vir die hoenner) en ek het al meeste van daai plekke raakgery met 'n cage (ongelukkig) maar beplan my trip, nog vir die jaar met die bike. Waar kan 'n mens geblikte hoenner koop, weet iemand.
Sodat mens die plek kan vermei.

Being a Dinosaur myself......

Thanks for a great RR and the awesome pics... :thumleft:

You see, so the two moerse strong dinosaurs will greet a fellow dinosaur  :3some: glad you enjoying the RR

Ja, T Rex, you qualify for an official invitation to join the next trip we're working on ... North Nam in Aug/Sept '14.

Very lekka RR. Had a good chuckle. Nice to see dawgs publicly admitting they use more beer than benzine on a trip.

It looked like a good idea at the time, think it was those bloody pain pills, as the cold ones normally give a ou good ideas, actually it didn't taste that bad, i think, maybe ok ok cant bloody remember, its the age thing. Kan darem nog onthou waar ons die hoener blikkies gekoop het en kan jou laat weet as jy braaf genoeg is. Glad you enjoyed the RR mate. Ons beplan om soos Ian gese het om in august/ september weer te gaan, maybe we catch you there, let us know when you plan on going. allen

Good one Al. All your trips sound like such a good jaul.

Thanks cous we do try to enjoy ourselves out there as we love the ride, scenery, but one also has to make time to relax a bit and let your hair down
