Ek ry Vrydag !! Watter paaie het julle gery......of watse roete ?   :ricky:

Ons het van Kononeiland af vertrek, deur Keimoes en regs op 'n grondpad Lutzputs se rigting, deur Noenieput, Koopan, tot by by Molopo Kalahari Lodge.

Dag twee van Molopo Lodge na Hakskeenpan, deur Rietfontein Grenspos, Aroab, tot by KoŽs.

Dag drie KoŽes, Keetmanshoop, D606 (ek dink) verby Visrivier Canyon tot by Ai-Ais vir ys, tjops en brandstof daarna tot by Gamkab.

Dag vier van Gamkab Wes langs die Oranje, deur die Sperrgebiet en oor die grens by Oranjemund, tot by Port Nolloth.

Dag vyf van Port Nolloth na Eksteenfontein ("shortest distance" op GPS gee vir jou 'n baie lekker tweespoor kortpad), Van Eksteenfontein bietjie rondgesoek en paadjie gekry wat deur Nababiep reservaat gaan tot in 'n verspoelde tweespoor/rivierloop wat weer Oranje toe gaan, tot by Oewerbos naby Vioolsdrif.

Dag ses van Vioolsdrif met Namakwa 4x4 roete deur Goodhope tot my Witbank (die lekkerste pad wat ek nog ooit gery het!). Slaap by Klein Pella.

Dag sewe beeline Upington toe deur Pofadder. Vorige keer eers by Riemvasmaak en Augrabies gedraai.

This is one of the things we came here for. Hartlief-skaaptjops on the rocks, and camping near the Orange.

The view the next morning, and one of my favourite pics I've ever taken. The Gamkab is spectacular, and the isolation eerie.

As jy mooi kyk op die Gamkab-foto sal jy die 5de bike agter die helmet op die 640 sien.  ;)

Lekker trip Avontier en kie!! Julle manne word nou al amper locals in daai geweste.

Haakskeenpan staan lekker vol water, die manne wat Speed-Week reel reken dit is 'n goeie ding, want die oppervlak word basies nuut oorgedoen en gekompakteer.

View from atop the tweespoor route from Eksteenfontein to Vioolsdrif, to the west of the Helskloof Pass. We were the first humans on this route after it has seen some serious floods recently. We were very glad to be on the 690s instead of the 1190/990s.
