Alle goeie dinge kom tot 'n einde  :'(   :'(   :'(

It was cold and the plan was to leave at 7, then 8 and eventually we left about 8.30.  Still very cold.  On our way towards Patensie we saw various game, and some in-laws.

It was my 3rd time in the Baviaans.  They say once you drink the water of the Baviaans, you'll come back.

Darrel is coming back . . . .



Saying that, I want to state that I'll be back at the EC Bash.  It was nice to make new friends, see some old friends, and be able to ride my bike where I want.



Dankie vir Jup en sy span - ons maak weer so.

Dankie Dan.  Ja - hy was wel belese en 'n man vir wie ek baie baie respek gehad het.  hy het die geheue van 'n olifant gehad en het mens en dier respekteer.

Was ook lekker om jou te ontmoet - sien volg jaar.

Dorsland. 

Vanaf Cradock ry jy by die skougronde uit na Mortimer se kant to vir seker 4 kilos.  Draai dan regs oor die spoorlyn na Swaershoek en volg die pad vir seker so 50 kilos waar jy regs moet draai en dan ry jy Pearston toe. 

Ek gaan hom bietjie plot op Basecamp  :thumleft:

Thanks for the RR and the pictures. I am looking forward to the next ride already, Baviaans is on the list of must do again for sure.

Jou gese jy moet ander kinders kry of beter gesinsbeplanning doen  :imaposer:   :ricky:

Moet saamstem ChrisL - elke slag as ek iets beplan, dan moet dit oor Swaershoek wees.
