Slaap laat of kom in die donker terug!?!   :pot:    >:D

Nee, ek probeer nie snaaks wees nie. Dis tog nie 'n mass start nie, en ek gaan def nie in die eerste 60 wees nie. Wat is die wegspring intervalle in die oggend?


Eerste 10 is gewoonlik 2 minute apart, daarna 1 minuut apart.
Ek kan verkeerd wees.

Jy kry jou tyd die vorige aand.

Kevin, Peter and I are going to do the roadbook from Mark on the 27th.
It is next Saturday.

Let me know who is joining us!?!

Enjoy you lucky buggers, and please give us some feedback.   :thumleft:  Remember to start early.  Take it easy and keep it safe, Amageza not far away now!!  No time to heal wounds!!  :thumleft:

Mark, will do!!!

Nobody else coming with?   :(

Not me - I've got a GOC this Saturday - but I'll be doing the roadbook next Sunday, the 5th, with AKAGoliath, assuming I've got the bike back from the sticker man.

Thanks Mark for setting up the road book.
Had a very good ride yesterday with Koos. Thanks Koos for your patience helping me with the road book etc.
Long day with some awesome Special Stages.
For those who are still going to do the route...leave early and don't be tempted to cut & run the last section. That bit makes up for the long tar section on the way back.
Everyone knows the saying " a day without wine is like a day without sunshine"  Truely applicable but as important - a day without my bike is like a day without sunshine !!!

As Kevin said, we went out to finish Mark's roadbook.
I enjoy the riverbed special and the last bit. 

Mark, the last bit, you almost got me lost there because everything changed.   :deal:      :thumleft:

Oh and I loved the place so MUCH, I bought a big piece of property (See last photo)   :-\

Did your route today, Mark, thanks a stack - much appreciated.  :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

We managed to recover from the few mistakes we made, which is good.

That little bit at the end next to the river and the stream woke me up - just as I was starting to dream of a finish.

5 days of that riding is gonna be tough ..........................  :peepwall:

 :imaposer: ;D :thumleft:  Well you get to take over first prize then from Washer6.  He missed the second turn, and I had to wait 5 minutes for him, as I could not chase him down.  Finally he came back, all sheepish and carried on like nothing was wrong hahahaha, good fun for sure.  Keep in mind that the Amageza RB most probably is not going to as detailed as mine, so you will need to make sure you use your compass & Waypoints.  My RB was intentionally busy, so that it would force you to look down regularly and learn quickly how to do that without wiping out.  Good luck to all of you at the Amageza, it's gonna be EPIC!.  :thumleft:
