Dankie vir weer 'n baie lekker lees RR :thumleft:
Dit lyk my die karretjie is die oplossing vir die nare sandmonster, lyk so gemaklik en dan nog lekker baie pakplek ook. Die 3x4 van adventure bikes.
Kan nie wag vir die res :sip:
Life is great LIVE IT!!

DAY 6 – RIEMVASMAAK TO RICHMOND

With no plan on a route back we decided to see how far we would get today, trying to travel on as many gravel as possible.  We managed to reach Richmond, 90% gravel and some 700km’s down South.  Our route for the day was from Riemvasmaak to Kakamas, Kenhardt, Van Wyksvlei, Vosburg, Victoria West and eventually Richmond.

Leaving Riemvasmaak early morning.
Once again I will let the pictures tell the story.
 









































This is what happens if you are admiring the scenery instead of concentrating on the road.


No problem though, clear the sand in front of the wheels and bobs your uncle.

Leaving Riemvasmaak behind us and crossing the Orange River towards Kakamas.






Between Kakamas and Kenhardt


This is a huge head on this “windpomp”.  JMOL, just for you.




Nannie in charge again.




In Kenhardt we grabbed something to eat and were on the road again to Van Wyksvlei.
These roads are long and boring, hardly anything to see.  Mountains are also far and few in between.














We briefly stopped in Van Wyksvlei to stock up on water and left as quickly as possible.  This little town with all the dronkies and beggars just don’t do it for me.  I hate travelling through this town.
On route to Vosburg.


We reached Vosburg between 1 and 2 and entered a ghost town, no one in sight. 



On our way to Victoria West


And then towards Richmond


And then we felt like a bit of adventure and climbed onto the N1 towards Richmond.
On this short little piece to Richmond we encountered 2 stop and goes.


We ended the day staying in another self catering apartment.  A lekka potjie and some cold ones rounded the day’s events up.

'n "Adaptor" opgesit wat die kar wiel kan vat vir beter vastrap.  Dan sit ek die fiets se wiel op die karretjie.  So kan jy omruil soos jy lus het.  Die kar wiel kos so 700 ZAR en ek kan seker so 30 000km op hom kry.  Jy weet wat die bike wiel kos en ek kry net so oor die 7 000km op die fiets wiel as hy op die bike is.  Die keuse is nie te moeilik gewees nie.   :biggrin: 

Daai modderskerm is 'n moerse probleem, maar boer maak 'n plan.   :lol8:  Hou die spasie dop, hy sal my nie onder kry nie.  Hy sal uiteindelik saamwerk, glo my.  Hy het mos nie 'n ma of 'n pa nie     :eek7:   :patch:
