Grondpad Karoo se kant toe
« on: December 31, 2014, 12:50:34 pm »
Ek en my Huisdier het besluit ons moet 'n bietjie wegkom en nooi Skaapkop om saam te ry. Hy het altyd 'n rubber arm en het onmiddelik laat weet hy ry saam  :thumleft:  Skaapkop maak altyd 'n trip interessant en daar word altyd baie gelag - dankie Bennie ons ry altyd lekker saam my vriend  :peepwall:

Ons het vooruit slaapplek op Cradock en buite op 'n plaas op Murraysburg bespreek.

Die plan was om soveel grondpad as moontlik te ry en ons het dit reggekry. 'n Totaal van 1070 kilometers gery waarvan net 185 teerpad was. Nie omdat ons wou, maar omdat ons moes.

We left Kirkwood at 06H00 on Sunday 27 December and returned Tuesday 29th.

Altyd lekker om op die brug onderkant die Darlington Dam se wal te stop.

Soos wat ek voorheen genoem het, was daar geen roete beplanning nie, net 'n eind bestemming om oor te bly.

Ons kom toe op die Crown Hill pad en besluit dis hy wat ons vat

Somerset Oos in die verte. Ons wou daar ietsie eet maar mens kan dit nie glo nie, GEEN eetplek oop op 'n Sondag nie. Ons koop toe pasteie by die plaaslike SPAR wat gesorg het dat ek en Skaapkop sooibrand moes saamsleep Cradock toe  :snorting:

Klaar sooibrand op sleeptou vat ons die pad Swaers Hoek Pas se kant toe.

Die Karoo lyk pragtig na onlangse goeie reen.

Evidence of the recent rains in the area. Roads were however well maintained and a pleasure to ride on

Six German bikers arrived where we were overnighting. They were spending 3 days in RSA on route to Cairo.

Another one of their bikes. They had started getting their bikes to RSA by ship which was evidently taking too long so they had them flown to Cape Town.
