4 Corners solo trip op trusty DR
« on: December 05, 2015, 11:18:55 am »
So hier is dit nou uiteindelik. Ek spring weg in die volgende paar uur. Bike gepak en geprep. Roetes min of meer uitgewerk. Ready soos n coiled spring!!

Hierdie gedagte om die 4 corners te doen dink ek al n hele ruk aan en baie nagte se brein sinapse wat nie tot ruste kom nie, maar hier is dit nou.

My plan is om ooskus op te ry deur Swaziland en noord na Louis Trichardt, sal daar wees vir kersfees en bietjie weer my geboortedorp explore op die DR. Sal daar goed na my steed kyk en lekker service waar ek haar vir 7 weke aan die slaap moet sit om te gaan werk. Sal dan nog 7 weke van slaaploose nagte moet oorleef terwyl ek die tweede helfte van my trip beplan. Natuurlik grens langs tot Alexanderbaai, weskus af en terug na Aapstad toe!

Ek gaan my hele roete wat ek ry op SPOT track en my progress kan gesien word op die volgende link :

As ek in jou area is en wil graag saam ry, laat weet dan maak ons plan!

Looks like it's going to be a fantastic trip Morokai. I am flippen jealous

Just a question ... which 4 towns constitute the 4 corners? Obviously Alexander Bay and Slaapstad , but what about the other 2? East London and Kosi Bay? Musina?

McSack, This is what the BMW club I was part of many moons ago considered the 4 corners.

North - Pontdrift Border Post
South - Cape Agulhas Lighthouse
East - Kosi Bay Border Post
West - Alexander Bay Border Post
