Dag 28 - 23/2/2016

Lekker buite onder die sterre geslaap by Oewerbos. Voor sonop wakker en gepak, reg om te ry! Moerse opgewonde om die westelike punt vandag te maak  :laughing4:

Ry deur Kotzehoop en al langs die grens af. Weereens n pragtige 4x4 roete gery deur kloofies en koppies. Hierdie een was baie makliker as gister se 4x4 roete  :thumleft:

Deur Eksteenfontein en langs die buite ruike van die Richtersveld nationale park. Hierdie landskap hier is ook vreeslik dramaties en vreeslik mooi!

Nader aan Alexander baai begin dit baie koud raak, koudste wat ek op die hele trip al ervaar het. Welkom by die weskus! Maak Alexander baai border post met groot exitement binne myself. 4 uit die 4 punte gemaak!!! Nou net in een stuk by die huis aankom!

Ry al langs die kus af in n sterk koue wind wat dit nogals onaangenaam maak. Deur Port Nolloth, Kleinsee en Koingnaas. Skiet van hier af binneland toe ( Is nou nie juis lus om dik sand te gaan ry nie  ;) ) en kom tot by stilstand in Garies. Wat n kak plek. Kan nie eens in die hotel se bar rook nie! Maar ja, wil net die aand hier spandeer, more slaap ek in my eie bed!

Dag 29 - 24/2/2016

Hier is dit nou. Die laaste dag van n epic trip. Weereens vroeg wakker en nou wil ek by die huis kom. Gelukkig het ek al baie die weskus gery, so sight seeing was nie n groot prioriteit gewees nie. Baie min gestop en elke keer as ek my bike afskakel, dan start sy weer op. Weet die huis is naby.

Grondpaaie tot by Vredendal en gou by die Koffie grot n ontbyt geeet. Grondpad tot by Piketberg en van daar ruik-die-huis tot in Lakeside!

Dadelik by die Toad gaan stop en celebratory drinks te drink saam n paar buddies  :thumleft:

Hierdie trip was life changing!! Die tyd om so iets te doen is NOU!!!

8996km in 29 dae
1 puncture
1 suspensie seal
1 carb clean
countless joy en mindblowing experience  :thumleft:

Fantasties! Iets waarvan die meeste van ons maar net kan droom.
Bly dit was ’n sukses en ’n ervaring wat jy vir altyd met jou kan saam dra.

Hoe goed het jou spot device gewerk? Ek het probeer kyk na jou spot trace maar dit wys net 'n error?
Is spot die moeite werd en koste effektief vir 'n trip soos die die?
Tx vir jou posts en deel van jou trip - awesome !!

Loved this report!

I suspect it is underrated, actually. I love your unpretentiously fluent style. You probably ride your DR in similar style. And your camping rig is appropriately minimalist.

I look forward to another epic RR. What have you got planned, Morakai?
