19 May 2016

Woke up to a bitterly cold freestate morning. Colder than a witches tit it was.
had a very lekker day planned ahead though.
kestell to Underberg, Khotso backpackers.

After trying to get petrol in kestell and failing, even though there are two petrol stations there I hit the road aver Olivershoek Passs to Bergville. Even though it was tar it was still an amazing ride through some of the most beautiful mountains in the country.

Sterkfontein dam lived up to its reputationn of being really windy and the wind coming off the water almost felt wet..

Stopped at the same picnic site Cheryl and I stopped to have lunch at many years ago while on a marketing trip. Shed a tear there at the wonderful memories that came with the place.

They are working on the Bergville side of the pass. First stop go was right at the Natal border but it gave me chance to take some lekker pics of the mountains.

Hightailed it for bergville as I could feel it was fast becoming breakfast time.  Found a petrol station and a Maxi's.... Even got a cup of coffee from 2 local trafic cops.... as they just wanted to now where and when and what and everything an all aboout my trip. He even wanted to check my GPS an all for my ave speed.....

When I left Bergville they wanted to escort me out of town..I am not sure if it was to make sure I leave or they were just being friendly...  You lot decide..
I took the old road through Winterton and on to Escort. Pretty uneventful though.
then from Escort to Mooiriver ws the R103. A very lekker ride all the way through to Notties. At Notties the Maxi's burger came back to haunt me....  and did it haunt me   ouch..  Ater findin the shithouse I was informed by the madam behind the till I needed R1 to get in. Needless to say the last few steps was the "shithouse shuffle"

Thats where the fun and real beauty started.Turned onto the Loteni road. First couple of kilos are tar but then it turn to gravel and what amazing gravel it is. Mountain pass after mountain pass. twist and turns and for the most part in pretty good condition.

Rivers were flowin and water was giin clear like they should be here in the berg.

Pulle into himeville and onto Underberg around lunch time.

onto Khotso backpackers.
Very lekker place with some very very tasty volunteers helping out..
 Floot floot my story is out for tonight,
Tomorrow.....  flyfishing gin clear streams all day..

Ek ry lekker saam.

Stayed at the bottom of Oliviershoek pass for a couple of years and agree - it's beautiful country.  Some nice bass dams there on the Eskom grounds.

Looks like you're having fun!
