We travelled light - just a "one nighter" to the Hell - been more that 2yrs since we where together there last ...  :(
Route: George - Montagu Pass - Paardebont - Dysselsdorp .....
First time our "new" bikes go together on a "decent" ride!!

After Dysselsdorp we went right towards De Rust for a short tar stretch, before turning left on the interesting Oude Muragie gravel towards Wilgewandel/Cango Caves ... Shyte - the area is dry and burnt!!!  :(

The road to The Hell - as per usual - has its bad patches, leaving some "battle scars"  :patch: on a heavy bike, especially if you ride it like you are used to after almost a decade on thumpers - but more on that later ...

Finding a shady spot can be a challenge - and when you do, you do appreciate it!!
The "view" over the valley of Hell - is always a sight to appreciate and remember ...  ;D

In The Hell we were met by the friendly and spontaneous "Tannie Annetjie", and the coldest beer ever from a fridge!!!  :biggrin:
Everything was set in the "Caravan park" - complete with new bedding and all ... Wood, Ice and "Braai-brood" were delivered to our site!!  :thumleft: :thumleft:

ek like altyd julle reports :thumleft:

Het ook daar in die karavane gaan bly in Oktober laasjaar. Mens moet maar probeer om elke twee/drie jaar of so te gaan. Volgende keer dalk met die mountain bike vir my  :o
