Lekker trippie Kobus  :thumleft:    Baviaans is always a great ride no matter how many times one rides it

But I have to ask ...what's with that moerse big gomma-gomma you have strapped to the saddle of the AT? Bit of fragility setting in with old age boet ?  :pot:

 :lol8:  Whilst it is very comfortable, its actually used to raise seat height a bit.  With my long legs the standard high setting is still slightly low for me.  Ill be looking out for the new Adventures seat which is the perfect height.

Sjoe maar Baviaans kan besig raak!

Ek het amper my NC op Kom se pad afgeskryf.
N ou met n Isuzu bakkie stop vir geen rede so paar meter voor my, gooi in reverse en sit voet neer en pyl reg op my af! Ek dink vinnig en jaag in die vlak watersloot links van pad in. Die ou skrik hom dood toe hy my sien, ry vorentoe en stop langs my en se seker 5 x 'jammer. Ek het niks gese, net rustig gly gly uit Sloot terug op die pad en aan.
Dis bitter mooi wereld.

Prins Alfred pas maak my altyd op my senuwees.  Nog elke keer wat ek daar oor is, was daar ten minste een ou wat roekeloos vinnig om blinde draaie kom.  Hierdie keer was geen uitsondering nie.




Yesterday morning it rained in George as predicted.  Much needed rain.  However, with 2 boys, rain days during holiday is usually a nightmare for their mom.

A message to Karoo Rider just before 12h00 confirms that theres no rain at the time in Ladismith.  A couple of quick arrangements and packing the necessary, I relieve my wife of 2 bored boys at around 14h00.

Its still raining as we go over Outeniqua pass, but stops quickly on our way to Oudtshoorn.  Its great to see the mountains recovering after the last fires and this rain will surely help even more. 

As usual, we stop in Ladismith to get some essential supplies for the evening.  Shortly afterwards we stop at our usual spot for the evening and start setting up camp.

Met die kamp klaar opgeslaan, word die seuns gevra om elkeen 3 fotos te neem van dit wat vir hulle mooi is.  Elkeen het 2 minute om terug te kom met sy foto.  Om perspektief te gee, die ouderdomme van die 4 seuns is 7, 8, 10 en 12 jaar.

Daar was natuurlik geen finale wenner nie, slegs 4 ewe goeie fotos (1 van elk):











Sommer n paar fotos van die res van die aand:

Vroeg oggend word ek wakker van die seuns se lag, seker so net na 05h30.

Ek het maar sleg geslaap aangesien die seuns almal in een tent wou slaap en dit los my en neef toe met n tent.

Die man snork soos n fok@%n stoom trein!

In elk geval, ons is op.  Daar word weer vuur gemaak en teiken geskiet.







Ek en my oudste laaitie besluit om die grens draad te gaan bekyk en vat n vroeg oggend stappie.

Ons stap so draai deur die veld waar die ander manne ons ontmoet om na die ander grens draad te gaan kyk. 

Moet nou nie die fout maak om te dink ons doen heining inspeksie nie.  There is nothing on the farm apart from a few roaming buck seldom seen, so this is just a walk more than anything else.  n Man mag mos maar maak asof jy n grootwild boer is.

This time in the morning everything looks prettier.









After a quick breakfast consisting of last nights left over braai, camp is packed up and we hit the road again.

We first stop in Ladismith to talk to a guy we met the previous day.  My cousin is looking for a cheapie 4x4 to explore with us so we stop to look at a potential bargain.





Ive owned two of these XJs in previous years and know how bulletproof they can be, especially in the 4.0 trim.  This one however was neglected too much and we decide to give it a skip after a quick look and exchanging contact details.

Like kids are, its not long before theyre hungry and we stop in Oudtshoorn at this place for the biggest pizza Ive ever seen.





Terwyl ons wag, stap ek om die draai en neem n paar fotos.  n Groot gedeelte van 1993 het ek my tyd hier spandeer en daar kom verskeie emosies by my op.  Dis die eerste keer wat ek terug is en ek onderneem om eendag n draai te kom maak en te kyk of ek nie bietjie binne kan gaan loer nie.





En so, al is dit nou nie n bike RR nie, kom nog n kort verhaal tot n einde.  Ek hoop 2019 is sommer propvol opwindende kort verhale vir almal.

Sommer so lekker om net gou die kinders bietjie kinders te maak!
Mammie het dit seker waardeer en die seuns sal dit altyd onthou.
Gelukkig pla snork my nie, maar my vrou wel? :imaposer: :peepwall:
Dankie vir die saamvat, stap in die veld is altyd lekker want jy sien groot en klein dinge raak asook al die reuke!
