02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

What is the main reason for people falling during a water crossing? Speed, holes, loose rocks, too short legs?

The conundrum that is life...
You have to be absolutely smashed to have the guts to attempt it,
But perfectly sober to achieve any success!

Voorhoede road between Swellendam and Bonnievale, 2006 just after some heavy rains. I think it was my first watercrossing, nothing major really.
