1) Seems everyone does Smitskraal, Baviaans.
2) Still going
3) And a mate's yellow Geen Sand stuck in the Doringriver sand... Cold feet or just wet ones? (apologies to Louis - cos he can ride that big duck anywhere)
(now, when this @#$%^**  busted collarbone gets fixed i'm needing some more of that)
