Promised to post some nice and special photo's.
But first......our "ride report"?! ???
We left Hoopstad just after 11hoo Friday morning and headed to Groot Marico via Bloemhof, Wolmaranstad, Ottosdal, Lichtenburg, Zeerust and Groot Marico. We arrived at Groot Marico just after 2h30 and decided we are hungry so we'll first stop at Marico memoirs where we had a late lunch.
When we got to the site there were some tents already up and guys kuiering heavy. We got to meet Tiger and friends.
Some interesting events followed.......
I think the pics will be selfexplanatory.....or what?
We left you dogs on Sunday at the crocfarm to head to Rustenburg where we had lunch. Left our long lost friends at 15h30 to head home via Ventersdorp, Potch, Klerksdorp, Wolmaranstad and Makwassie. Arrived home just after 19h00. Tired but happy with kiddies longing for mom and dad. A chocolate cake was baked and waiting for us. Special hey?
Enjoy the pics and we're waiting for the next bash. Ride safe and enjoy every moment!
Trials are survivable. We must keep our eternal perspective through the tough times.

We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed and broken. We are perplexed, but we don’t give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going.” (2 Cor. 4:8-9 NLT)

Sherbet.  Maar julle ouens  laat my drool vir die ryery. Kon nog nie al die bladsye oop maak nie - konneksie bietjie stadig.
Milkybar en Hubby, like julle! Hoop om op 'n slag saam te bash!
Let us love people and use things, and not love things and use people.
