Seker al die mooi nuwe pale in sy pole yard?

Until the sun set and we came together around the camp fire ......

This was a great day with unforgettable experiences.

I hope Arch can put up his drone video of "riders into the sunset"

Not the best quality video, as it was very quickly stitched together with some low res vids, but will do a better one when I have some more time.

It was flippen cold, I had the champion snorer in my caravan and something from the menu did not agree with my stomach ......
 ..........  so I did not sleep at all that night ..........

But the next morning was the most beautiful sunrise ....... and we had the prospect of an easy ride to Klein Pella on the Namibian border

Are we ready to start the next day's report ????   :spitcoffee:

Jip, next day here we go! 17 June / Day 3   :thumleft:

This day was Verneukpan -> Kenhardt -> Pofadder -> Klein Pella





In Kenhardt, we stopped for fuel and quick breakfast. It was also the firs time we had signal. Jo wasn't doing great and opted for a simple piece of toast.  :snorting:

By this point, I've become quite accustomed to this new slick tire of mine and was happy that I've had a day and a half without any punctures.   :ricky:

After our Kenhardt brekkie and getting rid of the excess clothing, we hit the road towards Pofadder.

Something else to mention: We were all expecting severe cold and kitted for the Artic every morning and every morning (except for the fist and last mornings) it wasn't as cold as we expected it to be.

When we got to Pofadder, Jo gave these instructions: "Koop 'n bruinbrood, botter en 4 Powerades... Naartjie flavoured."

By the look on his face, I wasn't sure if he's going to make it to Klein Pella, as he might be giving birth to another Klein Pella on his way there.  :-[

The remainder of the crew stopped at each and every store we could find open on a public holiday to buy some meat and beers. And ofcourse the bread and naartjie Powerades.  ;D

The road from Pofadder was a stretch of tar before we turned right towards the mountains and Namibian border. This last stretch is an absolute pleasure to ride, with twisty bends, rises and dips etc.

We got to Klein Pella and found Jo in his undies with a relieved look on his face. It was evident that he'd just made it and was doing much better.  :imaposer:

This was initially one of the places we'd camp, but a late change to the guesthouse meant that we slept in luxury!  :3some:







Room with a view of the mountains and the pool. More on the pool in the next few posts...  :eek7:
