Do it as soon as possible.  The dirt roads are in many places better and safer than any of the city roads I commute every day.  And Namibia is extra beautiful at the moment.

Pleasure!

Sy pa was seker oom Boet Knouwds.  My Pa hulle sou hom geken het.  Stampriet was ons kerk, kerk basaar en Dingaans Fees geleenthede wat ek onthou.

My pa was boer op Victory, 100km uit die dorp. Sal vanaand paar fotos laai van wat oor is van ons plaas huise.

100 km watter kant toe Rex?

Chris - noordoostelike rigting.  Pad tussen Mareintal en Stampriet wat loop oor Lidfontein na Derm.

tot mens nie meer deur jou helmet kan sien of al daai wit soppe uit jou klere uit moet was.
Hulle vlieg altyd net mooi op net voor mens deur hulle ry.

Day 4 - Part 1: Mariental to farm Victory.

After the 'kuier' with the locals the previous night, the morning started a little slower than expected. I left Mariental in direction of Stampriet, Then I turned north on the M41.
Fist stop for the morning was op my Ouma se Plaas Auros. I spent a large part of my childhood on this farm. Later years when we lived in Walvisbaai, I spent most of my June/July and December holidays here. There I enjoyed good coffee and conversation with the new owner Rey Nel whom I met 10 years ago. Rey is an amazing versatile man. He is an accountant, a sheep farmer, he runs a butchery from the farm, he produces charcoal from indringer Prosopis trees and has recently started farming with quail (kwartels). A huge demand from upper class lodges in Namib for foreign customers.
From there I visited oom Piet and tannie Gerda Smit on their farm Soverby. Oom Piet still has the same good sense of humor that I remember of him. He advised me not to try and visit our old farm as he expected lots of water on the road and in the low lying pans on the way.
The road had some wet areas but nothing intimidating and I stopped to look at our old Plaas Opstal on farm Victory. (I was their in 2010 and knew what the state was. Below some pictures of where I grew up until the age of 10. (1977)

Day 4 - Part 2: Farm Victory to Windhoek.
I rode back from Victory to take the C15 direction Hoachanas. From there to Uhlenhorst and refueled at Dordabis. Here I enjoyed my first double Tafel Radler for the trip.
Hoe verder noord ek gegaan het, hoe groener het die landskap geword.  Windhoek en Dordabis omgewing he al lekker reen gehad.
Van Dordabis af het ek die C23 geneem en weer afgedraai op grondpad by D1463 verby Gocheganas Nature Reserve.  It was so with taking this scenic road. Daar was baie rivier driffies wat my soms effens moes laat konsentreer.
This road ends on main road B1 to Windhoek. This road was very busy after seeing almost no traffic for a few days.
I got into Windhoek at about peak traffic. It is much better than Pretoria. I stayed over at my cousin and her husband at the beautiful Finkenstein Estate on the way to the airport.

Some pictures below:
