For What its worth I tried my hand at doing a video with what footage i had taken on my trip.......all part of learning experience to do more digital Ride Reports possibly in the future

Here is 10 minutes of your life you will never get back ........but you may get off your butt and go riding

Thanks Chris

We haven't been riding much the last two years due to some "personal issues" and this year covid put a spanner in the works for us. Hopefully 2021 will be a better year.

"....we we seem to go to the same places ....", Great minds think alike, or is it that on the other hand fools never differ  :patch: :pot:

We have met a couple of years ago if I recall correctly.

You had a "clearance sale" and I came to look at a bike jacket if I'm not mistaken. I was actually more interested in the toys in your garage, especially your dad's trike.

Last month we stayed at Kareekloof in the Shepherds cottage, it is really nice if you like "rustic and peaceful". I'm alway on the lookout for roads that I haven't driven/rode yet and we took the Craig Marshall's pass on our way back. Unfortunately we were in the bakkie that weekend, but it is definitely added to my "bike-it-list" in the near future.
