ABF ride 2020 - die tweespoor na Dealesville
« on: December 31, 2020, 02:46:07 pm »
So after recovering from my bout of food poisoning I had to get some fresh air...
I slabbed the R64 to Krugersdrift dam in the hope of seeing it overflowing, alas it still needs a tad more before it goes over the spillway.
Then I decided to find some dirt...the first left hand turnoff at S744 beckoned.
Rode a while then took the first set of pics at what I called Mieliepan and saw a magnificent Waterbuck bull. (Pics do not do the buck justice unfortunately)

Then at the next Y I took the right hand as I wanted to get back to the R64 at some stage. This eventually became a bit of twee spoor but forging ahead I stopped to watch some ploughing action. Followed the road till I eventually arrived at Dealsville, filled up and slabbed it back home. A nice way to end the year and to see how good the veld looks after recent rain.

Die grondpad is besonder mooi, tot die tweespoor het min issues. Ek het ook al die pad al langs die Modder gery tot by Perdeberg en dan geslab na Kimberley.

In cases like that it is best to leave the bathroom door and windows open...

Lovely little mind-cleaner you had, looks quite scenic, Rob.

Darem jammer hulle vervaardig nie meer. :(
