I can shave my legs, (try) grow my hair and buy a CRF300?

But ja, judging by all the lovesick slobbering go on here, I don't think I'm what the Dawgs are looking for in a YT blogger (fortunately).  :patch: :lol8:

You read my thoughts :imaposer:

But the editing of videos... I think you need to have a passion for that. There's sooooo many boring bits to skip through to get to the more exciting bits.

And a very open mind: expecting everyone to be friendly and helpful.

And the moment a hobby/passion becomes a job.......it is just a job.

Considering her fairly high production values, and her setup, she seems to still enjoy it. She probably has it down to an art by now, with markers and whatnot.

And it allows her to do what she wants, i.e. settle in SA for a period of time, buy a new bike, kit it out and ride around for as long as she pleases. It probably makes the "just a job" thing much more bearable.

Sure we could all do it if we wanted to. Strange, then, that we aren't ;-)

Latest video..

Great when the visitors enjoy our beautiful country! :thumleft:


I am sure there are nicer routes to Loskop from Joburg. No need to ride around a squatter Camp with all its filth.
Where are my shorts??

That's what happens when you don't talk to the local biking community and follow the GPS - you miss out

Ek gee haar 10/10 dat sy die ware Suid-Afrika vir die wêreld wys.  Niks van hierdie soetsappige Tafelberg/Kruger Wildtuin/Kaappunt/Wynplaas/Augrabies nonsies nie.  Wys hulle die gemors, plakkers, riool, slaggate en beurtkrag.  :peepwall: :biggrin:

Yeah, and she looked at the entrance of 22 Rivers (that left paadjie).... but did not know it I presume.
Mind, 1 or 2 tricky crossings there, don't blame her for taking the long way!

Who doesn't go ride and see why the road is closed?

I am kind of glad Orrie was closed for her, I am certain she would hurt that 250 going up there, does she have a bash plate yet?

For sure, Orrie was roughest I’ve seen it when we went up in Januarie before the heavy rains. Looking at what she sees as “rough” on this trip so far, it would’ve been a real challenge.....

She is heading Noneking’s way
At the end of her last video she stays over at @malmensgerrit’s Oppie Oewer which was 18 or 19th of February, so her videos are currently about 2-3 weeks behind her actual route

I love reading the comments on her YouTube videos about South Africa. People are so naive about our country !

I hope for her that will be the case, hope not her uneducated gullibleness wrt SA will lead to dangerous situations for her....

She is an experienced traveller and have been to many rough places in Eastern Europe and South America. SA/Africa is not such a badass place! ;)

You guys should get out more..
