Namibia, hier kom ons. 

Ons beplan vir 'n kuier by familie en vriende in Namibia.  Die covid ding het ons uit Namibia gehou en ons verlang.  Die LT was spesifiek gekoop vir die tipe van vinnige kuiertjies teen 'n prys wat die sak pas.  Ons 1ste stop in Namibia sal by ons vriendin wees.  Sy bly op 'n plaas doer in die Kalahari net so suidoos van Koes se kant, op die D503.  Ons moet die Saterdag, 17 April in Keetmanshoop wees waar sy ons sal optel.  Dis grondpad terug na haar plaas, so die LT sal in Keetmans agterbly. 

Ons beplan egter om al die Donderdag, die 15de te ry, so lekker ompad Noorkaap se rigting, ons sal ons tyd vat tot daar en bietjie ander paaie verken as die gewone pad deur Upington. 

Die Donderdag is ons gepak en vertrek, rigting Somerset-Oos, Graaff Reinett, Victoria Wes tot by ons bestemming Carnavon.

Ons het so bietjie padwerke hier in die begin maar anderkant Fort Baufort maak die pad oop, nou is die LT in sy element, hy is gemaak vir die langpad.

Ons vat dit rustig verder, dis 'n heerlike dag en ons geniet die rit in die Karoo.

1ste Foto die kerkie in Victoria Wes.
Die foto's daarna is ons in Carnavon. 

Ons was vroeer daar as wat ons beplan het, maar dis goed, ons het nie haas nie.

Die Vrydag oggend is ons vroeg wakker, ons pak rustug en besluit om maar te ry.  Ons het nie ver om te ry nie, Springbok is ons bestemming en ons sal iewers daar slaapplek soek. 

Ons ry rigting Williston, Calvinia, Vanrhynsdorp, sluit aan op die N7 na Garies, Kammieskroon en dan Springbok. 

Daar is so effe van 'n koue in die lig vanoggend, maar dis verfrissend.  Dis lang reguit paaie hier, en jy sien die droogte wat die stuk aarde geslaan het.

Ons is Vanrhynspas af en die wind kom stel hom voor.  Gelukkig is die LT 'n groot meneer en het gewig aan sy kant.  Ons beur voort tot in Vanrhynsdorp en maak weer vol.  Ons eet ookm sommer iets daar. 

Kyk daai laaste foto hoe waai die wind daai palmbome.  Maar gelukkig draai on netnou op die N7 met die wind op ons gat.   :biggrin:

Ons is nou op die N7 oppad Springbok toe.  Die 1ste stuk is die wind op ons gat, maar nie vir lank nie.  Hy draai en ons kry hom skuins van voor, so Noorooste wind.  Dis nie 'n konstante waai nie, die ou is kwaad en ruk en pluk soos hy waai, en die groot trokke van voor help ook nie.   :eek7: 

Dit was 'n gestoei, maar ons arriveer veilig in Springbok.  Ons besluit om op Jakkelswater, so entjie buite Springbok te oornag.

Ons is redelik pynloos deur die RSA grens, nou oppad na die Nam grens, hier sal dit seker langer vat weens die covid vorms ens. 

Oor die Oranjerivier, Nam grens hier voor ons.  Dis bly altyd vir my die lekkerste gevoel.

Ons covid papiere is reg, ons boek deur die grens, kry ons padpermit, word deursoek deur doane en ons is deur.  Dit het effe langer geneem maar dit was nog steeds pynloos.  Ons stop aan die anderkant by die vulstasie en maak vol.  Ons kry ook sommer 'n Nam sim kaart.  Ons is so bietjie agter met tyd, maar daai sal ek opmaak op die pad. 

Ons is oppad Keetmanshoop toe, ek gee gas en raai wie kom kuier weer?  Die flippen WIND, reg van voor.  Hy pla effe, maar hy werk my brandstof sake.   Ek sou Keetman haal op 'n tenk met baie om te spaar, maar nou hoop ek om Grunau te haal.   :eek7:    My 180/170km/h raak nou 140km/h en ons gooi vol op Grunau.  Nou kan ek die laaste 160km weer stoot. 

Een minuut oor 12 stop ons by ons vrindien in Keetmanshoop.   :biggrin:

Chris, ek probeer hou by so 140km/h, dan raak hy nie swaar op die sak nie.  Natuurlik daar by die tuinroete waar jy maar 100 of 120 kan ry smile ek alpad, maar dis te eentonig op die Nam lang paaie.
