3 guys have expressed interest and are “in line” but I’ll list it accordingly once we have to sell - R189 000 not neg. Willing to do a 10% discount for someone who pays for it in Crypto.

Day loop through the cederberg, not often you get to come through here with no luggage, roads are knackered though if it’s this corrugated on a bike it would be hell by car.

West Coast for a few days, thanks to the forum for recommending a spot to camp.

Wife got to go in the waves, I got to go in the sand - I guess that’s what’s referred to in the marriage industry as a “fair” compromise.

Bit of admin and crayfish & beer sampling before we head to the next destination.

Back into the mountains from the coast, first time taking betsie on gravel, all went surprisingly well albeit slow going, but we were able to nestle in nicely next to the river for a good few days. Sneaky oil heater hidden in the cupboard helped the 2-3c nights, fair bit of rain was compensated for with red wine and chess inside.

Likely won’t take the 990 with again on the back, in theory it sounds great but it’s more of a hassle than the experience is worth when you’re trying to have a “camping” experience. Let 990 trips be 990 trips on their own.

We want to return to some national parks next so trying to come up with a route the long way around to Addo for now.

Still on the road, we had to do a suspension replacement as the rear leaf springs sagged, all good and ready we hit the road ago slowly making our way to Addo via the southern coast. Quite a few weather days means more time inside, really is nice arriving and all you have to do is plug in the 220v plug 😅

I moved the thread here as Ettiene is done with it. Its also a nice read.

Also a good indicator at what you looking at for a top end L300, as opposed to mine which was a tight budget buy. In the end you get what you pay for.

Build a sidecar they said. It will be fun they said. Ja-nee !
