At the turnoff to Ouberg we said our goodbyes to Amsterdam and Marc. They were heading back to Cederberg Oasis where they would load their bikes and head home.

It was 4 degrees celsius at midday and I was freezing. I put on every piece of clothing I had that morning, but still my teeth were clattering.

We had a small lunch at the hotel in Sutherland - a very sketchy place….

While fuelling the bikes, it started to snow. When we got going again, temperature had dropped to 2 degrees

We’re desperate to find coffee in Merweville but we’re not successful. We end up stopping in front of the church so that BuRP can have a smoke.


Riding towards Prince Albert and there is snow on the peaks

We arrive at the quest house and load our bikes on the bakkie. After a shower, we head to Lah-Di-Dah for dinner and we meet up with @Heimer for a chat and some drinks.

Namakwaland and Richtersveld Wildride
« Reply #436 on: August 20, 2021, 05:05:32 pm »
That night I start feeling very ill and spent a large portion of the night on the floor next to the toilet. I vomited more than I thought humanly possible. When I do get to bed I'm shaking and shivering with fever gripping my body. By the time we have to get up to start the drive back home I am weak and don't have the strength to carry my luggage to the car.

I'm awake to see lots of snow in the Karoo, but for most of the trip I am sleeping and @Muffin Man has a lonely drive back .....

Huge thank you to @Amsterdam for arranging an epic trip!

Thank you to @Muffin Man for the drive down and back and @2StrokeDan , @BuRP , Marc and Wayne for being part of such a special trip. It was thoroughly enjoyable to ride with you guys again and I look forward to the next one!
