Excellent !

Do you choose the kakest paths on purpose, or is your route planning decidedly up to shite  ;D :biggrin:
Nice going  :thumleft:

Lekker, Meneer... baie lekker.  :thumleft:

Daai lake is darem groter as die Blue Lagoon se dammetjie, of hoe?
Old, grey, crafty...

You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait, the grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas. Enthusiasts are fighters. They have fortitude. They have staying qualities. Enthusiasm is at the bottom of all progress. With it, there is accomplishment. Without it, there are only alibis.

What a ride , it brings on evil thoughts like tipping this bloddy desk over and going home to pack the scoot and start heading for Malawi . To hell with the consequences .

Great report keep it coming.

Ok, I'm back in town, sorry for the delay. I've been trying to do this report offline so that I can post an installment a day, but I get impatient and start posting before I have enough of a head start.

I'll try and speed it up.
