Thank you for the feedback. First the town "died" because of development and then it "came alive" again due to a dog's curiosity!

The "spook dorp" is going to tell a lot of stories soon... Now the RR makes a lot more sense to me  :thumleft:

Nice ride. Great to see you back on a bike Thump. Hopefully I will ride together soon.  :mwink:

Don't let the BMW Dogs give you too much stick. :peepwall:
Getting lost during an adventure is a relative term. It all depends if you're enjoying it.

Ha,a blast from the past.
I remember when my daughter and myself stumbled on this ghost town,we explored for hours finding all manner of things.
A worthy stop and braai spot to chill and wander around the chimney forest.

Oh whoops... het net prentjies gekyk!
Drazil "Discovered" this quaint  place on one of his adventure out rides.
He then put together a Geo braai which we attended. In the process we "annexed" the place & called it Draziville.
And so it is known till this day by the dogs that attended.
I have been pass there again a month ago and it is still a muchness of the same as it has been all the years.
We all still remember Drazil's puddle crossing and can really say he has forged ahead to greater & bigger puddles since then.  :)
