All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible. T. E. Lawrence

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.

Correctum.
I had a venison pie and coke at the Koekoepan Padstal.  Helgaard told me of a dirt track leading gown to the Loerie road. You then turn off this road to go along the Gamtoos. Ja, that's the pipeline bridge to PE in the distance.

Picture taken from  33°52'36.59"S  24°57'43.66"E  - very lekker little detour.

Don't quite understand your reference to going to Hankey...
This is 2km past the Koekoepan. Select, then Right click on the cords and  select Search Google. It will show you prezactly where the road is.

Yes, had a look on Google maps. 300m from koekepan (direction Hankey) I see the turnoff, then another 300m and the tower is on the left and all the way down to the Gamtoos river.
