Hey Thump.... no PE dawg is allowed to answer this one!! We shall see if any "visiting' dawg can remember this awesome little road...!

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.

Gotta go to the cold and drafty workshop... so here is the answer...

S33 34 29.8 E24 39 34.5

leaving grootrevierpoort on the way to Steytlerville.
Just before the bend where you turn away from the river.

This Antoniesberg Pass... most PE dawgs have done it, and I think a lot of passers-thru have too.. it certainly is a fantastic little road, perfect passage for the PE - Karroo transition.

Suggest you bookmark this for a future ride..  :thumleft:
