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.

Close enough I would say. Never been there. Would love to go and think it is going to be the 1st DP trip I do with the WR450 which I plan to buy. Would love the light bike around there.

Thx. Pic looks awesome

Haven't been there for a long while, but could this maybe be the Nico Malan Pass?

Ja... I think you are right.. the Ecca Pass.

So, RovRat... come, where is it?

PS... I think the pics on this thread should be of more recognisable features.. to make it interesting for all, and not for just some who are lucky enough to recognise their own neck of the woods. Things like the blockhouses, and landmark bridges.. hotels that tell a story, dam walls..

Dit is Operator en Trailrider en hulle staan by die laagwaterbrug tussen Clanwilliam en Citrusdal. As jy links draai soos wat hulle staan gaan jy oor n pas (ek het nou sy naam vergeet) Algerie toe.

Aaaaa.......... dis die Nieuwoudtpas  :thumleft:
