Well, seeing as you make it so easy...!

Yup, that are looking towards the Baviaans Mountains, from a farm road near the coccpan padstal. I have ridden down the track just to the east of the one you are on.

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.

Sorry for taking so long.. it's a bit tedious doing the bucket thing just for one pic...

OK, this is a relatively famous route home... depending on where home is!  :mwink:

umm... lets say, er... OK how far to go to... where?



(... and I'm sorry - it will not help you one little bit to try and analyse the filename...  :laughing4: ... but I guess you could work it out...  ::) )
