I know that piece of road near Danielskuil. 60km straight as an arrow. I grew-up on mining towns around there.

Looks like brilliant trip.  :drif:

Nice-looking road up that mountain!

Thank you for sharing.  Somehow these solo trips to the middle of nowhere and back is magical

Thank you all for the nice comments. :thumleft:

I do not have a GPS. I use maps and google earth. Normally when I go on trips like this I give myself waypoints in my head. These are usually the bigger towns or a landmark like a mountain. From Warrenton my next waypoint was Postmasburg. I had 3 hours to get there. I know for a fact that there are a lot of gravel roads (to the farms) other than the normal tar routes in the Northern Cape. I just ask a local in the small towns between my waypoints for a gravel road to the next town.  The northern Cape people are extremely friendly and helpfull.

I love it but I know in terms of accidents etc its a hell of a risk. Should something happens I will probably be a piece of biltong by the time they find me. But they will find me with a smile on my face. :biggrin:

I do not want to spoil your Boegoe 2009 trips so I will not give out tips ets for your Bash planning.  :deal: Go and explore.
Gewoontlik n@@i ek reguit aan op fyndraai.

Hallo Ama

Baie nice RR. Ek het jou nog nie ontmoet nie  8), maar jy het dit opgefork deurdat jy wragtag nie vir die honne in Kathu kom hallo sê het nie  >:(  ???. Ons kon self 'n ent saam gery het. Is diep diep teleurgesteld. Sal jou volgende keer voorlê.  :patch:

Ons gaan die naweek die Great Kalahari Challeng doen in Upington. Kom maak 'n draai  :biggrin:

There is a lot to be said for travelling on your own and taking the roads less travelled. Poetic too!

Nice!

I wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost
