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.

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 gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)
