You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Dude - sien jy die weer buite ?

Daardie taaier merke op die droŽ klei op van daardie paaie het gewys ek wil nie regtig daar wees as dit nat is nie...

briljant!!!!!  :thumleft: ek het die RR darem baie geniet.

Eendag is eendag dan  :ricky: ek die roete, my "collar" wil so graag Namibia toe gaan, maar dit sal maar moet wag tot volgende jaar, want ons het nie genoeg gehad van die winter nie, dit was nie koud genoeg nie, so ons gaan kyk hoe koud ons kan kry in Europa oor Desember.  ;)

Manne, julle weet mos - ek was in "spirit" saam julle terwyl ek die vars baba se vuil doeke afgehaal en vir die worshond gevoer het. :patch:

Great guys on a great trip. :thumleft: Mooi manne. Fanks Eisie vir die RR - dit voel asof ek saam was.
