Diep Spoor revisited - Camphers poort
« on: October 19, 2009, 09:18:43 am »
What a pleasure to be back at Diepspoor - the 2009 EC Wilddog bash site.
This time to a DRY campsite....   ;D

Lots of work today, so my apologies this is not really I ride report,
but just a post of a couple of pics I have of the Campherspoort ride on Saturday.

Hope the rest will add some story line and more pics... !  :biggrin:

Thanks again Watty & PIE for organising the get together!   :thumleft:
It was also good to meet up with the Grahamstown dogz!
They have a detailed ride report here:  http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=39525.0

1) Herms at Vaalpadkloof
2) Wilddog setting up camp.
3) Quick repairs before setting out on the Campherspoort ride

1.  Sakkie Leapard crawling for the perfect shot
