I didn't think the track could get any better but after Shallows Inn, the track got a bit more..uhm let's call it less travelled.
It became a few kilometers of ups and downs and mud dips, ducking and lifting and trying desperately not to grin like an idiot the whole way through.
It was the cherry on an already great trip. I wished I had taken some pics there but to be honest, it was just too much fun to stop.



Afterwards, we had a semi final break before we did the last few miles to Magaliesburg for a very late breakfast.

Kortseun,

I think you’ve got it right. The spirit of adventure riding is to enjoy it and windup with a grin of satisfaction on your face because you’ve done something that was a challenge to you.

Nice report.

Kortseun, thanks for a lovely report, not only lovely pictures, but also, U REMEMBERed names! awesome!! Thanks Robert for the lovely trip, and the gentlemen with the adventurer were Gravelman. It was very comforting to know we traveled with such exellent teachers also, that is what makes the WD so special, the sharing of enthusiasm and knowledge, nowhere else ....

Huggies, I'll be passing by K'dorp on the Sat morning on my way to OFS bash. When were you planning on riding down?

And if Jules isn't planning anything this coming weekend, we can sommer just head out on the dirt towards Potch or Ventersdorp.  Wanna?
