Hy se toe nog dat hy gemaklik 140km/h op die snelweg kan cruise. Seker maar n turbo op ???

Baie respek vir de ou. Hy ry al so vir n jaar deur Afrika.

The older i get the more I realize that less is more. Recent weekend trip up Sani.
The drybag contains:
2 person hiking tent
sleeping bag
blowup mattress
good selection of tools
spare tube
warm fleece jacket
1xbogroll
second pair of warm gloves
camping blanket
air pump
sandals
socks
kokoi

Small backpack hydration pack (6 litres) for the other odds and ends. This was for a weekend trip and my luggage capacity was used up about 2/3.
On a longer trip through, i don't see myself using much more than this. Maybe another pair of socks, a t-shirt and a change of underwear.
