Nee magtag >:( Ek sal 'n bietjie balans hier moet inwerk! Dis darem nie net BM's wat langpad kan loop nie :patch: Netnou kry van die newbies hier 'n heeltemal verkeerde indruk :D

1. Op die Pakhuispas pad tussen Clanwilliam en Calvinia, Maart 2007 (hierdie een is ook dan-en-wan onder die "banner" foto's hierbo),
2. Op die Ceres-Karoo snelweg (R355), Maart 2008, en
3. Oppad na Hofmeyr vanaf Burgersdorp, Maart 2008. Hofmeyr l daar voor.
