Roads in a distance.
« on: August 16, 2010, 08:22:39 pm »
I just love photos of roads in the distance/down in the valley/over the horizon/on the ridge. Please add some for us to
feast our eyes on. Will add a few I took.
Gamsbergpas.

Matjiesvlei.

Gamkaskloof.

Close to Rosh Pinah. Namibia.

Between Opuwo and Sesfontein.

Sani pass
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee

My kind of thread! Some awesome photos so far, here are my meagre contributions. (Wish I had more recent photos - time to go riding!)

I do not think that dying is a good idea.
Living doing something that you love is a good idea.
Living until you die is a good idea. If living happens to kill you it means you made a mistake, but we are human, and humans make mistakes, so go for it, enjoy it, live until you die, rather than not living for your whole life.

Jobs are kinda scarce over here at the moment (I am looking though  :biggrin: )

Come on over, we will go ride but it has to be soon, the hippie tree hugger mofo's  are trying to shut down all of the government land where we ride today.
