My Ride Home Today - test roving report
« on: March 02, 2006, 05:12:29 pm »
I left for home a bit early today so decided to go ride the KLR through the short cut by Samrand.
There was a bit of water on the ground, and some thick sand patches to keep you alert, good fun.

This little jaunt takes you behind Blue Valley, looking real good after the rains.



There are two wier crossings and some gravel tracks to follow, better than riding the N1. So it took me 40 minutes to get home, who cares

Yes, its a wier, you can see how deep it is, it doesnt get much deeper than that.

I will try and get photos from my camera to my phone next, that involves my laptop but dont see it as cheating...
Here are some more phone pics.
Down to the dams.


I spent 20 minutes riding around this section with ramps, jumps and hills. Great fun.


The second wier crossing. Some locals were fishing to the right of this pic. Olievenhoutsbosch is not far. In fact I rode through the center of it to get the main road again.

Vodacom Moz does not support GPRS. We are busy assisting them in rolling it out, should be ready by June.

M-Cel Mozambique does offer it, but only on certain towers near Maputo. So I don't think you are going to have much luck....

Very novel but kinda pointless unless you wish to show us something newsbreaking :lol: (I'm only reading this 6hours after the fact) :wink:

Still... nice to know one can keep everyone up to date 'almost' live
