Forgive me but I'm too lazy to write a report.
I'll just post these pics instead:


masehare brought a snack


Butch's 990 mysteriously runs out of brake fluid










In some places the sand got so bad it was easier to cut across the veldt...


...but not always


tough morning for Butch... it would improve though ;D


Lightning bolt exploded this telephone pole


Time for a beer


Roadworks. Annoying


Back on dirt




Lunch made it so far. Just a little dusty


Late in the day. Shadows are getting longer


Next day. Groenie's trailer







The ride home was less pleasant. My arse felt like it was on fire the whole way. Did KiLRoy sodomise me without my knowing?

Ok so a micro bash turned into a mini-bash at Hoopstad and developed into a full scale National Bash at VanderKloof! Our 3rd Nat Bash! :thumleft:

On Thursday morning Laurika and Malawi Jones left for VanderKloof and I headed to work to finalize some month end stuff before the first of the Wilddogs arrived. At about 2pm I headed into town to fetch the extra petrol and met some Katoomers and a Hp in the main street. After directions were given they headed towards my house with the people on the sidewalk "ooohhhhh"-ing and "eish" -ing as some crazy Katoomer did his wheelie in the main street. I was expecting police sirens anytime :peepwall:

I got home and a party had already started.......

Trials are survivable. We must keep our eternal perspective through the tough times.

We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed and broken. We are perplexed, but we donít give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going.Ē (2 Cor. 4:8-9 NLT)

Ek wou nog altyd na n bash toe gegaan het, maar lyk my dis maar beter dat ek die een misgery het.

Dis maar swaar om die enigste nugter ou op n party te wees.

Cater die bash darem vir die nugter ouens ook, of is dit deesdae n verskoning om te drink?

Hoekom het julle nie liewer visstokke saamgevat en gaan "hengel" nie. Dan het julle mos n verskoning gehad om te gaan drink.

En om te dink party ouens het oor n duisend kilo's gery om te gaan gesuip raak! Het julle nie pubs waar julle bly nie?

dis maar net Hentie en ETS wat nie weet hoe om hulleselwers te gedra nie....................... :biggrin:

We waited for some more dogs to pitch till 4h30pm because I wanted to take the guys to the Lion farm just outside of town (about 3kms) My daughter kept the lions occupied so the guys could take some nice action shots! :drif:

So these guys enjoyed touching the lions and cheetahs so much....some of the comments cannot be posted here 'cause what happens at a bash stays at the bash, and this qualified for a mini bash - 18 guys and 2 ladies!  :pot:

Milkybar, looks like you are an excellent hostess. Pity we couldn't  make Thursday. If the bash next year is in that general direction we'll make a plan for sure!!

TM....
Sorry Babe I am still riding.

This Lion had the most beautiful eyes I have seen in a very long time!  :o

After this trippie we headed home so everyone could pitch their tents and wash up before we head to the restaurant for dinner. Some guys could believe their eyes when they ordered a hamburger......we'll wait for him to post his pic! :deal:

Friday morning the guys was up very early ( I thought they'll only rise after 7 due to only going to bed after 2am) :mwink: Some had coffee and other had beer for breakfast  :coffee2: :occasion14:

Evidence of the night after all over my garden! :whip2:

Haba's HP decided it didn't want to start - jumpstarting it wouldn't work so we loaded it onto the trailer and took it to BMW Kimberley for a battery. Sandrider decide he'll take the group on a different route towards Bloemhof Hotel for breakfast. Some one mentioned that Sandrider will have to proove that he CAN ride sand to earn a name like that :peepwall: And so he proved it! :thumleft:

Did the Cruiser thing to get to the Bash :dousing:

Shopping for a towel (nogal Colibri) and some Zeff T-shirts :eek7:



Before everything started - looks very calm



Following the GPS for shortest route on the way back led to this type of road and eventually locked gates :patch:



The re-routing(s) caused us to run a little late and let us photograph this

I know nothing but I can not prove it,,,,,

After Cave Girl's tumble some guys turned toward the tar towards Hertzogville while another group went further to Boshoff. They'll have to post the pics plz!
We were in Kimberley for quite a few hours waiting for the battery to charge just to hear that they'll have to buy another one cause the batteries has got a problem. Left Kimberley for Van Der Kloof just after 4pm - did tar most of the way to make up time and to make the journey for Tweetie easier due to his damaged body! :thumleft:

Miskien moet jy 'n bash bywoon en vir jouself besluit.
Jou selfbekakking pas nie hierdie thread nie, begin 'n nuwe in R&P
Nee wat  - ek dink die twatwaffle kan by die huis bly
As a matter of fact why don't you just stay away from the forum
Maybe you must come so that we can f@ck you up nicely at the next bash!

I think what Pleco is trying to say is "Wow what fun I'm sorry I missed it!"

About sums it up! It is on my to do list.

But I definitely don't envy the hangovers some guys had. Then they can't even remember how much fun they had.

Ag shame. I almost felt sorry for some of the okes on the morning after pics. Almost. :mwink:
