as ek so na weerskante van die water kyk lyk dit maar baie glad en asof jy lekker diep kan in sak.....

Could be hiding a rock or two... or just nice firm footing under that brown muddy water. :mwink:

Doesn't LOOK that deep - so it must be hiding a lurker...

Ok, so Dorothee approaches the puddle.



With much enthusiasm.



In she goes.





And finds the hole.





Here things start getting interesting in a hurry.  :biggrin:





And here it starts going wrong.



Where she gets it sideways.



And then, like a pro, she pours on the power.  Check the mud flying from the rear wheel!!  :biggrin:







Check the height of that mud behind her!!





Tada!!!







I would have loved to post an audio clip of what I heard in my headset!!  Shear delight!

If you can remain calm while those around you are panicking, then you clearly don't understand the situation.
