Greetings!
I have a few more pics as well, some with interesting captions (read below the photo's)
Generally we are dogs with few words, but many beers!
KTM99er joined us for his first long WD ride, and enjoyed it immensely.
Grantis is back to his old self after his Bosvark Bash-crash, and Tommy fell off his 'Alp after fing a nice deep gulley/washout near Verkykerskop.
The Natal and FS are wonderfully green at the moment.
Below I'll attach our gps tracks for you to check our route.... enjoy.
