Definitely a highlight.

Thanks Pete for organizing and Henk and Faan for your hospitality, see you again soon.

Had a brisk ride home with Donovan and now need a new back tyre. ::)

Good luck with the leg Charlie!! :thumleft:

Just spoke to Charlie's wife in the hospital in Worcester. He is in ICU. Broken femur, but his bone marrow went into his bloodstream and now forming a blockkage in the lungs. They are trying to stabilize his breathing. Will keep you updates, but let us be positive.

Is there anything that we can do for Charlie or his family?

Some pic's of the camp that Mangina (sorry... I have just been informed it is "Man-Gyna") took.... My camera is somewhere beneath a pile of dirty kit in the corner of the garage.

When watching a sunset of such beauty, one has to be properly attired (a - tied)  :mwink:
