Ok so I just went through the pain of downloading my photos from Photobucket (one by one mind you as the 'download album' just doesn't work) and then uploaded it somewhere else before modifying the posts here to point to the new location.
It was quite a pain to wade through the pop-up ads on the 'free version' of Photobucket.

Least I can do for my effort is to selfishly bump this RR to get a bit of free press out of it

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Wow tanks for sharing again. Did quite a few of those roads earlier this year and it brought back good memories.

Thanks, nice trip and it always makes me jealous when the wives ride with as mine won't.
It is always good to not pass a turnoff if it looks interesting.
The karoo has it's charm and garden route a different one.
One day you must try Noneking's area in eastern tvl if you haven't , it does the same type of contrast if you go up towards giyani and then Venda and those mountains are just amazing!
Ideas for a future trip. :pot:

More Eisbein

Sorry, maar my kommetaar het ek gestuur voordat ek klaaar geskryf het.

Ek is spyt dat ek nie die rapport twee jaar gelede gelees het nie, want ek het hopeloos verdwaal onderweg na Double Drift.

Geen gps of kaart, ry maar op gevoel.

Wie is die familie wat op Somerset Oos woon?  Ek ken n paar Somersetoosers.

Nou wag ek met belangstellling vir jul volgende vakansie  :3some:.

Thanks for the comments all

Was hoe ons dinge op daardie stadium ook gedoen het.
Kaart ge'scan' en die dag se roete so groot as moontlik op A4 geprint en dit in die bokant van die tankbag.
:biggrin:

Hulle is nou al weer in P.E., maar was 'n paar jaar daar.
