Here it goes again.

Why does my PC screen get blurry so often today ?

Would be great to do this ride as a big group for Glen.

I second this. May it become the "Amanda's Grave" of Bastervoetpad, simply called Glen's tree.

Maybe even start a stone cairn?

I think there is a stone cairn and my idea is in anycase to go lay a stone to wish Glen a good journey.

And of course, if the National Bash is somewhere in that direction later in the year, we can do a ride to the top of Bastervoetpad, as it will just about be along everyones route.

Thanks Glen. It is on my list for 2012. Will let you know so we can have a drink together. I travel through Elliot every Desember on my way to Cape St Francis for the Dec holiday. I love driving through your area and town before I do the Umtata route.

Sorry Frans.  I think you missed this.  :'(

Many may not know, but this celebration of Glen's memory yesterday, happened on his brother, Smuggy's, birthday.

A very nice, coincidental tribute.  :thumleft:
