Hi Glen

Stunning route - did it in February this year. Really enjoyed your photos.

I have this on my Bucket List... bit far from home to quickly do 100 km though - but next time I'm in the area! ;D

BVP2: S31.18862 E28.10410
BVP3: S31.32239 E28.01578

And the red dot town in the South is Elliott.
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.
