Wat 'n naweek! :thumleft:

1. Veldblom, Veldbrand en Maretha. Julle is ysters! Moerse dankie vir al julle harde werk! :thumleft: :thumleft: 8) Shark_ZA also helped a lot at the meat station as well as the prize giving. Thanks mate! :thumleft: Ok. Kilroy also did some work Friday afternoon. :eek:  :eek7: :imaposer:

2. Adam and Maudie. Thanks a lot for your perfect hosting of the bash. Kan nie beter gewees het nie! Bykosse was great en genoeg! Site is awesome!

3. Adam ran around and made fire every evening, sweating like a pig and leaving the dogs  to kuier. :biggrin:  8)

4. Aan my reis genote, Zetman, Groenie dag 1 en DB9 ook gister. Dankie vir die bestuur terug gister. Sou dit nie op my eie kon maak gister nie. 8) En dankie vir die lekker lag in die bakkie en jou interesante "running narrative" on the geological aspects along the roads, DB9! :biggrin: :thumleft:

5. Die bar men. Thanks a lot! These guys must have been out on their feet yesterday. Think they went on till 03H00 on Saturday morning and started again at around 09H00 same day till late again. 190 odd dogs clamoring for booze non-stop! Maudie had to go replnish their bar stock Saturday morning quick-quick. Het die honne bietjie onder skat. :biggrin: Thanks guys! :thumleft:

6. Aan die res. 6 years now. No problems ito of general "discipline".  ::) :biggrin: Seriaas. Dis moerse lekker om met 'n skoon gewete 'n bash te beplan en om die site te verlaat na die tyd. Befark! Julle almal rock! 8) :thumleft:

Ek weet ek mis dalk 'n ding of twee maar is seker dit sal uitkom soos die thread aangaan.


Funniest moment for me amongs many: Jacko wat 'n impromto balet dans doen om die vuur saam met 'n onverwagte en onwelkom Red Roman! :imaposer:

We usually have a long chat at every "Bash" he is a total gent, but takes advantage with great coversation when I am 95% through the day and struggle to match his intelect. But yes he is older than even me I reckon 8)

Jules and Li home safe and sound!


Had an epic time!!!

We stoetied up to the venue on Wednesday leaving JHB at 3am and arriving in Vioolsdrif at 5pm! and a sweltering 40 degrees  :o
Set up out tent and hit the bar to introduce ourselves to the friendly bar staff. after a few cold ones we lit the Swannie for some chow, Kilroy and Co arrived at around 9 and after assisting with getting them sorted we hit the bar again.

A Dip in the Orange! Water was awesome and flowing fast!!


View from our tent




Camp Site with free dog!   ;D 
Such great muts and they were very amusing company the entire weekend!


Getting to know the bar!!




Swannie Time



Thursday morning we were on the road at 7:30 am and into Nam!!

Lots of Fokol!




The Lorrie!



Canon Road House








After Canon we headed to Seeheim where I had a lekker swim at the hotel and had a cold beer  ;)
Did I mention it was CRAZY Hot!!!

Our initial plan was to do 400ks and then find a place to camp but by 3pm we had done 400ks and it was still way to hot to stop so we kept on till around 5pm, I saw a green tree line about 20ks west of the road we were on and we left the road and headed into the bush, after a bit of scouting we found a stunning shady spot in the dry river bed. We set up camp, had a braai and made a nice camp fire and proceeded to polish of 2L of warm red wine! What a feeling camping in the middle of nowhere with no sign of civilisation for miles in any direction!










After a great nights sleep we packed up and headed out towards Rosh Pinah at around 7:30am
This section of road was GREAT! nice fast sections with loads of sandy drifts to keep you on your toes!
Li and I were playing nicely and flew threw the drifts side by side at speed with smiles and shouts of"WhoooHooo!"

Once we hit the tar section just before Rosh Pinah the temp dropped to 10 degrees I was surprised at how quickly the temps changed from day to day here!


We made it back to the Border at Vioolsdrift at 12 and had a nice lunch at the Wimpy and got back to the venue by 1pm.

Here things got very festive very quickly!!!
Was great to chat dop and laugh with old friends and to make new ones!!

Bokom Bende!

Looks like MJ only got up to change his shirt ;D





Pity I missed this.  Sure you missed sticking your ass in my face too Jules...?
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.
