Long Way Home - Rosslyn to the East
« on: October 31, 2011, 10:23:43 pm »
Vandat ek in Rosslyn werk, het ek die mite gehoor n mens kan van daar tot in Cullinun ry via grondpad...  :peepwall:  ek wou net tot in PTA oos ry... het old school beplan en net met google maps n roete beplan...  :lamer: basically to head in a eastern direction...  :deal:


Die begin . . .




Onroute over and under a bridge




die "kwik" het op n tyd tot 38.5 C gestyg. . .  :dousing:


die Transnet Pyramid south gruisgate naby Lavender weg

Naby die Warmbad tolhek op die N1 is daar die wal..

is 3 keer uit met die GSA. . .  :mwink:


WHAT AN ADRENELIN RUSH!!! :bounce: :bounce:

And some foties taken on the Service route just before entering Mamelodi





Het oos gery tot en met plus minus uit gekom by die asgate by Hatherly, Hans Strydom...

Afstand Afgele : +- 53 km... I think not to bad...  :thumleft:
