Tiervlei to Modderdrif


When we woke this morning the reality of where we were really sunk in. The sun rise was just magnificent.

The camp is on the side of a hill with a view over miles and miles of Karoo with the bikes on top just behind us.

If you want to get away from it all this is the place!

Once again we had people with starting issues this morning

The road back over the farm looks totally different in daylight. I don’t know what we stressed about. It’s a beautiful area. A different beauty than what I’m used to. Our country has so many beautiful places to offer.

We had much less distance today – to Carnavon first for petrol and a visit to the renowned Blikkies Bar. Ektoknbike would travel to the next farm by bakkie and the more intelligent among us threw our luggage on the back.

Next up – Loxton. What a nice town! Neat, well looked after and you can hit the gravel right from your front door.

More Dirt Highways.

At Modderdrif the partying started early. The pet mongoose (?) was a big hit also.

I was knackered after the first night and hit the sack early. The partying continued until 4am
