Just been down to the Knysna George area. Decided to take in as many passes as we could. Went up to Goudveld and across to George via The Seven Passes. It was really awesome. Mostly dirt and very slippery in the rain.

Yesterday we went on the "closed" road from Paradise Valley to Humaansdorp on the old R102. What an experience. At times the road sags down the slope and there are some real tight corners. So abandoned. And right in the gorge forests. Would do it again in a heart beat.

Beautiful area! Great to see you enjoyed.
You probably enjoyed the drive too much to stop for pics! 😝👍
It happens to me all the time!

I am afraid so. Took some with my other camera, but I have to get them onto my ox first.

I'm mostly going to be based around George. We'll see how far we drive. Swartberg might be the furthest.

You must look up the Seven passes between George and Knysna. Best road ever.
And maybe a trip to Vleesbaai to drive in the dunes.

Thanks guys. I will update my post when I can sit in front of my PC. I broke my foot so not too mobile just yet.
