Early on Sunday Morning, 5 Foresters and an X1 met up at the McDonalds in Woodmead.
It was a nice chilly morning, and plenty of Hot Chocolate and Coffee was had while we waited for every one to arrive.














We headed out along the Old Hennops River Roads, towards Hartbeespoort Dam - along the way collecting another Foz.


With a few loud revs though the tunnel found us on the northern side of the Magaliesberg Mountains.





We stopped off at the Wimpy for Breakfast and a coffee, with plenty of time on our hands.



With full bellies, and sharped minds (thanks to the coffee) we headed off to tackle the Breedts Nek Pass.


























With the heavy rains experienced up on the reef, we were warned that the pass might be a bit more than we could chew - the People giving the advice obviously didn't know the capabilities of the Foresters...


























































With the pass behind us, the need for refreshment had called, and our final destination in close proximity, we headed off the Black Horse Brewery for lunch, and a few Cold Crafts.


























Black Horse has great food and awesome Beer - we filled up a 16 seater table and talked rubbish for 3.5 hours and realized it was time to get on our way.


And so we bid farewell to the friends with who we had shared the day - New and Old.


Was a great day out Fozzying!
