"Heating up the oven to 180'C"

Watching YOU



We went to VanRhynsdorp, stayed at Maskam Guest Farm. very nice.
Next day, went up Gifberg pass, drove around at the top for a while(getting "lost", because "this stupid Garmin thing must be wrong") Some of it got us into nice chalenging tracks, meant for tractors or Bell trucks......., and ending in closed gates" DO NOT ENTER"
Then we found our ways, went down Ouberg Pass, almost made it to VanRhynsdorp. Approx 15 km from VanRhynsdorp....we turned around, because we could.............
 ;D
Went back over the mountain, down Gifberg Pass again, found the "Bakoond" and "water trench".....

Next day we came back via west of N7, Paleisheuwel, up to Piekenierskloof from NW side, stopped for breakfast at top, took the old pass down("Private Road"), then via Eendekuil, Piketberg, Koringberg, Mooreesburg, back roads of Malmesbury.



Damm  :( back on tar.

A nice weekend  -850 km later. No trouble, except once engine temp up to 102'C
