Soos julle reeds gelees het uit die vorige blog – Weskus Hokkie Weskus Hemel was die trippie na Die Hel reeds in wording en eintlik klaar beplan. Verblyf was effe van ‘n issue maar die stofpad gode het gekyk na ons en dinge so laat uitwerk soos ek oorspronklik wou ry.

When asked "what are you doing this weekend?" the answer has to be "yes please!"

The ride was discussed at the Donford bash last Thursday, rough-hewn late that night, confirmed Friday evening and executed madly all weekend.
And what a brilliant ride it was.

The evening before it was agreed by all that we would have breakfast at 7.00am and be ready to leave by 8.00am.

As I don’t sleep that well when away from home I omitted to set my alarm as I usually wake up to the rising sun and the stroll around till breakfast.

Well yes you guessed it, opening the curtain to let the morning sun in would have helped and I only woke up to the rest of the guys walking past my room to breakfast.

Merweville had become a point of discussion between Wayne and myself for quite some time now and when a last min opportunity arose for Wayne to join a club ride to there, he jumped at it.

 Ever since his return from this ride he just wouldn’t stop about how great the ride was and we should go there soon.

 Since it doesn’t take much to convince me to explore new places I agreed at the first chance I could. We agreed that Wayne would put the ride together this time.

Well, let me take this early opportunity to that Wayne and I differ greatly in this area.

Andy's "trip teaser" on the forum was very tempting: 

'A Must-Do trip on your calendar," he said. "OFF ROAD. You can dream you went on it, wish you were on it or you can book and get onto the trip."

True to form, the trip filled up very quickly.

As always, Andy delivered on the promise: We had it all - sun, wind, rain, thunder and lightning, hail (yep, the hard white stuff), slippery mud, sand, rocky ascents, smooth gravel, loose gravel and more.
