Hi Jorry

As julle tot by Goldengate gaan ry, kan julle kyk of julle Sentinel Peak kan doen. Dit is verby Qwa Qwa (Phuthaditjhaba), Witsieshoek. Ongelooflike uitkyk punte maar wel n bietjie stap. As daar mense is wat moeilik stap, kan julle net die eerste deel klim. Die uitsig is baie mooi van hier.

As julle verder kan stap en lus is vir n bietjie afontuur kan julle tot bo waar die Tugela valle (Tweedehoogste ter werleld) is stap via die kettang lere.

Die uitsig is baie mooi van bo, hoop net nie iemand het hoogtevrees nie dit is :surprised: hoog.

Die Royal National Park is ook n baie lekker plek om te kamp/bly. n Mens kan dan tot die voet van die valle stap.

As julle Royal National Park toe gaan, ry deur Geluksburg op en nie deur Oliviershoekpas nie. Dit is iets anders en min mense weet van die pas.

Alle sterket met die beplanning.

Ek kan wel beam dat Rebellie se onderste roete baie lekker is. Die berg-roete is egter 'n mors van tyd as jy 'n Patrol ry.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Dankie Petri. Ons het Leoba probeer, maar hulle is vol. Ons gaan by Rebellie bly. Ek ken vir Nic Prinsloo wat Rebellie bestuur, so dit help ook.
