I feel a lot less wise at 45 than I did at 15.

More Guys, For those that did not come due to the rocks only one mag got a scratch, and that was due to young girls (out of the gutters guys) distracting the driver at the wrong time and that was on a stock standard Prado.

So I will be organising another trip to Piesangkloof in the warmer months as I need to see that view without the hazyness of winter.

And would also like to just say a hugh thanks to Mike Els and his wife for opening up their home for our braai afterwards, very hospitable hosts.

See you al there in the summer.

i must say it was a very nice technical route. we absolutely have to go back in summer. the view was amazing this time so I cant imagine what it will look like in summer. and a scratched wheel wasn't the only damage ! I got an extra scratch on my running boards !

I also got a little scratch on my left runningboard, but it's over an existing scratch, so pffffff.
It is a nice techincal route, and unlike a lot of other routes, there's no "play" area. Which is perfectly fine, as the route itself requires a lot of concentration, especially if your vehicle is stock like mine.

I also found that SLOW is just about the only way to go - as soon as you think the path is clear to the next little ridge, and you go a tad faster, boom!!! , klip op middelmanetjie, hidden in the long grass.
Loretta took a bit of punishment between those two front wheels, with a few bumps and scrapes. But her shocks are kaput, and I'm sure her torsion bars can be set up a bit - she's more nose-down than my KZ... And as I said, I tended to go a bit too fast on occasion...

I loved the route, scenery, technical aspects. Reminds a lot of 3Provinsies.
Both these routes have shown me that Loretta needs a bit of a lift, new shocks ( :P ) , sliders, a bash plate, and some other under-body protection...

This route is vehicle-friendly if you are patient and have an eye for good lines. It's basically one long obstacle. :yahoo:
I feel a lot less wise at 45 than I did at 15.
