We are planning a trip through the Cederberberg

You can join us for;
1. The weekend (2 sleepovers) +-400km
2. The long weekend (4 Sleepovers) +-600km

We are busy with route planning, depending on the number of vehicles that will join for two days only.

We tent camp, but if there is people that needs chalets, we can alter the route accordingly.

We are doing a "tag along" trip, everyone for himself, will post the camping/chalet fees as soon as it's finalised

Loos like fun but a little far for a long weekend for me. You must enjoy.

Dankie vir jou moeite alreeds

Hoppy sounds great. If I can't make it up to the Orange River because of work and other constraints, will definitely join you for the long weekend. Tokkie's wife, will probably join me.... Sorry Tokkie know you would like Amy and I to make it up to the river, but this is a great alternative... :celebrate: :celebrate: :celebrate:

Met die sneeu op die berge en n minder gunstige voorspelling het ek besluit ek het nog genoeg hout by die huis en ek gaan nie die kamp ding doen nie.
My vrou gee nie so maklik n naweek op nie en begin toe bel, na een en n halwe dag gee sy toe wel op, ek sien toe die klomp hout en daai paar bottels gaan nie so lang gesig balanseer nie en ek kom toe op n site af genaamd "lekker slaap", n paar mails en n effens gekweste kredietkaart later is ons oppad Cederberge toe.

Die wereld was nat, koud, verspoel en baie mooi, die Hilux moes hom regmaak vir n nat, modder naweek.

Die huisie in Citrusdal was net reg vir twee, nog in die sestigs geklee, kompleet met tapeseries van n dogterkie wat bid en n oom en tannie op die land, oregon plafonne en een meter dik mure.

...maar dit was warm en droog en die stoof het gewerk al was daar eers geen pot of pan nie.

Die volgende dag het ons bietjie in-gele en die dorp aangedurf, al wat plaas-volk is was daar en die sap van die druif het muldelik gevloei. "You musn't push" is van alle kante gehoor, hulle se mos daai vier letter woord is nie n vloek-woord in die Kaap nie, dis n werk-woord.
En toe besluit ons om grondpad langs agter die dam om, Clanwilliam toe en Vredendal toe te ry, die damme wat oorloop te kyk, vir vriende te kuier en weer agter die berg om terug te kom na die huisie waar die dogterkie steeds bid en die oom en tannie nog kyk hoekom die goed op die land nie groei nie.
Dag twee het dag drie geword, die weer het mooi gedraai en ons is na die Biedow-valei toe waar my vrou in haar element was en my shares het weer n punt of twee geklim.

Van daar, Wupperthal toe, waar die tyd bietjie stil gaan staan het, so eeu of wat terug, die sendeling het darem hier sy werk beter gedoen of die wynlorrie het nooit so ver gekom nie. Daai skoenfabriek lyk deurmakaarder as my werkswinkel in Desember, ek het toe maar nie vir my nuwe vellies daar gekoop nie, ek glo nie hulle sou twee van dieselfde grootte of kleur kon opspoor nie.

Ek het nie daar of die die hele naweek een keer 4x4 gebruik nie, enige voertuig met redelikke grondvry hoogte sal die trippie kan doen.
My gunsteling was die berge, klippe en rotsformasies, ek wil nog so 20 keer terug gaan

Die laaste nag het ons ons laaste vleis gebraai, ek het my boek van my nuwe kamera probeer klaar lees sodat ek biekie beter fotos kan post.
Die volgende oggend moes ons maar die dogterkie los om in vrede te bid, oppak en n lekker roete terug ry, en n paar snappies vat vir oulaas;

Ons het net een ding weer besef, jy het baie naweke nodig om die Cederberge te sien en dis naby genoeg van die Kaap af vir n gewone naweek, so hou julle tenks vol.

Very nice, Mr. Hoppy! Those pics are a lot more colourful than the yellow acid-filled Mine Dumps in my part of the world. ;)
