Pomeroy (?) was somewhat damp. The guy in the hoodie is making off having just stolen a pork chop...






The rain was pretty relentless. We were mighty glad to get to Giant's Castle in the Drakensburg. There it is, in the mist. Funny thing, last time I was here (in about 1973) the weather was the same Main difference from then is that we were constantly pestered by kids in rags in '73, now all the kids are wearing smart school uniforms - there are schools everywhere- so that has got to be a change for the better.



Nice place to stay



Useful woodburning stove in our rondavel.



The next day conditions on the road weren't good for a bike fitted with Bridgestone DeathWings. That wet clay was slippy We were due to try the Sani Pass, but I doubted by now that it could be done.



Bridgestone DeathWings. Useless on tarmac (I've got a set on mine at home) useless on dirt. Gimme TKCs next time!



If only this tarmac went for more than 100m in either direction.



Heading up the Sani Pass. This is OK!



Yep. definitely can do this...



Hmm, not looking so good.



Front Anakee looks reasonably OK, gonna try a set on my bike.



Looks real bad. Can you believe I dropped the bike in a car park turning round (sorry guys), not in this? Luck, not skill I can tell you..
