Post by ChristoEngelbrecht on 1st December 2008, 07:44

I am going on the 4 Corners tour this December. The planning is completed and at this stage I can not wait to get on the bike with the wife and do it. Me and the wife already did quite a few long distance trips with trips of around 1450Km per day. So we are quite prepared for this trip.

I read a lot about the trip and I agree that you actually should not book overnight places in advance. I actually had to book and pay in advance since the December holiday does not allow for any mistakes. Basically all accomodation are fully booked.

We also opted for more luxury and decided to only stay in B&B's as far as possible.

Me my wife and a friend both on 2009 spec BMW K1200LT's will be leaving Cape Town on the 13th December.

First stop will be Cape Aughullas and then further to Barrydale for lunch at the Country Pumpkin. First night sleep over would be in Willowmore. From there on with the single lane concrete road to Steytlerville through to our second night in Gonubi. Next two nights we will stay in Margate. From there onwards to St Lucia. Next morning to Kosi Bay and sleep over in Piet Retief. From Piet Retief we continue to Sabie. The next night will be in Pontdrift. From Pontdrift we will travel south to Secunda for a few days with my family. From there to Harties for Xmas with the son and daughter.

The 30th December we will again leave for Upington. The next day to Augrabies which is a very short trip, but I would like to stay over and enjoy the falls. Next morning to Alexander bay where we will sleep over. From there we will travel south to Citrusdal for our last night. The next morning we again will have a short trip back to Gordons Bay.

The planning was really the first part of the trip and with this done we are all looking forward to the actual trip.

I will post a full trip report when we are back, with all the photo's just to make everybody's mouth water.

Nice 21 day trip (if I counted it correctly). We will be awaiting your report and pictures. Smile

Safe riding.

Ek gaan nou my laptop "Mothball" en hy sal eers weer as alles goed gaan die 4de Januarie aangesit word. Die lang pad wag.

Ek moet net eers aan almal 'n geseŽnde Kersfees en 'n voorspoedige nuwe jaar toewens. Hoop julle geniet die feestyd net soveel as ek.

Ek sal die trip report post vroeg in die nuwe jaar.

Moet nou die LT was en blink kry vir die pad. Dan is dit die pakkery. Dit is definitief moeiliker om 'n fiets te pak as om 'n 4X4 met 'n sleepwa te pak.

Ek is nou in Secunda. Het sommer die seun se laptop geanekseer. Ek het Maandag oggend die derde corner gedoen. Kuier nou so 'n bietjie by die familie en sal weer 30 Desember verder gaan na Upington, Augrabies en dan 1 Januarie na Alexanderbaai.

Ek geniet nog die toer en sal sodra ek terug by die huis is die verslag begin skryf.

Geniet die vakansietyd.
