  • That week-before-the-trip-feeling...

    Oh man, I got it bad...

    Next week Wednesday i'm off to the lowveld for 5 days, 4 nights my first real break this year.

    Got the GS all sorted & ready, TLS ready to rock, borrowed a 2 bike trailer I'm gonna hitch behind my 540i so I can take both bikes on the short 2 hour trip to riding heaven, got all my gear sorted - leathers for serious canyon carving on the TL, new off road gear for ADV riding, toolbox inventory checked, booze & cooler boxes ready, reservations made at a way cool lodge overlooking the Graskop gorge, a mix of about 20 riders, all my racing buddies, we're calling each other 100 times a day with "don't forget this, that, or the other"...

    Roll on Wednesday, I can't fucking wait !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Did I say I can't fucking wait ?!

              that sounds like a blast.

              I got a similar cant fucking wait thing going on. going to the AMA Superbike Races Saturday and Sunday. I did a track day there earlier this year, so its gonna be so cool watching Mladin and Yates tearing it up on the same track. It will be like, i know what that turn is like, albeit 100mph slower than those guys...

                  You wont be able to call home because you'll leave the mobile phone charger behind and the phone will be flat.

                          Okay, now that place looks cool. The luxury timber lodges thing is what I would dig.
                          So, I gotta ask. How much does a place like that cost?, considering the exchange rates and difference in economies?

                          If that were down around here (would be tough, we are a bit flat for waterfalls) it would prolly be $150-$200 a night. This is where we took our last vacation http://www.washingtonstinn.com/. It isn't S. Africa, but there is a Fogarty Ave nearby!

                            Lone Creek is nothing special in the lowfeld. We have tons of places like that around. The lowfeld is very popular with German tourists.

                            A luxury Timber lodge at lone Creek costs about US$90 per night for locals, but there are "local Rates" and "international rates" if you know what I mean...
