We arrived at Trout Haven at 14h00 today, and have got everything prepared for the long portage tommorow up SSteyns kloof to the finish at Diemersfontien. I would be telling porkie pies if I did not say we are crapping ourselves, the last day of the Freedom Challenge is renown for being the toughest day. But to get here we had a marvelous stop at Motague where we were hit with an over dose of civilization that seemed to assault you. Vehicles, roast dinner, whiskey and room service, of course we tried them all just could not arrange a massage as it was a Sunday ! We then rode on through McGregor to Kasra, I'm sure McGregor has something good about it, we just missed it. But at Kasra Mmmmm lamb shank, lemon merengue pies and good company from the girls. We left just after 06h00 and had a good ride. Now we wait, there is a bunch coming in behind us we hear so we may have company tommorow, we will wait and see. Hopefully the next blog will be from the finish !!
