    Default Road trip safety -- springbok to knysna via worchester

    No idea what provinces we drive through ( eastern/western cape etc) but would still appreciate some info.

    Enige betogings in daardie gebied ? Watter paaie moet ons eerder ry ? Gaan maandag daar verby

    N2 closed today at Grabouw - I would take the R62 from Worcester to Oudtshoorn (cut across from Citrusdal to Ceres to Worcester from the N7). Short dirt pass outside Citrusdal, otherwise good tar. R62 is beautiful and quiet.

    Dis bietjie ver vir een dag.. Daar was op 'n stadium padwerke in die Citrusdal /Clanwilliam area.. Anderkant Porterville gaan jy ook deur 'n paar stop en go' s opgehou word.
    Daarna is dit plain sailing via Worcester tot Robertson. Ashton en Montagu het weer padwerke as jy Karoo deurgaan.. Swellendam en N2 res van die pad het ek nie onlangs gery nie so weet nie van oponthoude as julle daai kant om beplan nie. Ten minste word ons paaie goed in stand gehou hier in die Wes Kaap so ons gee nie om vir so bietjie stop hier en daar nie..
    Onluste en betogings is hier nie op die oomblik nie...

    Julle is altyd welkom om Maandagaand by ons oor te bly op Worcester as die pad nog te ver te ver klink Knysna toe +-400km(Worcester - Springbok 550km)
    Hier is meer as 20 Kelders in die omgewing as julle dors is

    Just realised you will pick up some Afrikaburn traffic from Ceres, but it won't be bad.

    I would do The N7 to past Citrusdal, onto the R44 through the Rooi Karoo, Porterville, Tulbagh, Worcester, Robertson, Swellendam, Tradouws pass to Barrydale, along the R63 to Oudtshoorn, down to George, and through the 7 passes route to Knysna

    Ek dink die padwerke is nogal groot tussen Ashton en Montagu, en ek het gehoor van lang wagtye, ek sal Worchester, Ashton na Swellendam ry (mooi en lekker pad). By Mosselbaai teer hulle die N2, maar hulle begin eers weer teer gooi Woensdag. En dit is dubbelbaan so sal nie Stop/Go wees nie
