    Bruce daardie pad is altyd sleg!! Jy is werklik gelukig as jy hom goed kry. Ek sal maar Upt om ry as ek jy was. Verloor een tyre en die bietjie brandstof wat jy sou gespaar het is dan nie meer die moeite werd nie.

    Ek het al van Van Zylsrus na die Middelputs grens pos gery en so ongeveer 1km voor die grenspos draai 'n klein paadjie links af, volg hom tot in die Molopo en ry met die pad tot by Askham, ry stadiger maar darem 'n bietjie meer om te sien, tensy jy tyd gebonde is, weet ook nie waarmee jy ry nie.

    We will be staying in Vanzylsrus for one night then heading to Rooiputs in KTP.
    We are not in a rush and would just like to arrive at Rooiputs before dark.....

    This road is not predictable and therfore we avoid it.

    My recommendation: Take shortest route to Mcarthys Rest - cross the border into Botswana (fees are about R130 - Pula 110?) - go tar to Tsabong - take new tar road to Middelputs and then out of Botswana again and take tar RSA road to Twee Rivieren or stay in Botswana and take good gravel road to Two Rivers.

    Bruce, we'll be driving that road from van Zylsrus along the Molopo River to Askam on 14th June. Join us if the timing is right for you. I stay off the tar whenever I can!
