    Andre,

    Kev organising the booze means you gonna be drinking red juice - Kev likes to drink by colour What Landy you got ? If you a Landy driver you can't be half-bad

    ha ha ha!

    Drinks tomorrow evening then chaps? As for that masseuse... she still hasn't made me lasagne as promised Grant...

    And now I'll get back on topic before this thread gets kicked...

    DO you stay on the river itself? Is access restricted? Or can one just walk up it for as long as one likes?

    Um, I do recall upturned faces when I brought the cane and rasberry juice out at the Richtersveld... but an hour later that bottle and the mix was finished...... the cane train- once you get on it, you cant get off...

    Darryl doesnt drive a Landy, he drives a friggin house on wheels that happens to have a landy sticker on it...

    I think you can explore. If you read the report there are two big pools that can be float tubed. The pics on their website seem to show that the river is Groot (er.. ja) and I am sure we would be able to explore.

    Red Juice?? I grew up on Yakka.

    I am having lasagne for dinner tonight.

    I see you guys are fast discovering all my secret spots

    Mount Cedar is a fantastic spot guys. As the crow flies, it is about 12km from De Mond. It is situated upstream of De Mond. The Groot joins the Maatjies about 2km from De Mond, which in turn becomes the Doring.

    They don't advertise it, but there is a basic camping facility at Mnt Cedar aswell. Here is a pic of Robin frolicking in the water. We had the place to ourselves.
