Hey Tawny, Cheetz and MM tanx for the comments.
Mouse I know how you feel about getting side tracked, but I have been putting a roof over my deck which has resulted in tennis / tendinitis elbow. So now we can continue with the TR.

Morning of the 27th December we packed up the caravan as we were off to Lower Sabie. I informed Grandad that I would like to take a drive down the Orpen Road as we were not going to be there for another year. He agreed and what a drive it was.

Before we go driving I forgot this picture and now you know how lunch just walked past.
