    Nice! I did the Gray Creek Pass Friday - that was some punishing heat. The ol’ Versys sucked it up better than expected, too. Sadly, my dehydrated brain decided not to take pics, but I managed a quick drone video at the rec site.

    Two nights in Kimberley, toured around the East Koots a bit on Saturday- only some mild gravel that day. Stayed in a nice basement suite AirBNB just off the Platzl, and enjoyed the local food and some bevvys.

    Didn’t get out as much as I wanted. 3 days gives you no time when there is family commitments. But did find this 58646AD5-8AE5-426B-8F64-1994349DA12B.jpeg 955B0D14-F51D-4B36-9035-5DA0807E9AF7.jpeg
