The Sweepers have picked up the Honeymooners at Willowmore - Leon and Andries pulled off the big double through the Baviaanskloof today, with a brief pitstop at Golden Crust for chocolate pudding. Waiting in Willowmore were Chris and Julia, who arrived earlier this morning but decided to stay: "We're having such a good time, we don't want it to end..!" they said. Tomorrow the four of them can form a nice little paceline across the desert to Prince Albert - the earlier you arrive, the more time for pampering at Dennehof.

Robbie left Prince Albert early this morning and made it to Gamkaskloof without incident. After brunch he went on to Rouxpos - the waffles and an afternoon beer seem to have kept him there, so the sandpits of Anysberg will have to wait until tomorrow.
Also at Rouxpos tonight is Solo Eric - he came through from a night in Gamkaskloof and after many photos and home brewed coffee stops along the way, eventually rolled into the support station by late afternoon. Eric may not be solo for much longer, he knows the Anysberg area well, so Robbie would be wise to follow his lines through the sandpits tomorrow.

Moving up the trail, there's quite a big gap until we find the next riders - all the way to Trouthaven in fact. Overnighting there we have Guy and the Adams Family as well as Philip. They came through from Montagu today, with a lunch stop at Kasra along the way. Andy and Peter are also there, having left Kasra this morning after a hearty breakfast. These guys will probably stick together up Stettynskloof tomorrow - unless Guy decides to drop the 'old guys.'
