Hoe lyk die pad tussen Patensie en Steytlerville. Dit is 'n grond pad en sal ek daar kan ry met 'n half ton bakkie en 'n sleepwa ? Ek hoor daar is 'n lang drif wat tot knie diepte styg, so 20 meter lank. Is dit te ver om deur water te ry.
Iemand het gese as ek 'n stuk seil op die voorkant van die bakkie laat hang dan sal die water nie by die lug filter in gaan. Dit sal net vir diep water kruisings gebruik word. Sal so iets werk ?

From Patensie you will have to go back to N2 near Humansdorp, then 17km on N2 to R62 then Kareedouw, Joubertina, Avontuur and Uniondale. Then N9 to  Willowmore, Aberdeen and Graaf Reinette

Thanx Pmdb. Would you say the road is more scenic via R62 or via Uitenhage ?

Rusty,
Both roads have enough scenic on it, but it depends how fast you want to get to GR.

Saddam, I prefer the more scenic route. Time is relative when we are on holiday. Getting to our destination is part of the fun.

From GR to Aberdeen is 55km, from there to Willowmore is about 130km and then to Uniodale about 90km. I believe from Uniondale to the Humansdorp/Patensie road where you'll turn off to go via Kareedouw and Joubertina is about 150km, not 100% on the last one.
