Ek wonder maar net wanneer is 'n pas, 'n pas. 'n Pas soos ek dit verstaan is wanneer jy 'n berg oorsteek. Scratch Ek het al plekke gery wat hoog  is maar jy gaan nie actually oor iets nie


TR jy behoort dit interesant te vind:

Ek ken daai dokument goed. Baie interresant.

Lyk my dis soms 'n pas as jy 'n rivier ook oorsteek.

Interresante draad.

Volgens my is die volgende verkeerd:
Kowyn pass is in Mpumalanga tussen Graskop en Hazyview
Longtompas is in Mpumalanga tussen Lydenburg en Sabie
Robberspass is in Mpumalanga by Pelgrimsrus

Daar is ook passe tussen die volgende plekke, maar ek ken nie hulle name nie:

Lydenburg  -  Burgersfort  ....   Ek dink dit is die Watervalsrivier pas
Nelspruit  -  Barberton
Lydenburg - Roossenekal

Viking en ander moet maar help.


Tussen ons klomp behoort ons die meeste te kan uitsort.

Now this is an interesting challenge. From now on my holidays will be aimed at areas with a high number of passes. Also interesting to see Gauteng has only one.

Dit is die eerste keer dat ek sien Hornsnek word as 'n pas beskou.  Scratch Dit is ongeveer 20km van my af en ek ry van tyd tot tyd daaroor. As dit so is, behoort heelwat ander "-nekke" ook passe te wees. Wat is die definisie van 'n pas?

Geen idee nie Scratch Ek het die lys maar so gekry.

Maar as ons die passe begin ry sal ons vinnig vir mekaar kan se wat die moeite werd is en wat nie.

Het jy 'n foto van daai nek? Jy is die eerste persoon hier wat 'n hele provinsie se passe klaar gemaak het Cheesy

In die Boek The Romance of Cape Mountain Passes deur Graham Ross is daar heelwat meer passe gelys as wat op ons Wes Kaap lys is. Paarde Poort en die Groot Brak Pas is byvoorbeeld ook op, alhoewel die Groot Brak Pas maar redelik minor is (Eisbein - onthou jy ons het oor daai "passie" gery in ons Roam Free trip).

Hy gee ongelukkig nie 'n definisie vir 'n pas nie.

Soos dit vir my lyk is 'n Pas 'n pad wat oor 'n berg of rivier loop, of deur 'n Poort soos Meirings Poort.

Middelbergpas is tussen Op die berg en Citrusdal

Gannagapas is in die Tankwa Karoo voor Middelpos

Dasklippas is bokant Porterville

Grootrivierpas is in die Sederberge

Katbakkiespas is net voor Kagga Kamma

PMDB, what is the name of the pass there near Cederberg Oasis. After Op op die berg.

TR, I was in the Cederberg in 2007 but did not take photos of all the passes we drove. Also Phantom Pass and Homtini Pass near Knysna. I have driven those many times but those were the days before digital camera.
