Bits from a road trip

I’m currently on tour with Haggis & Bong and All Forlorn, two young, interesting and energetic bands from Pretoria/Johannesburg. In order to make it to Port Elizabeth on time we left at 1am on Friday, making the first half of our trip a night drive. Here are some interesting scenes from the trip.

The birds above were impressive to say the least. There were trees full of birds as far as I could see with tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of birds in all.

Yup, these people are everywhere…

Can you spell trafffic?

Good to see a lone wind turbine on the outskirts of PE. Wish there were hundreds more like it.

  1. *jelly beans all round*

    I love roadtrips. Especially the photography thereof.


  2. Hmmm,,, I am with you on that.

    Lets do this!

    Where do we start?

  3. Hmmm,,,

    Garden Route? From Johannesburg to Capetown via East Coastline to Capetown?

    Or maybe Namibia?

    • Sounds good. Although I’d like to get some Karoo in there too.

      • Hmmm,,, I agree.

        How ’bout we go bigger? South African Coastline, all of it. East to West. Criss-Cross through the Karoo?

        • Lol! Sounds good, but probably not within my budget. Road trips can get pretty expensive. How about we start a Google Groups group (or something similar) for the 75 road trip so that those who are interested can all have a decent forum to discuss whatever needs to be discussed. If you think “yes” then I’ll make the group.

  4. Yes — tentatively. My geeky mind starts thinking ‘how’ do I bring it to the ‘fro’ on 75.

    but, yeah, do it — we will sort out the rest later.

    Budget? I am hoping somebody else will pay for it; I am sure we can creatively justify somebody why this roadtrip is very paramount, comrade! (yes, in that political accent)
