To Hell with the Full Moon

Watch the moon set and the sun rise simultaneously,
not possible anywhere else on earth.

Heads up y'all:

I am organising a "To Hell with the Full Moon" ride. A stunning ride at the best of times, even better doing it there and back at full moon.

Moon and Sun info for the relevant days: Prince Albert

Friday January 9 2009
MR 18:28
SS 19:45

Saturday January 10 2009
MS 4:19
SR 05:34
MR 19:27
SS 19:45

Sunday January 11 2009
SR 05:35
MS 05:35 (Full Moon 5:28)


Friday January 10 2009
Ride from Prince Albert, up the Swartberg Pass and then up and down and up, down and down, up and down to Gamkaskloof (about 6-7 hrs)

Saturday 11 January 2009
Explore the valley, get a sneak preview of Die Leer, sleep in the shade, swim in the river.
At about midnight, start back, aiming to be at the top of the Swartberg Pass before dawn to watch the moon set and the sun rise over the Karoo.
Free wheel down to Prince Albert for breakfast.

There is a place to get food down in the kloof, so all one needs is a hammock to hang under a thorn tree.

If enough people ride, we can organise a backup vehicle to come into the kloof.

Apologies for the formatting, came out differently from how it was meant to!
