After advice from South African friends, we'd rented a "backie" a 4X4 in Bloemfontein and driven into the beautiful mountain kingdom where we were told giant potholes and boulder-ridden rural roads awaited us.
Five of us in the front and 17 in the back, our backie was now a minibus.
As we prepared to swing the backie downward, a Volkswagen Golf bounced past us in the opposite direction, having given up on the attempt, its sober-looking occupants clinging on in their own white-knuckle ride.
Eugene, Oregon's Jonah Owen was oozing steez, Johnnie Paxson was twisting 270 on the hard way to 270 out, Celeste Rhoads was front-boarding smooth as anything, someone did a backie on the mini kicker ... and then my paring meter ran out and it was time to peace!
To our left we have a small unassuming backie-type vehicle, which in partnership with a nearby tree suspends two hammocks and their inhabitants.
