Glad you enjoyed the trip Sam. No doubt you will be back many times. It's amazing how quickly I start planning another trip when I get back. Recently been in Dec 2003 and whilst you were there, so that must mean another trip is due around June lol (I wish)

Yeah, I assumed you lot had crashed earlier on and didn't make it back out in time. Liz and I had slept in a bit that day so our possible earlier encounter took a fall here.

I have just bought my little black notebook which I will take with me to the 'Dam in 2 weeks time. This will enable me to keep track of where I visit, what I see and do, and more importantly, what weed I purchase and smoke. I will also be able to rate things as I go along. It should make a change fr...
