Misty Primates

Day Two of our road trip saw us leaving early for Hazyview in the mist as we had to be at the Skyway Trails by 8am. BUT Bumblebee could not go any farther and threw the towel in few kilometers outside Sabie. It looked like a circuit board that regulates the fuel injection was fried. Vespa South Africa who supposed to go with us as the organizers and marketers of the Mille pulled out in the last weeks leading up to the event stating too few numbers to justify them sending a service van and a mechanic along. They went on to say that if we did have a problem they would send the service van out. But Vespa South Africa went back on their word and would not sent a mechanic out to help us. Luckily Stafford had AA and they put him up in an lodge back at Sabie and sent out their breakdown van the next day. The vibe against Vespa South Africa wasn't pleasant after that incident. Anyway we headed to Hazyview a bit later without Stafford to do the Skywail Trail and book into Gecko Lodge. We had a wonderful time swinging from tree to tree with Nozipho and Richard as our guides. In the canopies it was hot and humid but it didn't phase us as we were enjoying ourselves. Afterwards the depleted team visited Pilgrims Rest while I headed for Hendriksdal to visit my folks.
