Day 2: Kimberley to Bloemfontein — 16 April
We had a good night’s rest at the Bikers Church in Kimberley. Thank you to Flip Kuhn and for hosting us for the second year of the Chutzpah journey with Dave Barr. We started off a bit later than planned but soon we were on our way to Bloemfontein.
The church community was very warm, welcoming and supportive. Fires were blazing into a warm winter’s braai. You can feel the seasons are changing, we really felt it in Kimberley for the first time but it was fresh and we were in great company and happy that we were finally on the road.
It felt great to be back on the road with moving landscapes all around us.
Mark Bowron, one of Dave’s long time friends who joined Dave from America for the Chutzpah Aventure gave a lift to a journalist from SABC Digital News.
Airforce Von was very entertaining whenever we made a stop from dancing to playing good tunes there was never a dull moment.
Bill Lebeda, another one of Dave’s companions from America said that the drive from the Northern Cape to the Freestate reminded him of the landscapes in Texas.
We arrived at Harley Davidson in Bloemfontein with Gert Le Roux and his team who organised a warm welcome to a meet Dave Barr.
150 patties of meat was prepared on the braai for a hamburger feast of a dinner.
Dave gave a passionate talk to a sea of listeners at Harley Davidson Bloemfontein.
Time for a good night’s rest at the Protea Hotel in Bloemfontein as tomorrow we will ride our longest stretch of the trip. Next stop, Cape Town.
