Finally, about a year after the epic low-water-boat-dragging-2500km-Triwaters Tour some proper rain fell in the upper Vaal River catchment.
Late February 2016, with support from Jubba, Sam and Bronwyn we made a two day pilgrimage to a section I am convinced will provide less flat water and more rapids we set off on adventure again to the farm Klipbank between Ermelo and Piet Retief.
The water level was still low, but a million times better than the Triwaters experience. What took us a full day and into the night a year ago, was now accomplished in about six hours!
Significantly better flow got us to actually paddle most of day 1 and all of day 2 of this fun weekend trip.
With even more water this section may even hold the promise of adrenaline!
