This afternoon a biggish group jogged from Deryck's house. This, of course, meant that we started with the familiar nasty climb before hitting the jeep track. We jogged all the way to the contour path at the top of Brandwacht, and then took our customary single track towards Paradyskloof. We decided to cut the jog a little shorter, randomly trying a new single track or two while descending in the direction the dam. Just after the dam we turned towards the swamp and without to many losses we emerged with dirty but cooled down feet. From here on it was a small climb to the cement dam and then a fast paced finish back home.
