A few weeks ago I had lunch with the owner of the RD hotel.
We were talking about the road to RD and how it corresponded with the current road. He was of the opinion that there were in fact two roads to RD. The wagon track and a different more direct route used by the horsemen. The second track, the horsemen used, is the trail that he lets his guests use, he calls it the Bridal Track. I do know that there are also opinions that the original road travels higher ( North) than the existing road. That makes sense in that the boulders around the present Bashe crossing point are really bad. Does anyone have any further information on this at all?

regards

Hi springbok9,

Correct, there were two 'roads" the one was a shortcut used by horsemen. Ken Gillngs and Ron Locke gave a talk at RD hotel on this very subject in April. Suggest you pm Ken for more details of route etc .

PS; please redirect all your Cape "weather" to the deep south Atlantc.
