2016/03/10, 12:02 – Monique De Kock: I read an article of an astronaut, after having returned to earth from space how his body and overall constitution had deteriorated, and I came to this conclusion – “When we transition to the other side, it is blast off for the Soul, like a Space Rocket into the Power Dimension, nothing deteriorates, only gains energy momentum-within multi-dimensions, suspended in space!”

2016/03/10, 13:46 – AFreda de Kock: Barry has arrived in Agulhas safely. Covered in dust and happy. As soon as he can find somewhere with Wi-Fi he will catch up and update. Wishes all his friends were there with him.

2016/03/10, 16:01 – Barry de Kock: Have a Garmin, but just the unit with me, Edge 800, not Wi-Fi capable. If you can advise how to, I will do it.

2016/03/10, 16:15 – Norman van der Merwe: Barry, as far as I know and what I do is, you can download Garmin Connect to your phone via Wi-Fi and then connect your Garmin instrument via Bluetooth to your phone and once the activity is downloaded to Garmin Connect, send to Strava, also via Wi-Fi.

2016/03/10, 16:19 – Mark Segers DOC: Hi Barry the Garmin 500 and 800 can’t connect to Garmin live. You can use Strava and just save the ride every day. Then we can follow you every day.

2016/03/10, 18:01 – Barry de Kock: Thanks Norm, unit to old, does not have Wi-Fi or Bluetooth😱

2016/03/12, 19:15 – AFreda de Kock: Hi all. This is the message I received from Barry just after 3.30 “Ek is by Malgas, laaaang en warm dag, sit nou net eers en rus vir ‘n ruk dan sal ek bel en hoor waar my boot is. Vir elke 1 afdraende is daar 4 opdraendes. “. A farmer would take Barry across the river with his boat as the Pont is being serviced.

2016/03/12, 19:17 – Tony Allerton: Why can’t he swim across? Ha! Ha! Ha! Tony

2016/03/12, 19:18 – Barry de Kock: Have Wi-Fi, Bull sharks in river

2016/03/12, 19:18 – AFreda de Kock: He will sleep on the farm which is on the northern side of river in Witsand. He sounded tired when I spoke to him. I don’t think that he has any cell phone reception where he is camping. Ha-ha, Tony

2016/03/12, 19:21 – Dave Agrella: Looking good!

2016/03/12, 19:21 – Nico/Piet De Kock: Dit lyk mooi daar en lekker rus Barry

2016/03/12, 19:35 – AFreda de Kock: I think Barry is having far too much fun without me!😱I was wrong. He is going to cycle to Witsand tomorrow. He is still in Malgas, just on the other side of the river, dining at a pizza place and will be sleeping in the farmers’ house. So much for slumming it!😜 . I think Barry is experiencing the true kindness and hospitality that we forget exists in this beautiful country of ours. So as Ervin would say – give that farmer a Bells!

2016/03/12, 19:41 – Hilda van Niekerk: Enjoy Barry!

2016/03/12, 19:44 – Tony Allerton: Hear hear Freda. South Africans are well known for their hospitality and long may it continue. Tony x

2016/03/13, 06:43 – Barry de Kock: My host at Malgas, Brain had SAA connections in terms of a bursary in the early 80’s. Very gracious people in the Malgas area. Good sleep, short day to Witsand, about 35km. Till next time…….🚵👍

2016/03/16, 08:43 – AFreda de Kock: My Lovie, is a strong Boer. Was a bit concerned about him yesterday. He took a huge amount of strain from Witsand to Stilbaai. Eating too little and had far too much sun and wind, but he sounds good today. Love you B. 😘❤💋

2016/03/16, 08:56 – Tony Allerton: What a fabulous and caring wife Barry has. Freda his love for you will see him through this ‘once in a lifetime experience’ I have said this before, he is doing something most of us can only dream about. Much love to you both. Tony xx

2016/03/16, 09:52 – Monique De Kock: We celebrate, My Dad upon, his return, in time for His Birthday next Sunday! I am so proud of My Dad, A Profound and Deep Man of many a talent! His favourite all time band is Pink Floyd, and to quote Roger Waters from Pink Floyd, this is My Dad: “The Memories Of A Man In His Old Age, Are The Deeds Of A Man In His Prime!”  Barry De Kock A Man Of True Character! I Love You, My Phenomenal Dad! xxx

2016/03/16, 10:00 – Monique De Kock: Uncle George, Thank You for seeing the last leg of My Dad’s Journey through with him, and for You and Aunty Sue, being the friends You are to My Mom and Dad! You both are part of their joy! May Your ride together be amazing!

2016/03/16, 10:34 – George Fitzpatrick: It’s a great pleasure Monique, can’t wait to see him!

2016/03/16, 14:43 – Barry de Kock: Hello all, after some Magumpa hills and strong wind, I have made it to a very special place, the Sauerman farm in the Albertinia district. Two tough, hard days, not eating properly whilst riding I was very sore and stiff arriving here yesterday and it felt like flu symptoms. Loads of healthy food and being spoilt and I am feeling a lot better today. Think I will take another rest day tomorrow. It has been an amazing experience and adventure this far. Backside somewhat tender, ego slightly dented due to not eating while riding, but will be back on the saddle soon. Some photos to follow. In the process of updating the Kruzer blog. Resting the body.

2016/03/16, 14:46 – Hilda van Niekerk: Rus lekker Barry, hoop jy voel gou beter🚴

2016/03/16, 15:04 – Barry de Kock: According to Strava, I have climbed 7,543 meters since 01 March. 7.5km carrying 45 plus kg, 😱, clothes that used to fit is now way to big, luckily I have rope to use as a belt. The pin that stretches the Brooks saddle, gone, snapped and lost somewhere, now have 2 tennis balls 🎾🎾 stuck between leather and rails for suspension and TLC to the tender bits.😂, but, I have been told that I have always been a “Hardegat”
