Re: Not a trip, just looking for a campsite

Should we tell "the American" it's fine to camp at Zoo Lake or Emmarentia dam? :rolling: :rolling: Seriously Josh - Head out north less than 100 km to Dinokeng where there are various options. I can recommend Kyleu - unfenced wild and with a choice of shower/toilet facilities or not. If you forego t...

The idea behind the box is that I can leave it in the vehicle or remove and leave at a campsite with the fridge etc..... If remaining in the vehicle I have a solar input plug and 12V input or output in the back bumper which can plug into the box inside. Power Station top.jpg Inside is fairly basic ...

Re: Vehicle permits needed for transkei

You only need a permit to venture off proclaimed and/or designated roads within 1 km of the high water mark. Check with the accommodation owners if they are on such a road or not. I believe the road to your accommodation is fine but of course if you want to go exploring you need the permit. There is...

Re: Duine trip 2019. ???

One option would be to go back to Boegoeberg. Another would be 24 to 29 Sep. We would be travelling there on the 24th and arrive when the dragster crowd leave, but get an extra day there. However would need to take one day extra leave. Dirk please add my and Anzel's name for whenever and wherever it...

Re: New Powermax tyres

Have had the MT's on "The Firetruck" for less than 1 000 km so far and can confirm that wet weather unloaded tar handling and braking is as good if not better than STT Pro's and far superior to BF's. Will still be careful the first time I load up and hook the trailer. Noise levels similar to STT Pro...
