Re: River Trip Safety - how many cars is safe

I've done it with just two vehicles before - me in my 4.5 and the old man in his 4.5. However, the 4x4AG were also in the river at the same time.

Re: Strap behind rear (middle) seats??

You use them to secure the seats when they are folded forward. Strap goes around the "O-flip handvatsel" on the pillar behind the driver door.

I have bad news. My Namibia project has shifted back two weeks. This means I get back from Namibia around RT time. I am going to have to sit this one out. Jammer. :sad: :sad: :sad:
