Re: Richtersveld December 2018

Rhett, Ai-Ais looked like a nice place to camp for a day or two. It was clean but there was one guy in a bakkie who played music for the whole resort.There are different accommodation options available. Unfortunately it is not on route to somewhere, you have to drive out of your way to get there. Mi...

Re: Richtersveld December 2018

:goodpost: Need to plan a trip to Richtersveld as well, looks very nice. What is that white thing in the last photo? Hi Rudolph Ian is correct about the solar power plant near Upington. It uses mirrors to reflect the sun against the tower to heat up water. The steam created with this heat then driv...

Re: Richtersveld December 2018

26 December We left Potjiespram and took the road through De Hoop towards Richtersberg. At first we didn’t have a nice camping spot (no shade at all) but when our neighbours decided to move on, we moved to their spot where we had shade in the afternoons. We chilled the rest of the day and did the no...

Re: Richtersveld December 2018

24 December We did sightseeing in the park and cooled off in the river, braai, drink, etc. 25 December We decided to go and see what Ai-Ais look like. After clearing customs and crossing the river we were once again wondering how can Namibia keep their dirt roads in such good condition. On the way t...

Re: Burst Water Pipe - Near Miss

Hi Ian
Yes, that was me. I was also a bit late seeing you because I was constantly looking at the water temp gauge.
It was not a rooftop tent but Tentco bags on the roofrack.

Re: Burst Water Pipe - Near Miss

It seems that a few of us had water leak problems recently. On 22 December at 4h00 in the morning I filled up with petrol in Vryburg. Went to the restroom and on return found my car standing in a puddle of water. There is a water outlet on the right hand side of the engine with 2 hoses connecting to...

Re: Airbag light reset prosedure

If you reset the airbag with the ignition on/off method it will flash a code which you can use to determine which airbag is problematic. After switching on/off 4 times and before removing the key, start the car and after 7seconds the airbag light will go off and then start to flash a code repeatedly...
