Marais aka "Dikseun" daar is geen post/poll op hierdie forum wat as "k#k" kwalifiseer nie, dit sal eerder "k#k" wees as daar geen post/poll is nie, mens het partykeer sulke topics nodig om die kreatiwiteit van die forum verbruikers mee te evalueer :woo: :rolling: :woo: :rolling:

In Cape Town I cycled to work, bought the Patrol for holidays and occasional vehicular requirements. It is our only vehicle. When I moved to Jozi, I had to use it for my everyday work commute and for all other driving chores.

I've noted that Global Warming accellerated drastically since then...
