Newbie from Potchefstroom

Post by Simon Brace » 30 Oct 2018 19:30

Hi there folks,

Have been hovering around this site for a while and finally earned the right to join this noble rabble. Some of the folks on this site were instrumental in bending my arm to go for a Patrol. I have embraced the 4.8 and the hair on my chest and back is now 4 inches longer. My kids spent weeks just playing in the Patrol. I have 5 kids and afterwards it was like a coke had exploded in the vehicle. Sticky everywhere, but nothing a pile of baby wipes cannot sort out. We have taken the vehicle to the Wild Coast on a very memorable holiday and that is what it is all about: Making memories where few can go. Looking forward to learning from this group and finding out about the Patrol and where on earth we can go with this chariot of fun in this wonderful part of the world.

Take care
