Newbie Oldie Capey

Post by Spike »

Hello. I typed out a long detailed intro, twice, a few days apart, and both times the thread disappeared when posting. So to hell with it.
Suffice to say ....
Hello, thanks for having me,
I recently bought a Patrol "for personal use" here in ZA,
Some might remember fondly/unfondly from my involvement in the establishment of 4x4community as well as some involvement with Cruiserclub,
I lost plak with forums and been off them for years but this one seems different so I gave it a bash specially considering that I don't have a slave to maintain this Patrol and will need help to learn to do it myself.
I recognise a lot of guys here from my previous forum life as well as several guys who I'm friends with in the cape 4x4 scene.
Thankyoudankie
