    Dont wory about the weather, sometimes wet weather can add new dimensions to the trails which can become quite exciting. Just concentrate, listen to the bosses and enjoy.

    Absolutely fine to meet at De Kraal. I will be driving through from PE directly to De Kraal. Ryan will meet the rest at Mitsubishi Motors in East London.

    Will you be joining us on Saturday for training?

    Maybe we should have a quick check on who wants to do a trail on Saturday rather than training? I will be doing training as there are 9 booked already.

    4ePajero and I will also go directly to De Kraal.


    Maybe we should just meet there and play it by ear regarding training/trail.

    I will meet you guys there. I don't mind either way regarding trail/training. As 4epikanini asks above is it possible for us to make a call there tomorrow morning?

    I had good fun. My adrenaline needs replenishing - it's all used up.

    It is nerve wrecking for me as a newby to see your father's vehicle tipping and looking like it might 'donder' over but all went well and my fears were subdued.

    My confidence built rapidly in my ability and most of all the ability of the vehicle.

    I am astounded by the capabilities of a pajero. I have seen many videos and pictures but seeing and doing it in the flesh is a humbling experience.

    I only bent the plate that holds the trailer electric plug. Other than that I never bottomed out and got stuck once in a dip as I hesitated and didn't have enough momentum to go through. Dad pulled me out.

    It's not something I would do often as I'm scared of damaging the vehicle ( even though the car is probably nowhere near it's limit ) and I realised that I'm too much of a 'worry-pot' but would definitely like to go again sometime.

    It was great fun and the trainers and spotters put me at ease by the end of the first day.

    Thanks to all who enjoyed the trip with us. It was a memorable day.
    I enjoyed it and learned a lot.
