    Re: Tandoor Oven

    Looks really good but just a quick question. How do you clean out the old burnt out ashes? I was thinking of doing the fire bit on some kind of slide out tray but haven't figured it out yet.

    Re: Land Cruiser 4.2 1HZ Double cab speed uphill?

    Thanks guys. That's only marginally heavier than my outlander so I guess I could live with it. Faster cars only mean more speeding fines of which I've had about enough.

    Butha Buthe to Sani pass

    Has anyone been this way recently via the A1?
    What are road conditions like?
    Google maps says it's about a 3 hour drive but I suspect those maps don't realise what Lesotho roads are actually like.
