    Even if it was possible, you'll never be allowed to own high level nuclear waste. We used just a tiny low level radioactive isotope as the background source to survey hollow structural steel tubing...
  15. Re: Travel advice Northern Namibia and northern Botswana : mid-November to mid-decemb

    Far too much driving. Namibia and Botswana are long distance low speed countries. You'll be tired every day and have to set up and break camp daily. Rather stay over 2 or more nights per location....

    Re: How Important Is Ramp Travel Index (RTI)?

    Firstly. How do you calculate the RTI?

    Secondly. If it's related to the breakover angle, no vehicle stuck on it's belly will go anywhere, even with traction control.
