  1. Re: Advice needed on a "mik & druk" camera

    We've got the Canon SX70 and it's got what we need, which is a decent zoom and clarity, we use it for birding when we're battling to ID something that might fly away.

    But research all of them,...

  3. Re: Anyone recognise these roof rack clamps??

    Re: Afrispoor Serval

    Then you'll know the hike to Gudu Falls. If not, take the time for the hike up the river to the falls, take lunch and a bottle of wine, lovely spot. Enjoy, old hangout of mine.

    Just learned something new. Only issue is the size and weight of the thing, bulky and heavy. Can't find references for using a plasma rope rather than steel cable to lower weight somewhat, but at...

    Check that the stress of the hole you hit didn't damage the propshaft supports or support bearings. One way or another it sounds like propshaft.
