  3. Re: Long distance driving, and the role that speed plays in your fatigue

    And do the Forest Drive between Debegeni and Woodbush! IMO it is better to do the drive up than down. Sounds like a fantastic trip Henk, may you all enjoy every moment of it!

    Re: Magoebaskloof - winter camping

    Just stay some distance off the R71 or other main roads; the area has become popular for rowdy crowds. Yes it does get very cold at night; take those extra blankets, beanies, scarves and gloves.

    Well, two years ago the going rate to have your car guarded by self-employed brash street thugs was R80; adjusting for inflation they'll probably demand R100 now. Rather go to Kaapschehoop.
