    Re: The EPIC River Trip 2020

    The driftwood available along the river has become less and less every year, and I think the local communities really don't like these "tourists" burning away a weeks firewood every evening.

    Henk,
    I never claimed to be an expert, and have no beef with Securetech, in fact, I think most of my kit is from Securetech.

    Re: Which snatch rope?

    You should know better than anyone here.

    A flat snatch strap is tightly weaved and when used, is pulled very tight. This tightly pulled strap then needs a few hours to “relax” before it can be...

    Re: Lithium 444 first impressions?

    If it is a LiPo battery as they state, it can be discharged to roughly 20% of charge.
    So its 444w capacity is about 37 ah on a 12v batt.
    the full battery is then about 41ah.
    No Idea why anyone...

    Seems to have a fake bonnet over the engine, and another fake bonnet on the roof to hide the “stepped roof” of the Disco shape
    And some padding on the window sills to hide a design line.

    It seems as if it was designed to overcome everything with fully inflated tyres, I cannot wait to see where it goes with appropriately deflated wheels.
