  1. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    The AT22's work well when deflated , they dont do that flat spot, they dont even appear to be deflated.
    I did go down to 0.6 on the most difficult dunes, but did most of the trip at around 0.7-0.8...
  2. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    2 specific incidents in the Namib taught me a lot about the sand and taught me what to look out for, both of those happened while I was on foot and I will add some of it it the upcoming videos.

  3. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    The Kalahari sand is more red and feels finer and more heavy to me. The Amam sand is blown in strong wind and it the more coarse sands drop out of the wind first. The Adam sand feels more coarse.

  4. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    Ek sien hulle is baie sag. Ek dink nie my standaard FJ sal daar veel regkry nie, dalk met n bietjie groter tekkies.
    Ek kyk na OME suspensie ook.
  5. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    I found the round dunes to be more compacted and easier going, but depending on the wind direction the loose sand to be more difficult. The Kalahari sand is more consistent.

    In one of the later...
  6. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    Back on topic, I have a question, I have a number of people saying the videos are too long, yet I cannot imagine cutting more out without loosing the spirit of it, any comments on the length of the...
  7. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    But I am also convinced that I had 5th for the first part of the Namib.
  8. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    Didn't get up to the red line, the FJ doesnt red line at 4 500 like the diesels >:D
  9. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    The situation was having a couple of small steep dunes with tight turns, then 200m flat to the next couple of small dunes with tight turns.
    LR was much better than HR in the tight turns, but I...
  10. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    There is not a definite answer in that thread , speculation. i seem to remember getting 5th , will still investigate.
  11. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    It seems strange, but perhaps it is.
  12. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    I am pretty sure it did shift into 5th when I got it. I could be wrong, but Ill see if I can see it in some of the older footage.

    It seems like it could be a fault code that is set that then...
  13. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    The Gopro 7 does an excellent job of image stabilizing, there seem to be a big jump from the earlier models to the 7 black which was why I got it in the first place.
    the Gopro 8 and up seem to be...
  14. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    I did not cath the first part of the story about the forming of the dunes on camera, the dunes are formed by sand brought down by the Orange river being pushed north by the Benguela current that is...

    Re: We need to define what exactly “camping” is.

    This is a good definition in my eyes.

    I just spent a week in a tent camp in Meob bay where tents are permanently erected and I did not consider it camping.

    On the way there we erected tents...

  19. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    I have to add that you have to carry the aditional fuel for emergencies, for example if you get a problem and miss the tide you will have to do a lot more dune driving. We just managed to squeeze...

    Re: Klein Pella - Easter 2021

    Excellent report

    I will still try to get the videos together, just running around a bit and need to get the Namib videos at least organized while my memory is still fresh.
  24. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    Ek het ongelukkig baie min footage van buite af met die FJ aangesien daar nie tyd was om kamera op te stel nie, maar ek het darrem so 1 of 2 stukke. die res is meestal met die kamera aan boord en van...
  25. Re: Crossing the Namib From Kanaan to Meob bay to Walvis bay

    My grootste probleem met die FJ was spoed, as hy eers op spoed is dan is dit asof hy boop die sand hardloop , en dan moet jy versigtig wees. Ek het een duin begin klim, toe kom ek agter my spoed is...
