    Re: You never know what's out there

    East wind blowing out on the Wes Kus which means soaring temperatures and blue skies.

  4. Re: When can we go camping 4x4ing again? Or even camping?

    If you drive a Defender, like I do, any time after 1st June.

    Re: Leopard kill, Orange River

    Ha Ha, yes they are a bit of a pet project for me.
