    Re: Load shedding and caravans or trailers!

    We have the option of a gas stove and an induction stove.
    The gas hardly ever gets used.
    Induction outdoors is the best as there is no issue with the wind

    Re: Reseal licence disk holder

    I laminate my disk and then insert into holder.
    Alternatively buy clear packaging tape and stick over both sides of licence disc then cut out.

    A few years ago Mikes pass used to be a drivable pass but has not been open for a long time. Most probably overgrown now and just a hiking path

    Re: The do's and dont's of sand driving

    Some people advocate using the rear diff lock when driving in thick sand.
    This doesn't seem logical to me so I have never used it.
    Am I wrong?

    Re: Overlanding.. Do you really need a 4x4?

    Maybe you should ask this:
    How many overlanders first had a 2x4 then bought a 4x4 and now have decided that to go back to a 2x4?
    I doubt there would be many

    For me, having 4x4 is peace of mind.

    I do however engage 4x4 on most dirt roads as it helps with ride quality and...
