    With storm straps if there is a gale.
    Nice to feel extra secure!

    Re: Power for a modem

    The power unit to be plugged into 220V which came with the modem specifies 2 Amps output - I presume one cannot just connect a 12v input to the modem?

    They sliced our tent open - entered from the rear where they could not be seen.

    I lock everything away in the car when going for game drives.

    It is due to water intoxication!!!


    Some of the animals drink too much water too quickly, resulting in water intoxication.
