    We used to be like that when we were employed. Friday 16:00 you leave your worries at the office. When you take leave, you switch off your phone. When you are self employed things are very different....

    Re: camping sites open?

    I doubt camping will be allowed. As the decision makers have no interest in camping nor understand it, so it must be an evil privelaged pastime.

    As expected the resort upkeep seems spot on, although it looks like a ghost town. Usually at sunset that deck is packed! Hope you are still enjoying your stay with the limited amenities Roelf.

    Re: Suspension upgrade

    I assumed it cant be done, as Camil didn't mention spacers as an alternative.

    Re: Suspension upgrade

    Got a reply from Camil this morning. 30mm at the back for R6500 excl. Nothing can be done at the front because Ford moved the anti - roll bar point? So I guess it stays as it is.

    Re: Heating a tent when off the grid camping

    Blankets, thermal underwear, and warm clothes / pj's. Heaters starve the tent of oxygen, and it makes for loads of condensation on top. It costs a fortune to run a gas heater all night. Also quite...
