    How much thicker, denser and coarse is the dust the lower and closer to the ground you get. I can still only see an advantage to pull air in at snorkel height. My normal air intake sits right behind...

    Ek sal kyk hoe lyk sake wanneer die geld daar is. My worry is dat my bande wat nou op die Sani is, is al agt jaar oud, en begin kraak. Weet nie of hulle amper 1400km gaan maak Kaap toe nie.
