    Thanks for arranging the permits Jean. Much appreciated. Sounds like the guys are cautious of the dunes until after midday. Maybe a good start would be 12H00 then.... Meaning moving into the dunes at 12... Lets go see how far we get when the sand is at its worst.

    Sakkie, normally around midday, its difficult to read the dunes. The sun is right above, and more care is needed when approaching the hills.
    There are other places to play there though.

    Keith, one does not willingly get into a vehicle with the FAC guys at AD - not if you are a crappy passenger.

    Sakkie, who is on the list for Saturday ? Maybe I must reschedule, to get to meet more guys.

    Oh OK then, I thought you may be a passenger with XJJunkie. You wont need the Bonine and Dramamine then.

    Guys, just a word of advice for the Saturday, please come up with a plan on how you intend to communicate with one another. Radios comms are critical for big groups.
