    It's confirmed, but DO NOT book, we will do a group booking once we know who all is in.

    So who is in ?

    I'll be asking guys like Johan, Green&Gold, IceMan, Rowan etc to help with arrangements.
    Let's just get a list of attendees & work out costs for now.
    We will start planning & booking in a week or two...

    Thanks Manny.

    I wanted to include the GTG in a longer trip, Namakwaland flowers etc. but that 9, 10, 11 Aug. is too early for the flowers, so it will have to be a seperate trip just for the GTG .. will discuss with Swambo.

    Maybe combine GTG with Riemvasmaak, Augrabies .. we'll let you know.

    Yes, aware of River Trip.
    River Trip (& fuel prices & distance) will prevent many upcountry guys from attending.
    But River Trip won't affect attendance by the Northern Cape guys...

    I'm doing Old Boys the weekend before & then will fly down to either Upington or Kimberley & get picked up there...

    If you fly to Upington I might be at the airport, if you behave yourself leading up to the gtg.

    Witsand have 10 chalets; 6/ chalet, 7 bungalows; 20 people, 10 campsites.

    Boegoeberg dam have 4 chalets; 4/ chalet, 2 bungalows; 4 people, manny campsites. The dam is, for you Manny, on the Cape Town side of the Orange River.

    Transboegoe is on the Joburg side of the Orange River, and only have campsites. The 4x4 route is on this farm. I think Frans has been there.

    Want to know more?

    I am also in. Is the camping confirmed for Witsand? I have done the route twice but camped at Kheisriverside lodge. They have chalets snd enough camping place. The route they arrange have the big challenge dune on which is difficult to conquer with anything except quads or bikes.

    Ek sal al die donderagaand daar wees en wil graag n chalet boek. Ek wil nie sover sleep net vir n naweek nie. Ek sien baie uit. Jeep fan weet van n lekker roete met n duin waar niemand nog kon uit nie! Praat van n challenge!

    Depends on how many people will arrive on Thursday, otherwise I'll only go from the Friday. Don't know the other places, but if we are going to witsand, I'll take a bungalow for me and swambo.
