    Default Klein Letaba/Molototsi river trips for 2008

    Hi Everybody,
    It is time again to start organising the next river trip. Due to the response we had last year we are going to organise 2 or 3 trips this year. We do not want to take more than 10/11 vehicles per trip. The guys that went last year will have first choice on which trip they want to do.
    Last year we did the Molototsi and then the Klein Letaba. I think everybody will agree that the Klein Letaba turned out to be the more challenging one. This year we are thinking of cutting out the Molototsi and do only the Klein Letaba.
    The reason for this is that we want to do a reccie trip. We usually turned left after entering the river bed. This time we want to turn right and see how far we can go. Hopefully we can get up to the confluence with the big Letaba river.
    At this stage we do not have any dates. The calander is not playing ball either as far as long week ends is concerned. The first long week end that we are available is June 16th. This is however only a 3 day weekend and we will have to take at least 1 day extra. Either the Friday or the Tuesday. The next long week end is 24th September which falls on a Wednesday. This means we have to take 2 days. This we could combine into 2 trips. One from Saturday 20 to Wednesday 24 and the next from Wednesday 24 to Sunday 28.
    Please let me know who is interested and what dates will suit you. The above dates is only ideas and not fixed dates. Remember no trailers on this trip. The terrain just not lend itself for it.
    This invite is not limited to Gauyeng members only. It is open for everybody that want to join us.

    We would also like to join you guys this year, but it depends when it is.

    SWAMBO & "round number two" are scheduled to "pop" in June, so it really does make my chances that much slimmer......

    Maybe, this year, I can rally a "team" mate rather for the trip, and double the packing space for beer. With SWAMBO, I'm only allowed 2c/s per weekend............ the oppertunities are endless.

    Hi Castos,
    As I said on the first posting we are looking at 3 trips this year, so, yes we will be doing more than one trip for sure. As you can see the list is groing at such a rate that we may even be forced to do a third trip to accommodate the guys!!!!!!!!

    Herman,
    The initiations are close to that time, but as we are going in the opposite direction we will not run into any trouble during June. If the holiday in August move to the Friday then Bob's your uncle we WILL go that week end. In September the heat may be a problem the rain..............well it could be interesting.

    Castos & Landjero,
    Tussen julle twee is daar 10 voertiue. Dit is die maksimum getal wat ons op 'n slag kan vat. As dit reg is met julle kan ons 'n trip reel spesifiek vir julle en julle gevolg. Kyk bietjie na die datums en se watter julle sal pas. Ons kyk na 4 moontlike datums. Die naweek 16 Junie, die naweek 9 Augustus en dan September 20-24 of 24-28.
    Hierdie datums is die waarvoor die minste verlof ingesit moet word, maar ons kan ook moontlik kyk na ander datums waar 2 dae verlof nodig sal wees.

    Andre

    Behalwe Augustus sal ons plan kan maak vir enige ander datum waar jy ons ookal kan inkry. Die lang naweek van Augustus het ons reeds "Baltimore" bespreek. Bietjie off topic maar die ouens moet bietjie kyk na Baltimore wat plaasvind gedurende lang naweek van Augustus. Dit is n baie lekker familie 4x4 byeenkoms en goed georganiseerd. Ek het reed 3 gedoen en sal dit nie mis vir niks nie. Dit is hulle 10de verjaarsdag hierdie jaar en ons is vertel dit gaan hierdie jaar nog baie beter wees. Dit vind plaas naby Baltimore op n wildsplaas "Oryx Ranch"

    Terug by die klein letaba. Vier voertuie waar jy ons ookal kan inpas is reg vir ons.
    Baie dankie
    Johan Venter

    Sal graag dit ook wil maak en klink na fun! Wat is die kostes vir die trips? En dan wat is die "inisiasie" wat van gepraat word?

    David,
    Jy is welkom om saam te gaan. Die kostes is slegs R150/voertiug. Dit is om ons "gids" se kostes te dek. Ons vat vir Johan Maree saam as "gids" omdat hy die area so goed ken en al die ontsnap roetes ken. Hy kan ook die lokal taal praat.
    Die inisiasie wat ons van praat is die inisiasie van die lokals waar die seuns nou "manne" word en deel daarvan si ook die besnydings seromonies. Gedurende hierdie rituele is buite staanders taboe veral vrouens. Maar ons verwag nie eintlik probleme nie aangesien die inisiasies laaste keer in die Molototsi plaas gevind het, een van die redes waarom ons dit wil uitskakel.

    Castos, LandJero
    Ons kan die 16de Junie vir julle vasmaak, geen probleem nie. Onthou net daar is absoluut geen fasilityte nie. Moet al julle water saam dra want die rivier se water is nie geskik vir menslike gebriuk nie tensy jy dit eers kook. Toilette is 'n graaf en die bos. Ons kampeer in die rivierbed so teen 4uur in die middag en ry dan weer die volgende oggend so teen 8uur. Soos ek reeds gese het, geen sleepwaens of karavane nie daarvoor is die terrein te onvoorspelbaar. Die seksie wat ons wil doen hierdie jaar is totaal onbekend. Dit gaan dus 'n reccie trip wees en ons moet sien hoe ver ons kan vorder, hopenlik tot waar die Klei Letaba in die groot Letaba inloop.
    Sien uit daarna!!!!
