    Default Brrrrrrr! And the rain just kept coming down!

    Hey all

    OK. So the plan was to go to Hennops Pride (not River as in my previous post) and when we got there the lovely old dear at the gate recommended that we NOT do the trail. Due to all the rain she said it would be really dangerous, she then showed us a picture of a bakkie that he previously gone through the river and ended up dead!

    So we headed 7 km down the road to Hennops. Shew, and that is when the rain started, and did it stop..... like hell it did.

    Anyways, it was my first time doing a trail in these condition and again the Cherokee did well (did not get stuck this time!) but boy was she slipping and sliding. Also those tyres I've got had f%kol grip in the mud and that slip diff was having a field day in the wet weather, spinning away like nobodies business.

    My other neighbour came along in his Navara and with his difflock he was up 'n over everything thing that we tried.... shame the cherokee don't have one....

    It was very quiet there today, we bumped into 3 other cars and that was it. And the rain, that pissing rain, even with a rainmac I got home soaked to the bone, needed a stiff Jack to get the blood pumping nice again...

    Herewith the pics, I would have got more but the frickin rain was heavy most of the time.

    Fancy some wet?

    and some more... this is the picnic area, no cars, no people, no Quaggas...just water


    Here are some action shots





    Right, time to go and wring out my shirt, jacket, socks, shorts and undies...

    Hey Bundu

    Looks like you had a great time.. I also just got in from Mahem. Seriously wet and got stuck a coupla times.... Once the sludge was up to the bottom of my door and twice my crappy breakover angle caught me out and got me beached with all 4 wheels off the ground..

    I'm also just getting warmed up and dried out... See what pics I managed to get and post them later.

    Hi All

    Sorry to chase you around like this, but pictures are too many and by too many people, so I am just going to post the link to the site where the final report has been posted.

    Hey nice pics there, looks like Mahem was drowning just as much as the rest of us

    So Mahem looks like a mine area or something, interesting, looks like a good place for a bash around...

    Was anyone else brave enough to get out there on this soggy weekend?

    Jy weet mos jy's enige tyd welkom tjom. Daai roete is anders elke keer wat jy hom ry. En daar's klomp plekke waar die konstruksie ouens sand steel vir bou, so speelplek is klomp.

    Did a road trip to the Karoo and back mostly on dirt roads, via Swartberg Pass and the Groenefontein Nature Reserve - scarier than Swartberg Pass! Pics attached

    Default De Wildt

    Was at De Wildt today, here are some pics of how the FT did on the obstacles.

    Seen pics of spinning an dust fly everywhere, the only time I lost traction is displayed in the photos below. The overall performance of the FT was awesome considering it still has the highway tires on, articulation is also pretty good for the stock suspension. (Ref Photo of FT from rear) I am planning on installing OME suspension this week so I needed some comparison, once the OME and new tires have been installed ill be heading back to De Wildt

    What to install next .... number plates

    You left the pics out of the big twisting hill to the lookout... Thats the best obstacle then the rock face and the river bed with the 6 way... but looks like you had fun by those pics...

    Wish I could talk my Brother in Law into fitting a bullbar to his so he can do a bit heavier stuff without scratching his bumpers. It holds him back big time..

    Your FT looks cool with that Bullbar on it..

    Hi all

    Did not do too much this weekend, but I did experience something absolutely horrific.

    Some of you may have heard on the radio of a motorcyclist who had an accident at the Malinbongwe / River Road junction in Kya Sand today, was about 10.00am

    Well that very biker overtook me no more than 30 seconds before having his accident. It was horrible. We approached the junction and saw that there was a fire in the middle of the road. When we got close we realised that it was a motorbike, we then realised that the biker was stuck underneath his bike smothered in flames!!

    The 2 or 3 cars that were ahead of us had stopped and 3-4 guys all tried to go in a grab him to pull him out, but each time they got close they'd jump back because of the heat from the flames. My missus was crying and screaming the whole time for someone to pull him out, but nobody could get close.

    The guy was screaming and flailing in pain and he just managed to kick the bike away from him and got up. You could see he was in a total state of shock cause he walked slowly away still on fire. Luckily there was a vehicle there who had a fire extinguisher and he managed to put the poor guy out.

    If you could have seen this guy, his trousers up to his waste were totally burnt off and his skin was a horrible yellow. He was just standing there while onlookers were trying to get him to sit down. It took the medical services over 10 minutes to arrive and last we heard he was fighting for his life in hospital.

    Both my missus and I are feeling very unwell about the situation, no doubt we also suffered shock from this incident. And to think I made way for this guy to go past me, as I do for all bikers and 30 seconds later he is being burnt alive. If I'd been an ass and not let him past, maybe things would have been different.

    Whoever you are, my prayers go out to you and your family. I will remember the scene always

    At the scene there was a Kia Sportage which had stopped right in front of the burning motorcycle. It had little to no damage which leads me to believe that the biker either tried to turn, or braked too hard, and fell over causing the bike to slide along the road. The sparks then ignited the fuel from the bikes tank. Whether the bike hit the Kia I do not know.
    [EDIT] - NEWS REPORTS STATED HE HIT A FLATBED TRUCK, I DO NOT RECALL SEEING A FLATBED TRUCK BUT CONCEDE THAT THIS MAY HAVE OCCURRED, THE KIA MAY HAVE BEEN A BYPASSER.

    http://www.news24.com/News24/South_A...300904,00.html


    I do not know who was in the wrong here, the biker (gunning to get through the light) or the Kia driver (jumping the red, or pre-empting the robot turning green). But the outcome was wrong.

    PLEASE - to all of those great members here on 4x4com, if you enjoy the Sunday Biker run, then PLEASE be careful. Once you get back over the N14 highway towards Kya Sand, tone it down. This is evidence that it can happen to anyone.

    Default Karee Krans 4x4

    Hi,

    Did the Karee Krans 4x4 over the easter weekend. this was my first trail and although my wife decided it was safer to walk over some of the obstacles i managed quite well. there was just one section where you need to get out of the river and after the morning's rain it was like ice skating with rugby boots on . the Disco slipped off sideways of the slope a couple of times and because you're coming out of the river the bank just gets wetter and more snotty with every attempt. Eventually i got enough momentum in the river bed and with low range diff lock I managed to get out of there - much to the family's relief. The rest of the trail was also a lot of fun with a very steep descent down the mountain. I had to disengage the Disco's descent control because it was going down too fast for my liking . The camp terrain was great and well worth a weekend's visit.

    Default Outdoor Arena - Bonnievale

    Ek, vroulief en die twee kinders was die naweek in Bonnievale by Outdoor Arena Lodge. Ek het nou wel nie 4 x 4 gery nie, maar het 'n heerlike dag langs die talle dammetjiies gehad met my seuntjie en net visgevang.

    Die verblyf is uitstekend skoon en netjies met alle geriewe en meer wat jy selfs by jou eie huis het. Daar is ongelukkig net 3 pragtige hout huisies met 'n stoepie waarvan jy selfs kan visvang.

    Daar is alle soorte karp en kurper asook barber en bass. Heelikr tyd gehad. Doen jul self 'n guns en gaan besoek die plek, dis die rustigheid van self.
